    When I run the prompts the box with the name/ number appears and vanishes so fast that I have to click with my fingers already on the buttons for a screenshot, and even then sometimes I wasn’t fast enough. It took me three tries for the serial number.
    Is this just a problem with Windows 8, or am I doing something wrong?

    It shouldn’t be a problem. Its working fine on my Windows 8.1 too.
