I have several ANSI NSIS built installers that I am trying to get ready for Windows 8.
I have had no luck running these on Windows 8, unless I set the compatibly mode to windows 7 in the setup.exe properties. I tried both 32/64 bit and the results are the same.
I have even hacked the Setup.exe to include the latest (at least that I can find) compatibility GUID, overwriting the vista value.
This seems to make no difference, the installers simply will not run without explicitly changing the properties compatibility mode.
Has anyone had any luck running NSIS installers under Windows 8?
Do you know what the problem might be?
