The Win 8 tab isnt playin ball - so- posing the Q here

One of my chums has sported 70 quid on a W8 upgrade for his XP Netbook.

He now finds that many esisting programs such as Adobe reader and othrs will not run . I have offered to take a look see .

But I am now out of the Windows loop since XP and moved to another platform. So any perticular issue Ishould be aware of???

Adobe reader works fine on W8 but a new download and install is required. There is a compatibility mode in W8 to allow some older programs to run. Has he installed all of the W8 drivers?
