OVI Suite for N8 not working with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Hello

 

I am not able to connect my N8 to OVI Suite since I installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview operating system. My USB port is working fine as I am able to charge and connect in media transfer mode. It just doesn't work when the OVI suite mode is enabled.

 

Can somebody tell me how I can work around this please. I use OVI suite a lot as I do most of my messaging through the PC. When will Nokia release a new edition of the OVI Suite that will work well with Windows 8.

 

On once ocassion, I was able to reinstall OVI suite by right clicking and selecting Windows 7 in compatibility settings and by running the program as administrator. However, even that doesn't seem to be working anymore.

 

Any help please?

No point in speculating but tends to follow the Japanese kanban technique, in that not likely to appear until Windows 8 actually on sale.

Your reply makes sense. However, with millions of people downloading the Consumer Preview...it would have been nice if Nokia had rolled out a patch or something.
