A LOT of drivers and programs that work perfectly fine don't work in Windows 8. Especially custom and third party drivers like this.

Also the drivers usually need to be online to work, these are an offline version. The drivers site has been down a lot lately, and when it does you can't access the control panel.

A bit of a paradox.
