Install Tascam US-122 on Windows 8

- Download the latest Vista drivers from http://www.tascam.com/products/us-122;9,15,68,19.html;
- Extract the .exe file from the package;
- Right click on the extracted exe file, select properties;
- Go to the compatibility tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the dropdown box underneath select "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" (any Vista selection will probably work but this is the one that did it for me);
- Choose OK to save the settings
- Run the installer by double clicking on it and install as normal

Been struggling to connect to my new laptop. Followed your instructions and worked perfectly. Is it possible to connect two similar devises to one laptop to enable recording four tracks simultaneously?
