Try to go from the main menu by clicking on the version number in the upper right corner.

SABOW dont support Win8 officially and not tested on it.

If the game is running and there is update no - maybe you do not have sufficient access rights (as administrator)?

Have you tried applying compatibility settings for your game? Try the troubleshoot compatibility option and apply the recommended compatibility. Then try running the update again user Admin rights.

Can you confirm if this now works on Windows 8?

I am planning to get a new computer and Windows 8 will be coming as standard on it so I'd like to know in advance if I should be looking for Windows 7 instead...Or a work-around if possible..

Hey all - Thanks for the confirmation, it'll be one of a handful of games I play so I want to make sure it'll do the trick. wink
