Trouble In Ableton Live 8 controling volume faders

I just bought a new computer with Windows 8.  I've had some troubles getting Live 8 to work smoothly on the 64 bit system (I did the update) but everything is working now except one problem.  When I use the mouse to adjust the volume faders they jump all the way to full-up or all the way to zero.  It's very difficult to control.  When I try to pan they jump all the way far right or left.  When I try to zoom it's very difficult to keep it from zooming all the way out.

Anybody have any ideas?

    YES! had Exactly the same thing, its fixed now. Follow these steps:

    - Create a Options.txt file in the Ableton preferences folder (In WIN vista/7: users\appdata\roaming\Ableton\ live x.x.x\ Preferences) (IN OSX: Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live x.x.x/

    Just make sure its in the SAME folder as the preferences.cfg file

    - Put the following text in this Options.txt:

     

    -AbsoluteMouseMode

    This is highly annoying. For anyone who this didn't work for, you're copying -> pasting the wrong thing almost certainly. You need to paste this into your documents:

    Start copy after the colon not including this line:

     

    -AbsoluteMouseMode

     

    :end copy including the line before this but not this line

    Your document should have three lines in total. One blank, one -AbsoluteMouseMode, and another blank.

    I can't find that file and don't feel comfortable trying to do this. I'll probably mess it up. Think Ableton will fix this with an update?
