Has anyone tried installing the MQX FFS Software package on Windows 8.1?

 

When I install the MQX FFS software package on my Windows 8.1 machine and then reboot, when I log back in the APP tiles have been removed from the Start & APP menus and I get a blank screen. Note that the tiles do not disappear until I have rebooted. The applications are still installed because I can search for them and run them fine. I was able to replicate this issue on two different Windows 8.1 PC’s. It also seems to effect each user on the system. If I uninstall the MQX FFS package then the tiles return to both the Start & APP menus. The MQX RTOS package seems to install okay without any effects to the OS.

 

Procedure:

  1. Installed MQX 4.0.2 (FSLMQXOS_4_0_2_GA.exe) as an admin.
  2. Applied Patch 4.0.2.1
  3. Applied Patch 4.0.2.2
  4. Installed MQX FFS (FSLMQXOS_4_0_2_FFS.exe) as an admin.
  5. Reboot.

 

I also tried installing FSLMQXOS_4_0_2_FFS.exe in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

 

Is there anything I can do to get the MQX FFS package installed without corrupting the OS?
