Hi, I tried Kaspersky Internet Security & Anti-Virus 2013 on my brand new PC which runs on windows 8, however the instalation fails with the below error
Failed...................Current operating system is not supported" though it's pack says 'ready for windows 8'.
Before starting the installation I removed an trail version of Mcafee installed on the system,
you can say I lobby for Kaspersky when I am asked which is best anti virus to use, but i feel let down with the recent turn of events.
I purchased this single PC package by paying almost 800 RS.
Hope you can help me with the above mentioned query at the earliest

Some 2013 discs were produced before the build Lucian instructs you to download. The license key can be used with the newer download version so in that sense the product you purchased can still be used with Windows 8. When you run the installer on the original disc, does it prompt you to download the newer version at all?
