MS Streets & Trips 2013 for Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought the 2013 disk from Newegg and the program runs with Windows 7, but it doesn't 

    with my new Windows 8 (64 bit).  Do others have this problem and when will MS fix it?  Surely they know about Windows 8!!!

  • I got the 2013 working with Windows 8 by reinstalling the driver that goes with the device that picks up satellite signals.  The driver connected the device to the comm port, and I then configured Streets and Trips to go to that comm port for its information.  For my device, it was comm port 3.

  • I had the same problem and was able to solve it as follows. Go into Control Panel/System & Security/Windows Firewall. Enter the section labelled - Allow an AP through windows firewall. I noticed that Streets & Trips was not listed as an allowed AP. Browse for Streets & Trips and add as an allowed AP. Exit & restart your computer to allow the Windows update. It should then work fine (did for me anyway). Good luck.
