Update:  OK, so I was a bit too harsh on TechSmith.  After talking a lot more to them, a tech support guy at TechSmith was able to point out why Camtasia 8.0.3 would not launch on Windows 8.  It turned out that the upgrade for Windows 7 to Windows 8 would definitely prevent Camtasia 8.0.3 to work correctly, because to have it worked one needed to install Windows 8 from scratch.  That meant I had to reformat the computer, re-installed Windows 8 as if it was brand new, and then Camtasia 8.0.3 would work correctly when installed onto Windows 8.  I was able to confirm this as I had done exactly what they told me, which was to re-install Windows 8 from scratch.  You guys can read the rest of my original blog post, but only part of the old paragraphs are still meaningful now, because this paragraph right here is the solution to my complaint in the title.  I’m smiling at the moment, please share the joy with me!   Read the rest of the old post so you get what I’m saying in this post!
