Eviews 5 with Windows 8?

Postby jjjungle » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:04 pm

I just got a new laptop that has Windows 8.

I have an old version of Eviews, version 5.

I tried installing Eviews5 onto the laptop. It installed ok but won't run. Will it work with Windows 8?

Thanks

Not sure if we've tried it, but I'd be surprised if it didn't work.

I'm having the same problem with my computer. Is there some kind of driver missing or something?

Having the same problem - I installed Eviews 5 on a Windows 8 machine. Install worked fine and icon appears on desktop, but programme won't start/open. Contacted Eviews support and was told "There are no known issues, and I have EViews 3,4,5,6,7 and 8 running on Windows 8 x64." Has anyone solved this?

It appears as though sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

It is true - I have EViews 3-8 installed on my current Win 8 x64, but it certainly looks as though some people can't get it to run.

Since EViews 5 was released over a decade before Windows 8, it isn't particularly surprising.

Do you consider it Eviews' responsibility? At very least you should offer a free upgrade to a version that does run on Windows 8. I can't get mine to run, either.

I don't believe there is a responsibility to ensure that all versions of EViews will run on all PCs for ever more, no.

We do have a responsibility to ensure the current version of EViews will run on the current platforms we say it is supported on.

I wonder if this thread has been closed already as I'm experiencing the same kind of problem--Eviews 5 on Windows 8. Any patch or suggestion on how to address this issue?

Thanks
