SM8 and running W8.1


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

SM8 and W8.1. have many components in common.

It might be that some are fighting each other which is causing some minor issues.

Especially if the following are checked see screenshot.


W8.1 is drastically different from W8 they are two separate operating systems, and the free upgrade is available from the store

8.1 is a replacement OS, NOT an upgraded version, or an addition (ie service pack).

Having said this all of the users files\folders and settings are carried over to 8.1, thus causing these hiccups i believe.


Working your way around it without a manual is a pain would be nice to see one.

The best advice and tutorials can be found at Eightforums, which im finding really helpfull
