Windows 8 issues


Installed 64 bit version of MapWindow on 64 bit Windows 8 (complete install).
On startup I get a Windows generated error message saying that the program failed to start.
Try going in to compatability mode for Vista, and also tried running as Administrator. Same problem both times.

Next, tried installing 32 bit version on the same PC (didn't uninstall 64 bit version first).
MapWindow starts OK.
Tried setting the prohection, either for the project or for a loaded raster file, and get the error message "Failed to initialise the selected projection" in both cases - same result if trying various projections
