Installing software and drivers on Windows 8 when the installer blocks Win8

I'm running the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 and I wanted to install the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 software because I need the advanced controls, but the installer was doing an OS check and blocked the install.

I worked around the OS check by using Compatability mode.
Right click on the installer an choose Troubleshoot Compatability.
It will simulate Windows XP SP3 and everything will then install.
