Windows 8 and MindManager

Today I ran some tests on MindManager versions on Windows 8 and found that the following versions of MindManager will install with core functionality:

MindManager V4, MindManager 2002, MindManager X5, MindManager 6, MindManager Pro 7, MindManager 8, MindManager 9 and MindManager 2012.

The above versions were tested on a clean install of Windows 8 RTM and the only action prior to installing the first version in the list, (they were installed chronologically), was to download and install .Net 3.5 framework from Microsofts website.

I thought this information might be of use to some users.

Hi Nigel, Thanks for doing this.

I can confirm that Mindjet 11 works on Windows 8 as well. Very fast with an SSD on an HP 2740p.

Did you install Mindjet 11? I found some odd things not working when I installed it on top off MindManager 2012 in Windows 7 e.g. insert linked map.

Mindjet 9 works sometimes with Win 8...other times it opens and then says it has stopped working and shuts down...any thoughts or ideas?

If Nigel tested it, and it works fine, there must be something wrong with Rogers installation. Advice: revert to a clean installation, to solve the problem.
