I had an opportunity to load up Summation 3.0 with Windows 8 and it installed without any problems whatsoever. No additional support or anything was required and it is working just fine. However, there is one important procedure to undertake to make Summation work properly, and this is essentially the same procedure to make Summation work properly with Windows 7 as well.
If the procedure is not done, what will happen is some aspects of Summation will get grayed out. It is an issue involving compatibility with later versions of Windows because Summation 3.x was released before the new Windows 7 & 8 systems were launched. Anyway, it is a simple fix.
Close Summation if it is open. After installation of Summation iBlaze on a Windows 8 or Windows 7 PC, right click on the Summation icon on the Desktop, select Troubleshoot Compatibility, and let Windows fix an issue with the sw32.exe file by selecting “Try Recommended Settings”. Once Windows has gone through its procedure, re-start Summation. This will fix the grayed out issues with the Case Explorer and the Case Open windows and all aspects of Summation should work fine afterwards.
