windows 8 won't recognize USB ant stick (Read 43 times)

    I installed the Garmin Ant Agent on a new Windows 8 Surface Pro computer and cannot get it to recognize the USB ant stick.  Has anyone successfully installed on Windows 8?  So far Garmin tech support has not been helpful.

     

    Thanks,

      I didn't have any trouble using the Garmin Ant Agent with Windows 8.  I'm afraid I can't be of much more help, as I hated Windows 8 and am now using a Mac.

        It turned out the problem is USB 3.0 rather than Windows 8.  Garmin is working towards a solution.
