Can't open any files in Windows 8 Metro apps

Coming from Mountain Lion with a hard drive formatted as HFS+ (standard OS X formatting, not sure what it’s named), I decided to try the latest trial of MacDrive 9 Pro with my freshly installed Windows 8. Unfortunately while Windows can see the HDD and all its contents, as soon as I open any file (music, pictures, video) in the default W8 applications such as Xbox Music and Video, Windows throws an error at me. For example, when I open an MP3, I get this error: 0xc1010090 (0xc00d36c3). Pictures show up empty, without an error.

These files do work in the classic W8 desktop environment with apps I downloaded and apps like Paint.

One more thing, I have some Windows setup files on my Mac HDD, and those can not be opened either, because I get a “ShellExecuteEx failed; code 1203″ error. Something about the network path not existing.

What could be going wrong here?

Hello Marc,

We are currently investigating the first issue you reported – we’ve replicated it here, and our development team is looking into the problem now. I’ll update this thread as we have more developments about this.

The second issue involves elevated permissions. Some executable files (but not all) require elevated permissions in Windows Vista and newer (XP was not affected by this). These can’t be run from disks with foreign file systems. While the files can safely be stored on an HFS+ disk, you’ll need to move them to an NTFS disk to execute them.

It appears that this problem also affects FAT32 disks as well. We are still currently investigating a fix at this time.

We’re currently testing a fix for this issue and, barring anything unexpected, this should be fixed in our next release. I don’t have an ETA yet on when that will be available, but we are prioritizing this issue for a release as soon as possible.

Sorry Embarassed
It corrupted my HDD completely. I tried to fix my hard drive disk utility and MacDrive – to no avail.
When I booted in OSX I saw a progress bar and taking about 5 minutes to load OSX (actually such a bar means a serious problem in OSX). On the second day it just shuts down when the bar finished. When I tried to boot in Win8 I got a bluescreen 30 seconds after login screen – every time.
So both systems corrupted thanks to incompatiblity

Hello SevilleOrange,

The bug we’re talking about in this thread is not corruptive (it is read-only by definition). A fix for the original bug reported here will be released soon, but it won’t explain corrupting the Mac disk. The best guess we would have on that is that we have received very wide reports that Boot Camp and Windows 8 are not stable (and are not officially supported yet by Apple). We’d recommend sticking for now to Windows 7 as that is the supported configuration for Boot Camp Macs.

In regards to the Metro App issue, this is in testing and we’ll likely have an ETA on release (if not an actual release) within a few days.

” Hi, I am no computer literate. I have windows 8 on a sony viro laptop, windows 8 and having the same problem and here is what I did…might work on your computer”.

* right click on Local Disk (C:)
* click on
* click on
* click on
* click on the Owner: option
on the window that pops up, “select user or group”, I have <> on the Object Types win.
and your pc name on Locations… win

* click on and select the user to have principal access to your computer..
* click
* click on the next window
* then click to finish
then check if you are able access or run any program.

I guess it basically changing/assigning principal access on your computer …cheers.
