Windows 8.1 problem with final draft 8

I downloaded Windows 8.1 and now I can't PDF scripts from FINAL DRAFT 8. Does anyone out there have a fix for it. Thanks.

Windows 8 has a lot of issues. I would suggest you get Windows 7 64 bit Professional. It is the best OS on Windows I have experienced. I can't stand Windows 8 personally and I have tried it out on a few friend's computers.

Agreed, Windows 8 is the Vista of the 21st Century. I have it on my laptop and want to purge every time I use it. My laptop doesn't get enough love. To add, I had problems generating PDFs on FD8 under Win8. Once I upgraded to FD9, it started working again. I'm not recommending you upgrade FD. WIndows 8 is a problem child of MS, so perhaps Win7 is a better choice to switching to that FD9.

Not sure if this helps, I also had problemsin windows 8, you might need another pdf-maker. I have described the process in a blog:
