But Windows 7 and Windows 8 are Microsoft's right ? W7 is still new ! So how could W8 appear ? Never heard of W8 though

I tried to install the x64 ultimate pack on OPs post
I read the Readme.txt and set it to never notify in user account settings, etc
Nothing happened and I had a shell32.dll not found error

What did I do wrong while trying to install the pack?
