autodata for windows for windows 8
GREAT NEWS EVERYONE.......
Autodata 3.38 WILL run on windows 8.
All you have to do is install as windows 7.
Go to microsoft website or paste Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 into any search engine.
download vcredist_x64.exe for 64 bit version or
download vcredist_x86.exe for 32 bit vesrion.
install which ever version your machine is.
open start menu in windows 8 and under the search option search for command prompt.
type “cd c:\adcda2” and then "regsvr32 ChilkatCrypt2.dll" press enter.
re install autodata which will overite existing files.
if a shortcut hasn't been made on your desktop copy the one in windows ~adcda2 and paste it to your desktop.
right click on this icon goto properties and under compatibility mode run this program as windows 7.
it worked for me................. good luck.
