Nothing unusual that I know of. I just installed Windows 8 recently, and tried to activate the trial on my admin account. Like I said, it says "starting trial", but nothing happens. However, when I switch over to my other account on the machine, Start8 is activated there without me having to do anything. I understand that it should work across my machine, that's why I'm baffled at what could be causing this. I've tried uninstalling Start8, and deleting my secondary account from the machine, then reinstalling Start8, but still nothing. I'm not sure why, but it's just not activating on my admin account. I make all installations or changes through my admin account. I haven't messed around with any settings really, or installed much because I just started using Windows 8 two days ago. I would really like to get this working because the metro interface is really slowing down productivity and kills multitasking.
