Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant reports an issue

Some customers reported that the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant shows our software as
“Not compatible, Update available”

This is not true. The reports are fully based on users testing software on the Windows 8 betas. These betas did cause problems with our software, so the Assistant may report incompatibilities…

Not to worry: The latest versions of Movie, Book, Music, Comic and Game Collector are fully Windows 8 compatible.

You can ignore that.

Should you run into any problems with the software or have other questions, as usual:
