Certain apps not displaying properly on windows 8

Some apps such as patches, keygens and specially YAMB have issues displaying the interface properly. Buttons are missing and text is all over the place overlapping the buttons and each other. In short everything is a mess on windows 8. Does anyone have a solution. In the pics below, u can see the missing buttons.

  1. Hi
    You can try to run the app with Old Windows emulation - compatibility mode
    Right click on the program -> Compatibility tab -> Run this program tick -> from the drop down select older OS f.e. WinXP

    This can work in some scenarios but not all :)

    I obviously tried that as anyone would try that first...doesn't work..

    It's already on the lowest UAC setting....is this a widespread windows 8 issue or only for me??

    If you're using windows 8, can u try running YAMB 2.1.0 and tell me if it runs fine??

    Thanks
