                  All kidding aside, you might make note of this deal for the guys out there buying laptops. Although I haven't tried it, it sounds to me like the new Surface tablets/laptops or similar that run the Windows 8 RT version probably are not capable of running MSD software.

                  You would need to get a Full Windows 8 version (not RT) and run it in Desktop mode I would assume to make it work. That said I'm waiting to update the race car's laptop until you guys test this...

                  Thanks, John

                      Yes, MSDView will work ok on Windows 8, people are running it just fine.
