Can't start ZWCad+ on windows 8. I installed the Beta version of ZWCad+ into my notebook HP Pavilion dv5, windows 8 system, but nothing happens when I double click the icon.
Does someone knows what could be done to it Work, or, in this version of Windows, ZWCad+ does not Works?

I installed the version 2012 too, and it Works.

thanks

Sir, the beta release has not been tested in Win8 environment and we hope it could work fine in it. Please hold down several days for the result...

Just FYI, for any Windows 7 application, we could always take the following steps to run them. Just take ZWCAD+ or ZW3D for instance:
1) Extract it by 7zip, as the original compressed exe file are stopped by Windows 8 security mechanism

2) run the setup.exe, and click to run it, which might cost you five minutes to finish the installation

3) run ZWCAD+ or ZW3D with Windows 7 compatibility, right-click the program icon and then choose the windows 7 compatibility

4) If any error prompts, run the program with Administrator, generally speaking, it is not necessary to run it with administrator.

Best regards
Colin

Just my 2 cents, the Windows 8 is too new for the moment to test or ensure compatibility

The compatibility with Windows 8 has not been tested for ZWCAD+. But you can try the methods provided above by Colin

We will soon make the move to make sure ZWCAD+ will run on Windows 8, thank you!
