    Getting an error "Apps are installed to open this type of link (origin)" in windows 8

    I have recently installed windows 8 and also installed almost all drivers without an issue. Most of the installed applications works fine except Need for speed Racing game which shows an error "Apps are installed to open this type of link (origin)". What should I do to fix this issue?

    First of all make sure that you have installed the driver of Game successfully.To check the same go to Control Panle>Progam and Features an check whether it appears in the list of installed drivers. If it is present but still you are facing this issue then uninstall it first and then It means that the problem is related to compatibility issue. To fix the same,follow the below given steps:
    • Open driver, right click on the "Properties" of set up file.
    • Then click on "Compatibility" tab then check the checkbox which shows "Run this Program in Compatibility Mode for" and select "Windows 7 OS".
    • Finally click on "Apply" and then on "Ok". Now run the Set up file to Install it and enjoy.
