No issues with Windows 8 and WinPv. If you cannot load downloaded maps you likely need to change the config so it opens .pvt files with WinPv, otherwise open them directly in the WinPv software by selecting open and choosing the appropriate file.

Windows 8 make sure install the program with administrator rights.
Also changes can be made after installed.

Probably a popup blocker issue. I'd say disable it for Fuelmotousa.com

[edit] never mind, just re-read that. As Jamie says, you need to be sure the .PVT files are associated with WinPV. The WinPV installation should have done that, but if not - go to the folder where any .PVT file is. Right click on a PVT file then choose "more options" and you should see WinPV in the list. PM me if you are still having trouble.

As Fuel Moto said, just go to their website and download the software.

Should be fine after that. I had the same issue.

Oh-

I had no idea anyone would try to view a .PVT file without an app that was made to do that. Just never occurred to me!

Maybe I misunderstood the question?

I know I had a laptop with an old version of Windowns on it, and couldn't do anything with the PV with my new laptop until I downloaded the update from the site.

Hating windows 8! lol

Windows 8.1 has an option you can set to boot to the desktop instead of the Start screen.

When you are in the desktop, right-click on the task bar, click "properties", then click on the "Navigation" tab, and check "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start"

If you arent on 8.1 you should be, its a free update, and it should be listed in Windows Update.

You probably need to go to the Tools section in IE and check the Compatibility Mode. With Windows 8 you have to check that to open sites and download from sites that were created for earlier versions of Windows and IE. My wife got a new computer with Windows 8 and had so much trouble downloading over Internet Explorer due to compatibility issues that I finally loaded Firefox for her browser and that solved all of the download issues. She has a business and depends on being able to download certain design purchases she makes. She no longer uses Internet Explorer that came packaged with Windows 8.
