Hi, um, I decided to re-download roblox on my Windows 8 computer, due to the fact that I couldn't open Roblox Studio. I try'd Re-downloading Roblox, Opened the file, and nothing happened. No "Run" Button. Nothing, I just wanted to be able to build again, and play some games with my good friends, but at this time, Now I can't. Considering that Roblox won't download for me. Is there anything i'm doing wrong? What do I need to do so it will download on my Windows 8 pc?

Thankyou.

If you uninstall Studio, you'll need to uninstall the Player as well. Then go to the website and hit Play, Build, or Edit. It will install a desktop shortcut. Don't know exactly what happens on a Windows 8 machine though.

ROBLOX runs fine on Windows 8 once you have the newest version. I have it.

I am having one problem though.
In build mode, (build mode in Mozilla Firefox, not studio) errors out after 10 minutes of being in it. This is a problem for me, because I don't like going to studio mode because I don't like having all the tool bars in my face. Considering I use a box of givers in build mode, I can build fine. Just every 10 minutes I get the generic "An error has occurred, and ROBLOX needs to exit. Sorry."

Stats:
Toshiba Laptop
Windows 8
Mozilla Firefox
Build Mode that is not in Studio Mode
State of New York (In case you need location for reasons of an area is affected.)

Please help.
Thanks.

You can disable all the toolbars and windows if you want. Right click on the Studio menubar or toolbar and disable the ones you don't want. You can also turn them off through the View menu.

Is it possible that your machine is heating up or something along those lines? Does your fan kick on before you crash?

Are you doing anything in particular when it crashes? Can you open an empty place and not do anything at all and it crashes?

Ravenger, When I download it, and click open to run it, nothing happens. I try'd it Several time's at it still didn't work. So, do I haft to wait until you guys get ROBLOX compatible with Windows 8?

It's nothing to do with the place or my computer. I do not hear the fans, no obstructions to the fan system. Exactly 10 minutes after opening in Build Mode, I get the error message. Exactly 10 minutes using a stop watch. And yes, I have tried with multiple places. all the same result. And I dislike using the ROBLOX Studio because it lags a bit and is annoying to use for example if I have a party chat open or sometimes I don't receive messages on ROBLOX Studio till 10 minutes after receiving them on Mozilla Firefox. (Weird...)

I have no clue for you, everything works fine for me.

Other than one thing...
After the newest Windows Update (within a week)
My Mozilla Firefox can't click buttons on the site. Internet Explorer works fine though.

The Same thing is happening to my computer. Due to the Windows 7 in my house having some problems, my dad put in the Windows 8 computer we have in the room I use the computer. I really like it, and although my dad fixed the Windows 7, I like using the Windows 8. I really wanna play Roblox since I got Builders Club, but whenever I try to install it, the launcher will appear and do nothing

Its the same issue with my windows 8 lap top. I reported it to roblox help desk and they are looking at the problem right now. Only for me, i use google chrome, I cant even log into my acc to build on Roblox Studio 2013. It was working perfectly for me up until the last update which I find strange.

It happened to me except that I had ROBLOX installed on my Windows 8 laptop. It told me that I need to switch to "Desktop Mode" which I was already in. I even tried going through the Internet Explorer app and clicking "View on Desktop" but it still doesn't work. I tried uninstalling both ROBLOX player and ROBLOX Studio, but then it still shows me the same thing.
