I am trying to use this software (Hawking Hi-Gain Amp Wireless-N ver with Windows 8, but I can no longer get it to work. When I first installed it with Windows 8, I was able to get it to work, but now nothing happens. I click on the application, the icon in the task bar, the executable in the directory, but nothing happens. I uninstalled and then reinstalled, and that didn't change anything. I used this software with no troubles on my previous computer (IBM laptop). I'm guessing that this application is just not compatible with Windows 8.
