Enabling Tincr on Windows 8

Some time ago I posted a blog post on Tincr and live reloading of CSS/JavaScript in Google Chrome. This works really well with one exception, on Windows 8 it will not install. When you try Chrome shows the following error message:

This application is not supported on this computer. Installation has been disabled.

The Chromium team has acknowledged this as a bug but it still needs to be fixed.

The interim solution

Fortunately Lauricio Su came up with a nice workaround and posted it in the Tincr discussion group. Basically his solution is to run Chrome in Windows 7 compatibility mode and install Tincr. After that Chrome can be started in the normal way and Tincr will work just fine.

This worked just fine for me with one addition. I had to keep once instance of Chrome running before starting a new instance in compatibility mode. Without that Chrome would not get a connection to the Internet.
