Has anyone got MM7 running on Win 8.1 Pro. The install works fine but throws a runtime error shutdown when started. Do I need an update of .net ?

Try right clicking the mindmanager.exe or the desktop icon and run the Windows 8 compatability settings.

Just tried that but Win 8.1 doesnt seem to have that feature. the runtime error is a C++ issue.

Have you searched this forum and looked at Mindjet Knowledge Base (link on home page of this forum)? It may be a .Net issue. MindManager 7 installing an older version than Windows 8.1 supports.

You should see this when you right click the .exe. Click Troubleshoot compatibility.  MindManager 7 is 7ish versions behind the current version and was built for Windows Vista!

Hi,

You could check this thread. https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet/topics/windows_8_and_mindmanager

These were some early tests I ran prior to Win 8 releasing and I found I could run all the versions from 4 upwards on Windows 8.

I also currently run MindManager 5/6/7/8/9/2012/11/14 on Windows 8 without issue.

If .Net 3.5 is not installed that could be your issue.
