  • It will help me a lot. I am planning to install Windows 8 in my computer. xD

  • Well, it's my first time that I need to read e-book to explore the Windows operating system :P

  • Hello,

    For everyone who downloaded the demo version of Fruit Ninja in Windows 8 Release Preview, here is how you can convert it into the full version and save 4.99 $:
    1. Make sure you are signed in with a Microsoft account into Windows.
    2. Uninstall Fruit Ninja.
    3. Open ”Store”, right click a blank area, choose ”My apps” and then from the drop-down list choose ”Apps which are not installed on this PC”. Then click on Fruit Ninja and click on Install. It will install easily and will make you save 4.99 bucks, the price of Fruit Ninja now!

    Do not try to update the app because it will give you some weird error code (0x...) saying it cannot update the app and corrupting it (either you will not see it on the Start Screen or it will not start).

    I report it has worked for me, so, please VG, can you share this tip to everyone?

    Do this immediatly as you never know when Microsoft is going to fix this glitch. I say it is a glitch because that version was a demo since Windows Store contained only free apps by default.


  • Hi VG,
    Is there any diffrence Between Windows 8 Final (Launched on 26th Oct) and Windows 8 RTM (90 day Trial), Which you had posted about ?????

  • VG

    ^^ Both are same just the versions are different. 90-day trial was Enterprise edition and if you purchase Windows 8, it'll Windows 8 Pro.

  • Thanks a lot for when I make the leap to Win 8 Pro. Still happy w/ Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Waiting to see if more patch files ahead and can boot right to desktop for 24" monitor. Not about to get such a size touchscreen. Beginning to feel ol that legacy prgs will run ok on 8 which was main worry. Lost lot when went to 7 back then and took s/w guys awhile to update them.
    Have to be sure LastPass works on 8 and hopefully IE 10 tho could prob use IE 9 until updated.
