Fix for Dymo Label Software freezing in Windows 10 when using LabelWriter Printers

The Dymo Label Software 8.5.1 is supposed to work with Windows 10, but some people have been having problems with the software freezing during startup. ¬†Apparently the driver did work on the original base Win10 install, but a windows update “broke” it.

This is a “known issue”, and here is the fix for that problem:

  1. Right-click on DYMO Label v8 icon on the desktop
  2. Select Properties -> Compatibility -> Run in compatibility mode with Windows 7
  3. Apply and OK

Boom. Job Done.

[UPDATE 11-OCT-15] This fix is specific to this problem. ¬†If you’re not having this specific problem, then this specific solution won’t help! (duh)
