Windows 8 Is Almost Here…

Windows 8 is officially scheduled to launch on October 26th, 2012The Computer Peeps are actively testing and evaluating Windows 8.  Windows 8 brings a new look or ‘layer’ to the mix and that is the Windows Metro interface.  New security features promise to make Windows 8 a more secure operating system.

With change also comes the potential for applications to break.  We’ll be testing each of the major consignment programs on the market:

  • ConsignPro
  • Liberty4 Consignment
  • Consignment Success/Ease
  • ConsignmentTill

We’re excited to see new features such as the ability to perform a clean OS installation, while keeping a user’s personal files – without having to backup the files to an external drive.  We saw the compatibility issues that came about with Windows Vista and UAC though and we’re evaluating the installation of each consignment program to see how they handle (or don’t) Windows 8.

Follow our blog for new posts that cover Windows 8, consignment software, consignment hardware, etc.  We’ve created a category just for Windows 8 posts, so you can quickly filter out posts related to Windows 8.

We’ll go into more details in subsequent posts, but thus far, we’re already seeing consignment applications fail to install on Windows 8.


I am a Software Developer, System Administrator, and consignment software specialist. I currently manage hundreds of consignment workstations, point of sale systems, and database servers all across North America and I am the developer of Peeps' Software, Peeps2Go, and Peeps' Consignor Login for iOS and Android. I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. Peeps' Software launched in 2016 and is now on hundreds of systems all across North America. I have successfully converted dozens of stores from all of the major consignment software systems. After 20 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old buildings or strip malls, to advocating for them when their old consignment software keeps crashing.
