Does it work with windows 8? I tried copying the folder and installing but it is not working. I would like to finish this work unit.

I tried it a month ago on my 9800 GX2 and it worked like a charm. I just used the tracker program.

It worked with the Customer Preview but don't know if it works with Release Preview.

Steps to get it to work:
Download 7.1.52 client from Stanford
After download complete, Right Click on file & select "Run as Administrator".
After installation & setup is complete, the program must be "Run as Administrator" every time... easiest way to do that is just pin it to the taskbar on the desktop.
Did not work for me when selecting "start with Windows" even after setting file properties to "Run as Administrator", had to launch from desktop or taskbar.

But that was in Customer Preview version, not current version which was so problematic, I didn't even bother to try setting up FAH...

Thanks it is working now. I think I have windows 8 figured out for now. There are some really stupid things like figuring out how to shut it down. The new user is at such a loss when he first boots up that not messing with it is the first thing that comes to mind.
