Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Please review the Desktop Software requirements and compatibility page:

As you can see, the current version of the Desktop Software is not listed as compatible with Win8...hence, your older version likewise would not be.

 

There are reports of folks getting the current version to function via Win8, but I do not recall if any have done what you desire...you might want to search this board for all threads related to Win8 and see if any have previously discussed what you are attempting.

 

Good luck!
