Windows 8 Consumer Preview (the beta) not compatible with SL viewer

There was an earlier release version of Windows 8. Most of the apps I tested on it ran just fine. Including Second Life. I'll try out this new preview version as soon as I can set up a machine to install it on.

My lasting memory of Windows 8 was that of being underwhelmed by the metro interface and using the registry tweak to force it to default back to the 'legacy' start menu.

I installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview last night and haven't found any viewers that won't run; Exodus, Zen, Phoenix, Firestorm, Dolphin, LL's V3, LL's Development (Snowstorm). They all took a while (30-45 seconds) at the "initializing texture cache" stage of starting the first time I ran each one but they all start like they did on Win 7 now that I've had each one up and running.
