    Thanks Marco -- I did actually look at this briefly when I first started running 
    Windows 8
    but never followed it up - I hoped there was a simpler solution as Im lazy. I 
    quite like
    Windows 8 now that Ive got used to it but so far am not using it for any 
    satellites although
    programs like GUIDE, HEAVENSAT etc run with no trouble. So guess Ill have to do 
    a
    little homework with using a virtual machine - I even got as far as downloading 
    the free
    XP version from the Micorsoft site but appear to have lost interest after that 
    :-))
    
    Cheers
    Greg
