So you want to install the Windows PC version of eWallet® 7 or 8 on Windows 8 -- no problem!

For eWallet 7.5 and higher, you don't need to do anything other than just install eWallet.

eWallet 7.0 through 7.4 for Windows PC does require a Microsoft technology called .NET 3.5, which by default is not turned on for Windows 8. No worries though, it's easy to turn on:

  1. On your Windows 8 device desktop, go to Settings->Control Panel->Programs->Turn Windows Features on or off

    Windows Control Panel

    Windows Programs and Features

  2. Check the box that says .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)

    .NET 3.5 turned off

    After selecting the option, you should see this:

    .NET 3.5 turned on

  3. Press OK

You might be prompted to let Windows 8 download some files from the Internet (if it doesn't already have them); go ahead and let it download the files.

Once you've let Windows turn on support for .NET 3.5, you'll be able to successfully install eWallet 7.0 - 7.4 for Windows PC.
