some douchebag stole my KF (and my MIFI, my only source of my own wifi) I could not stand the thought of being without my KFire for all of four hours before I drove to Walmart with $200 in pocket change (they made me use the CoinStar machine and I bought this with a CoinStar receipt FTW) and purchased a new KF
The laptop I had with me was running Windows 8 dev and Linux Mint and neither system could recognize the KF drivers. All while on a really crappy hotel network. I spent all of 5 hours of just beating up the driver system, before I gave up and drove 100 miles to my office, where my machine runs Win7.
On that Windows 7 system it couldnt have been easier - All drivers installed automatically, I installed KFU 9.5 and everthing worked just fine, no problems.
I know its not because of Windows 8 or 7 it does not matter -- There was just something obfuscated with the KF drivers and the options are to 1. wipe and reinstall your entire windows system, or 2. find a new computer to try it on.
THE POINT OF THIS POST: If **** doesnt work on one machine... find another machine.
