Windows 8/Reason 6.5/AMD

Right,

Can anyone tell me what is going on.

Just installed windows8 and have an AMD processor. Apparently this means Reason will not work! WTF?! Please say this is a joke or I have overlooked a simple patch to solve this problem. Its not like Windows8 hasn't been available to test for about a year or anything?!

Check this thread out:

See the post at the bottom to get Reason to work.

I hope the fix they are working on will allow operation without Hyper V.

Tried Hyper V and still no joy. Tried everything and still get message during installation:

"Programme could not run due to unexpected problem"

Says the same thing when I try to install Authorizer.

I'm hoping there will will be an update on this issue from Props. Been a user since Reason 2 and now use this software for my work! Not good.

Anyone else emailed Props and had a reply? Not heard beck from them yet. Are they working on it or not?

There is no standalone download for Authorizer 2

Props currently have a new release in test http://www.propellerheads.se/betatest/sign-up/index.cfm

What version of windows 8 do you have? I have heard that the pro version doesn't have this issue.

They know about this problem and a fix will be coming very soon. I have Windows 8 Pro with an AMD and it works. No extra processes, steps, etc.

Install and go.
