Hello,

I am working with memoq 2013 on windows 8.1. The program was 'hanging' at the first 'initialisng' window and would not start. I found the solution in a forum, which was to change the compatibility in the properties via the memoq icon in windows. Ok, and the program starts.

But now it is painfully slow. Each character I type has a time lag and it is impossible to work like this.

I suspect it is something to do with this compatibility. Because I have no problems with any other program being slow on the same computer.

Can anyone help me? Please?

A few suggestions Jul 28, 2015

I have run memoQ 2013 on Windows 8.1 without any issues. Have you tried reinstalling memoQ? If not, uninstall it, run some PC registry cleaning software (e.g. CCleaner), and then reinstall.
You can also check if there are new updates for memoQ.
Antivirus and antispyware software may also interfere with the software. I suggest you add memoQ as an exclusion in your antivirus just in case.
Hope this helps.
