One last comment. I have my performance settings on all my PCs set for "Best Performance" With this setting you will not get the message "The color scheme has been changed to windows seven basic" when you run Fireworks 8. I would recommend doing this before you install Fireworks 8.
Can you tell me how to change the 'fireworks install file you need to change the properties on to run in XP compatible mode not the program fireworks.exe after install'?????????
