As there's no Windows 8 installer, I installed the Windows 7 version in Windows 7 compatibility mode successfully. (Booted with Driver Signature Enforcement disabled because I'm on 64-bit.) However, launching the configuration application immediately crashes before opening. Is there a solution? I already tried the Vista installer. I may have had a similar issue on Windows 7.
If you have the Windows 7 "compatibility" version installed on Windows 8 and notice the software fails to launch, following these steps. First uninstall the Razer audio card from Programs and Features (
appwiz.cpl). Then uninstall the device and select to delete driver files from Device Manager (
devmgmt.msc). (This may be optional, I haven't tested.)
If you're on 64-bit Windows, disable driver signature enforcement.
Install the Vista version in Vista compatibility mode so that the installer will run. The software should now work correctly. If it still fails to launch you may wish to verify the Razer Barracuda AC-1 Gaming Audio Card folder is properly deleted from Program Files when uninstalling.
Found a better solution, well, actually I did not, after installed windows 8.1, I found in the tray icon the software, then I looked it up.
Everything works fine, the only thing missing is that "Distance" feature, or maybe it is in there too and I have not found it, anyway everything works.
Plus it does not have that switch resolution bug that each version of the razer control panel had.
