Win 8 Gbridge

Windows 8
I recently transferred to a new laptop using Windows 8. I have moved everything and sorted out the new screens with one exception. I cannot get Gbridge installed and since that is the heart of my client support system, I cannot fully transfer to the new computer without it. The issue appears to be with Windows 8 security and the installation of the Gbridge VPN. Any and all help will be immensely appreciated. Jim

    There are apparent solutions that a Google search brings up. No one but you will know which one works for you since people have all kinds of software mixes and configuration settings. You could try the third comment in this thread for example. -- Tom

    Michael, you found a google response i didnt see.  Thanks.  It did not for me work quite the way Tom indicated and because i had to fiddle I cant tell you where it was different other than I could not reach the advanced restart in the fashion described.  In any case getting there and turning on the driver signature override was the key to installation.  And as as bonus after all my searching and playing with Win 8 I learned there were new windows startup settings. :)Thanks now i just have to find out how to approve ur answer.

    I'm having an issue getting Gbridge to install on Windows 8. This was an upgrade from Win7 Pro to Win8 Pro, and the Win7 Pro version had Gbrdige working just fine, it wouldn't work after the upgrade. Subsequently for a number of other issues (now worked out), I did a refresh of Win8 Pro, but still can't get Gbridge to work. Someone here said the answer was located http://www.gbridge.com/forum/showthread.php?p=93646 but when I try that site I get a Forbidden Access error message. Anyone have an idea how to get Gbridge going on Win8 Pro when the error message occurs when Gbridge is attempting to install its driver (when the screen goes black, everything fails and if I try to remove those failed sections via regedit I get a permissions error, and even when I change ownership the permission errors continue. The keys are in HKLM\SYSTEM\CONTROLSET001\ENUM\ROOT\NET000 thru 0007 (each time I retry I get a new sequential registry key that can't be deleted. The driver install error message is that the particular key cannot be uninstalled and then it terminates with a return code and asks me to retry, which results in another instance of what I just described. Help please?

    There is no claim from GBridge that it works on Win 8, though some people have made it work. You'll just have to search for all of the things that have been tried and see if any work for you. There doesn't seem to be any new development by GBridge for a few years, so there might never be a version designed for Win 8. If you get it to work, feel fortunate. The GBridge Forum seems to be taken off-line, so there might be no future help available. -- Tom
