Cisco Configuration Professional can't get running on Windows 8

Cisco Configuration Professional v2.7 build 1304151010

IE v10

I can't get this program running on my laptop after installing

I will assume that I need to customize settings?

Go with an earlier version of Java.  I have nothing but problems with different versions of CCP, ASDM, etc and different versions of Java.  It's a nightmare.

Also, make sure your device cert and crypto keys use at least a 1024-bit key.  IE10 doesn't support 512-bit keys.
It probably needs administrator privileges.  Have you tried looking here?

Please explain what is happening instead. Also tell us if Cisco wrote somewhere that it is fully compatible with 8 or else.

What version are you trying to install?

I tested Version 2.7 on Windows 8 and it installs and works fine. I didn't bother testing other versions. Log on to your Cisco page and download version 2.7

It requires java plugin and flash player by the way

when I run the program, I don't get an error, the program loads up
when I try to enter in a new IP address, username and password, it won't let me enter anything. it appears to be a java issue but I can't tell for sure.
