Subject: Audio Studio 8.0 not extracting CDs on Windows 8.1

Hi guys

I recently upgraded my computer and it is running Windows 8.1. I have reinstalled Sound Forge 8.0 on my computer. I can use all features except for the "Extract Audio From CD". It is not reading the disc and whenever I click on the feature, this message pops up;

"You are currently logged on to this computer without system administrator privileges. Some features of this program may not be available to you."

I have gone through the settings on my computer and my account is the administrator.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

Thank you

Daniel

Have you tried creating a new administrator account and doing said task in new account?

Right-click the icon and choose "Run as administrator". That should give you all options. You can also right-click the icon and choose Properties and check the box to always run as Administrator. Keep in mind that SFAS 8.0 was not certified for Windows 7 let alone 8.x.
