Hello all, I wanted to make a truecrypt drive but I cant install it on windows 8x64. Im curious to know how those that had trucrypt partitions are getting around the windows 8 problem after they migrate to 8. I searched on google and many people cant install trucrypt on win8.

Thanks for any info.

Looking into this, TrueCrypt isn't fully supported on Windows 8, but otherwise I've found you can install it. So the question is, are you running into any errors or is the installer just telling you it failed?

When I tried to install it i get and error code 0x0000 or similar then the computer hangs spinning circle and I have to restart. I tried running as administrator and I get the same error.

The only thing I can think of is that TrueCrypt has no support for GPT partitions yet, and Windows 8 requires a GPT partitioned drive.

yup. I had an 64-bit alternative (besides bitlocker) commercial encryption app that worked on GPT partitions and Win8, but can't find the link as my laptop is down until a new AC adapter gets here tomorrow. Just remember the app was from a Scandinavian county.

edit: Found it online.
