Thread: Windows 8 Release Preview

  1. #1

    Windows 8 Release Preview

    I've just downloaded Windows 8 Release Preview which was released this morning and installed it in Virtualbox to test if Silkroad works.
    And yes it takes a while to start Silkroad but that should be because I'm running it virtually but then it simply starts and actually does work on Windows 8 Release Preview.
    And mBot works as well, can't test the botting since I don't have a active mBot account atm, but both mBot and Silkroad didn't even start in the previous version of Windows 8 so I guess quite much everything should work.

    i tried to run sro alone in virtualbox myself today, however i cannot get sro_client to start; it will instantly close again.

    i ran win8 x64 release preview.
    compatibility didn't help either.
    virtualbox guest additions are installed.

    any tricks you did, to get it up and running?

    Did you install virtualbox guest additions in safe mode?
    Only way to install the 3d graphics stuff is in safe mode.

    But btw, I'm using Windows 8 RP on my main pc now instead of Windows 7 and it runs great.
    The shortcut stuff still works and simply everything else with mBot and Silkroad.

    Thx for the 2012 thread bump.
    W8 is more than useful, it's a great OS and both W8.1 and W7 will get a free upgrade to W10 so nobody has any reason to complain ^^

    Dude this topic is from 2012 before Windows 8 released, I've been using Windows 10 since the release over 2 weeks ago.
