"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you try V2015?  The system requirements for V2015 include Windows 8.

Try ignoring the FTM shortcut and launching the program directly from its location on your drive,  So click on the icon at

C:\Program Files (x86)\Family Tree Maker 2014\FTM.exe
C:\Program Files\Family Tree Maker 2014\FTM.exe

(Depending on which version of 8,1 you're running)

You may get another permissions pop-up error ""You don't currently have permission to access this folder" when you do this  - if so press "Continue"
