    I can't find a way to download the Grantophone Win8 app.
    It's free and I found it here but the link on this page doesn't help me in any way.

    @dentaku: Are you attempting to access it from an RT device? According to the Store, it's only supported under x86.

    I was trying to get it on my desktop computer running Win8 Pro.

    Can someone using Win8 Pro on a regular computer try and install this free app?
    When I clicked on the link all it did was open up the Store App and nothing else happened.

    Grant Kot makes very interesting software so when I finally installed Win8 on my computer Grantohone is one of the first things I wanted to try.

    Works for me. Maybe it's not available in Canada?

    Yeah, that may be the problem. I downloaded it fine on both my Acer w510 and my laptop.

    That's what I was thinking but why would an app that I believe was released WITH the pre-RTM version of Win8 not be available in all areas?

    Well consider Canadian music. Bieber, Dion, Rush. Probably the author thought Canadians can't appreciate music anyway.

    But this is something the Windows Store website doesn't address. There's no attribute for country I can see. There's no "Only available in the United States" anywhere. My Windows Store search doesn't bring it up...

    This is true. I've passed that on, in case it is the case.

    It's a choice of the publisher which markets to target.

    Hi, I just checked it out. I haven't changed the countries list recently so it looks like quite a few have been left out. I will change it with the next update as well as make it available on RT.

    That's good to know Grant.
    Maybe I'll try installing Win8 again when that happens.
    I sure hope you're thinking of adding MIDI in and out support to Grantophone Smiley

    The third time I used my new install of Win8 I took a Windows update, restarted and it never booted up again.
    I have Win8 installed on another harddrive and my motherboard has a boot loader built in (I can choose which drive I want to boot from without using software boot loaders) but whenever I would boot into Win8 then go back to Win7, CHKDSK would find all kinds of errors on both the Win8 and Win7 drive "Deleting index entry", "replacing invalid security id with default ....." etc when the drives are obviously both fine. It's just too dangerous for me to mess with at the moment because if I don't skip the CHKDSK it messes up the files instead of fixing them.
