I ran the new version of windows 8 release preview (5/31/2012) and installed the latest snagit version (trial downloaded). It ran once, then crashed. I assume it is easy for your to repro. if not, please contact me at my web: http://peterkellner.net/contact

This morning we released an update to Snagit. Snagit 11.1 is now available as a free upgrade. To get the update go to Help > Check for Upgrade.



This latest version of Snagit runs on the new Windows 8 operating system. Snagit will operate on touch-screens, but has not been optimized for Windows 8 touch-screen gestures. Applications and utilities within the Start screen lose focus when you click away or move the cursor on the screen. To improve users’ experience, we recommend setting up and using hotkeys.

To learn how to use Snagit’s hotkeys to capture Windows 8 new interface applications, view the tutorial here:
