    As per the subject line - just got a new laptop with Win 8 (yuch), and tried to install the latest version of Classic Shell, but no luck. Can't even find any reference to this error with Classic Shell on here or with Google.... stumped!

    Is it possible you are running on Windows RT? That's exactly the message you would get because Windows RT is not supported. See attached image.

    If you are not using RT, then try downloading again. Sometimes the download can get corrupted.

    I had the same issue with an update today (I was already running Classic Shell 3.6.4 on Windows 8, and was installing version 3.6.5). Re-downloading resolved the issue.

    Thanks guys, will try downloading again, as it's definitely Windows 8 it's running, not RT.
