Hi,

I recently bought Accordance 10 (upgraded from the Mac version of 9) and I'd love to run it on my Microsoft Surface tablet if possible. Unfortunately, if I try to open the downloaded installer on my Surface, it tells me that "This program can't run on your PC." I distinctly remember a video on the Accordance website demoing the use of the Windows version on a tablet. Am I crazy? Or is there some way to get Accordance to run on my Surface?

Thanks for any help.

This is an unfortunately common miscommunication that Microsoft has created.  The Surface tablet can only run apps designed for Windows RT, which is very different from Windows 8 and any other desktop OS.  The Surface Pro runs a full blown version of Windows 8 and thus can run any desktop apps, including Accordance.

 

So, Accordance runs very well on a Surface Pro tablet, which is what I'm sure you saw demoed on the website.  But, the Surface (non-Pro) can't run any desktop apps, including Accordance.

However, we are running a giveaway to get a Surface Pro 2 with Accordance, so if you enter you may win!  Today is the last day.
