askSam is a really useful software, which works like a free form database aimed at regular users rather than programmers. And now some have started complaining that it doesn’t work in Windows 8.1. Read below for more details.

According to recent posts on the Microsoft support forums, some users have been complaining that the askSam software isn’t working as it should in Windows 8.1, after there have been no problems whatsoever with Windows 8, 7, Vista and even Windows XP. We’re thus reaching out to askSam to let us know whether they have not made the software Windows 8.1 ready. Here’s what the affected user is saying:

The askSam free form database worked perfectly with Windows XP, Vista and, as far as I can recall, Windows 8. However it almost always freezes when I try to access an existing database now that I’m running 8.1. I’m left wondering whether it’s compatible with Windows 8.1 or whether I have some other issue. Any ideas, please?

askSam seems to have compatibility issues with Windwos 8.1

For those who don’t know what askSam is all about, here’s a short description of the software:

askSam is a database designed for users rather than programmers. Once your information is in askSam, you’re ready to search. Not only can you search on the contents of fields, but you can search on free-form text. askSam offers a wider variety of searches than any other database program and some of the fastest and most powerful searches you’ll find anywhere.

If you have been experiencing similar problems, let us know by leaving your comment below, so this way we will be able to help those who have problems. Also, if it doesn’t work, you can try to run it in compatibility mode with a previous Windows version, as that does the trick in many situations.
