Ok, got home from a business trip and decided to upgrade to windows 8. Reinstalled Xcom, the trainer and the editor... but the trainer and cheat do not work. Both report finding the game, and in game I hear the all to familiar "Activated" after hitting F1.
After tinkering with permissions and compatibility I am no better off.
I did notice though that there was a patch released for XCom on 11/1.
So, anyone with suggestions? Is it because the trainer and editor are for 220.127.116.1152 Version of Xcom?
