    Default help installing Beyond on windows 8

    wondering if anybody installing Beyond update software, has encountered this problem.

    when I click on the Beyond 660 software update, on a PC windows 8,
    I get a screen that says: This APP cant run on your PC "to find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher"

    I don't get it, I already am running Beyond on this computer, but its not letting me install anything now, in regards to Beyond,
    ive tried older versions also, same error screen.

    any ideas??

    thanks,

    I have windows 8. Installed 660 with no issues..

    Try running the installer as admin (right click, properties)

    thanks for your input, I already tried running the update as admin. and also tried changing the compatability setting to different windows (windows 7, xp, vista),
    still getting that error message.
    the only difference I see in the versions of beyond that will install, is the file sizes.
    the older beyond updates are 140kb, will install
    the newer beyond updates that wont install are 20-24kb sizes .....

    any other ideas?

    thanks for your help JD3

    one other thing I just noticed,
    on the versions that will install, when I click on the properties tab,
    there is an extra tap, for "digital signature"
    on the versions that will not install, that tab is missing....

    thanks!!

    I'd say needs to be re-downloaded. 24kb is probably corrupt file. It's defintaley not the full file size. (if you've not worked it out already)

    I've had problems with Beyond and Windows 8.1 . Just a question... Is it a Dell machine?

    In case it helps, my Beyond 660 setup executable is 151 MB (159,051,480 bytes). Yours should be exactly the same, unless they're personalizing binaries, which I don't think they are.

    ^ mine as well. Sounds like you have an incomplete/failed download. Did you get it directly from pango website?

    the older beyond updates are 140kb, will install
    the newer beyond updates that wont install are 20-24kb sizes .....
    It sound like you may be getting the file sizes mixed up, the full installation package for Beyond is about 140Mb and the update file is about 20-24Mb and these are correct

    It sounds like you are not extracting the zip file

    If you have the update file just extract the file (recommend using 7zip), this should give you a single .exe file that you just copy into the Beyond folder (no installation just copy)

    However, I would recommend going to Pango site and getting the full update package and re-installing the whole thing to bring it all up to date as the update only update the exe file and nothing else
