I am now using streets & trips 2011 with my old computer which has windows vista but I am having issues and am planning on buying a new computer with windows 8. Do you thing streets & trips 2011 will work on windows 8. I thought I read something on your site about being able to transfer programs & data from one computer to another. Can you give me more info on this please. Thanks…………..Gerald & Sarah

Transferring data files and folders to Windows 8 is fairly easy. Here is a LINK that explains the process.
Programs present more of a problem. You can manually install programs using original disks or websites. Another option is to purchase a program like PCMover.
I installed the 2013 version on my Win8 computer with no problems. We use Dropbox to insure we use the same data on all our PCs.

As far as I know, the 2011 version works on Win8. I only have experience with the 2013 version, as I said. No problem there.
