I tried to get Paint shop pro X2 to work with win 8 pro.
It loaded but would not run. Tried the usual recommended work rounds but the OS reported “incompatible” .
Then I removed all bits of PSPx2 that I could find and reloaded it on a clean newly reformatted empty hard drive - works perfect no problems at all.
I mention it here as the solution may work with other “incompatible” programs.
