Installation of Webworks Gold SDK fails on Windows 8

I don't know why I even attempted this, but here are screenshots of the error messages I am getting upon installation. 

Screen 1   

 

I am not sure if this is a Java related issue or something with Webworks SDK or is it even supported on Windows 8?

You can get this to install although it's not supported I believe.

Right click on the installer - under compatability change the compatability version to Windows 7.

 

Re-run the installer and it will install sucessfully. The toolkit itself seems to work under Windows 8, I believe it is just a setup issue.

pure installer issue

Consider building the open source repo -

Re: Installation of Webworks Gold SDK fails on Windows 8

This works. Thank you. I was trying compatibility mode suggested by Windows 8 (i.e Windows XP SP3)
