Kies for Windows 8? "unable to find software to recognize device"

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – I went to samsung.com/us/kies and downloaded kies for windows. I have win8 64 bit. It installed fine. During the install, it mentioned something about installing additional/universal driver, but suggested that it wasn't necessary if I'm running android on my phone (which I am), so I unchecked it. After, when I plugged in my phone, I got an error: " Attention: unable to find software on your pc that can recognize your device. Service pack 3, windows media, must be installed for windows xp." Of course, I'm not running XP. HELP! What should I do? Thanks, Mike (HowTos)
