What version of gnucash have you been using? If, as you say, been using 
it many years, perhaps too old to recognize Windows 8 as being Windows. 
In which case updating to a newer version of gnucash should solve your 
problem (your data ISN'T in the program, not lost when you migrate to a 
newer version of gnucash).

Can somebody else tell cmoralesm what is the earliest version of gnucash 
that can recognize Windows 8?
