Does WB 8 support 8.1?

Yes, WB8 supports 8.1. There's a few little glitches, but by and large it's happy. We'll tweak next month.

OK, I can't currently use WB 8 on Windows 8 due to a conflict with Display Fusion and taskbars. I can use Beta 7.98 though. I hope this is addressed next month, as well.

I'm using WB 8 on 8.1 Preview with Display Fusion (v.50.1) and it's 95% working - couple of glitches but nothing I can't work around.

Interesting anomaly - (at least with my system) run WFX BETA at the same time running DS8 and gets the following:

"Unable to play dream unable to start DirectX on your machine. Please try rebooting and if is this continues try updating your video drivers"

Note: DirectX is actually running when I get this message. It is not enough to shut down WFX B- I need to reboot to choose individual dreams in DS8.

Just something to consider as you tweak the program.
