Windows 8?
After playing dungeon defenders on my mac throughought the entire power outage of sandy, I'vs started to LOVE dungeon defenders; but when I tried to start it on my new windows 8 computer, It didnt work! Is it not compatible or is there a solution or something? I'm impatient, so I can't relly wait for it to be windows 8 compatible, and i would go back to my mac and play, but now that I'm used to my NEW computer, I just CAN'T go back to mac. PLEASE HELP!!!!

for those of you who may need more info, it says vcredist x86 failed to install.

as far as i know dungeon defenders has not been verified to run perfectly on the new windows operating system.

it may work and then again it may not.

try running it as a admin, or changing the compatability to windows 7 if you have these options, sorry i dont use windows 8 so i am unfamiliar with it.

your best bet is to ask in the DD forums:
http://forums.trendyent.com/forumdisplay.php?21-PC-Mac-Tech-Support-amp-Bug-Reports

though i doubt they will be able to help you as of yet

are you having trouble installing the actual game?

as for vcredist x86 you can google it to find out more about it, have you tried manually installing this?


i think the easiest solution though is to go back to your mac and play until they make DD compatible with windows 8

I know this a few months late, but I can't seem to make Dungeon Defenders work on Windows 8. Did anyone find an alternative solution?
