Default Windows 8

I've installed windows 8 and now Vegas will load but the graphics are all distorted and then the game freezes up and goes black. Anyone have any clues on a update for this.

You need to first install the Vista/Win 7/8 launcher, and then install the Vegas games.

Cricket, I know when I installed on my vista, and installed my sisters games on her Win7 - all you have to do is make sure you install Gold Rush or Ghost Town FIRST, before installing any other vegas game or dl. These games have the patch for the newer OS written into them. You'll have to uninstall all the vegas games and start over, but just installing in the right order will save alot of headache.

I know for certain this works with vista and Win7 - perhaps Linda can tell us if she knows if it works for the new Win8?
