can't load Turbotax on windows 8 computer

I have already done everything TurboTax software advises to check to no avail. I called TurboTax and they said they culd not solve the problem after they tried to do it remotely with a download. They then told me the engineers would need to figure out why I am having this problem and a fix for it. They said it would take about a week, but then yesterday out of the blue I get an email from Intuit advising thta my case was closed, along with a survey to complete. I'm now baffled. Will Intuit continue to try to solve my problem, or has someone already decuided not to bother? Anyone else having this kind of problem?


Hello rriggi!


The email saying that your case is closed is for the case with the agent you talked to. A different case was opened with our Programmers and they will be working on that. Our programmers will email you and tell you how to fix the situation.


If you want you can reply to this thread and tell us what is happening with the install on your computer and we can try to help you here. Maybe someone else had the issue and got it fixed. They will be able to tell you how to solve the issue. However we need to know in detail what is happening and what you have tried so far to fix the issue.


Thanks for using TurboTax!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
