      No specification for CPU/Processor type supported, e.g.

      Windows 8.1 x86

      Windows 8.1 RT ARM

       

      To date I do not see a SN version compiled for Win RT ARM though this is a MS OS for mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets.

      Hi Byron,

      Starry Night does work with Windows 8.1.

      Starry Night does not work with Windows 8 RT.

      Your help on this issue has been priceless.  However I have one silly question.  I know full install takes 11gb and supposed to take forever.  It didn't take long at all (but neither did Solid Works and it is HUGE) and when I look at properties under ..\..\Starry Night it says total 2.8 gb.  The all sky works fine but I can't help wondering if something didn't install.  Any advice or am I just nuts??
