Yes, I believe we still have a few customers still using that version with Windows 8 ( not windows 8 RT- which is not compatible). However, before opening the program for the first time, right click on the FW Office icon from the desktop and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility Tab. Check only the one box called Run this program as an Administrator near the bottom of that screen. Click Apply and OK. Restart Windows. Then you should be able to open the program and complete the automatic registration. Let me know if this does not help.
