Doesn't work properly on 8.1. This was true of the Preview, but now it's on full release it's still not working properly at all. I hate this damn OS!

If you have a hard copy you can use the cd key to get a steam version too.

I'm not having any issues with it... Strange, I'm using W8.1,,, I'm running in windowed mode if it helps?

Ok I can see why it's happening: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-10-21-windows-8-1-causing-mouse-lag-that-badly-affects-games

I've actually taken the drastic decision to reinstall Windows 7, but that's also because I'm hating almost every aspect of Windows 8.1 so I'm betteroff anyway!

Ahh, maybe that does help. I woulodn't want to play in Windowed mode though (I'm so used to dual-screen now) but thanks for the suggestion.

I had the same problem recently with the same message. I went into my control panel and installed some important updated and now it works great. don't know if this will work for everyone but thought I should mention it.

i use win 8.1 and used 8 before, never had this problem
(i don't play via Steam but FAF, not sure if that's the reason)

I never hand problems running it on either windows 7 or 8

I know it's drastic, but I reinstalled Windows 8.1 and now it works fine. I'm not sure if it was an update I missed, but it works perfectly now. I may as well not own a PC if I can't play Supreme Commander, so this was a big deal! ;-)
