Thanks Christopher for your kind reply,


Actually, virtualbox or alternative OS would be my last resort in case I
could not solve this issue. I would prefer to somehow solve this issue under
Windows8 x64 to keep my system simple and take maximum advantage of updated

Do you have any experience with virtual machines?  You could run it on a
stable earlier version of Windows that you previous used before upgrading.
Virtualbox and Linux would completely free and you could probably be up and
running in less than an hour.


Just a thought,

I have recently upgraded my computer to Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and after this
upgrade I can't run Athena and Artemis. The problem symptoms are:


1-      If I use Demeter version 0.9.13, Athena opens but when I try to open
previously saved file, Athena simply crashes without showing any error.
Artemis also shows similar behavior.

2-      By using latest build Demeter 0.9.19, Athena behavior is slightly
different it opens the files and show the plot. But pressing the E,k,R
buttons does not change the plot. Artemis still crashes by opening any
project file without any error.


I have tried following things, installed in compatibility mode of Windows7.
Athena worked fine only once after installing in compatibility mode.

Installed in different drives but situations remains the same. Tried to "run
as Admin" but no improvement.

Installed Demeter on three different computers running Windows 8.1 x64 but
similar behavior is received.


Kindly suggest me some work around because I have to use Demeter on almost
daily basis. I have attached log file obtained from Demeter 0.9.13 running
under Window 8.1 x64.
