Lightscribe Software complains that Windows 8 Pro "operating system is not adequate for running Lightscribe"!? This is important software for labelling CDs and DVDs Microsoft!

When trying to install either template or simple labeler the following error message is given: "operating system is not adequate for running Lightscribe"

I would be most gratefull if Microsoft would fix Windows 8
