Hello, I recently installed Metastock 11 on Windows 8 (bootcamp), and I've encountered an issue with my mouse. While the mouse functions properly on the file menu and side bar menus, it behaves oddly when I try to drag a line or place it on the chat. It resists and displays a plus sign. I'm seeking assistance to resolve this problem. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.

Hello,

I believe that issue had to do with certain Video Cards and the use of the Windows Aero Theme. You can try disabling this while running MetaStock by performing the following:

  1. Right-click on the MetaStock shortcut and choose Properties
  2. Click the Compatibility tab
  3. Place a checkmark next to "Disable visual themes"
  4. Place a checkmark next to "Disable desktop composition"
  5. Click OK
  6. Launch MetaStock and see if the problem persists

Note that this will change the look of Windows while you are running MetaStock, and when you close MetaStock, Windows will revert back to its default view.
