    Visual novel only works in windows 7

    Hey guys, I've been running into a peculiar issue recently. A visual novel I recently got does not work at all on my windows 8 computer, it says that a dvd must be inserted even though the .exe is cracked. Strangely the exact same game runs perfectly fine on my windows 7 computer. This leads me to believe that windows 8 is blocking the verification exe from running but I have absolutely no idea on how I would go about fixing this. Was wondering if anyone here had ran into a similar issue and how it can be fixed.

    What's the name of game you are referring?
    Have you tried changing Compatiblity mode?
    Windows 8 kinda suck so try Dual booting or VM's
    Some games have custom Windows 8 patches for it to work.

    Did already several time mentioned, but I'll then again say: Win8 is still shit for VN playing, stay further at Win7 - there standing you on safely side, okay?

    I use Oracle VM. I'm not familiar with other VM's but this one is pretty easy to setup.
