Can not install V41R8.exe on Windows 8.1

Postby ronfred » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:08 am

I have tried to run V41R8.exe on Windows 8.1 to install, but I only get a brief unreadable message, then nothing happens. Has anyone installed Warren's emulator on Windows 8.1?

I don't even have Windows 8 or 8.1 so sorry I have not tested it. It sounds like the install program is not working. What you can do is install it on another machine and simply copy the files over to your Windows 8 machine. The install program does not do anything special - it just extracts and copies files. There could still be a real incompatibility so I will wait to hear if anyone has had any success. Thanks, Warren

I didn't had any issue to install V41R8.exe on my Windows 8.1 PC. It's working fine after applying the same trick as for Vista or Windows 7, as described here: http://forum.hp41.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=69.

My account is an administrator one, have you tried to launch the installation with a right click on V41R8.exe followed by "Run as administrator"?

I did the following to get my v41 emulator to work on windows 8.1. I just copied the entire install directory from my windows xp system over to my windows 8.1 desktop. Now I can run without administrator with no problem.

Here is a directory listing of my install:
