Windoz 8 Starry Night Special Edit.
      #5591472 - 12/27/12 05:02 PM

I got a new laptop that was on sale, Asus X55U 4gig ram.
First, the short and frustrating time to figure out the new system has made me dispize windows 8.
It wont run My Logitech 9000 software, just the drivers. Now Im trying to install Starry Night Special edition and it sticks at "Copying new files".
Their was an update file on their website and I have installed it, other then that have had no luck with it. the ASCOM files are loaded and icon on the desktop but no listing in their "APP" section.

Help
