Can't get Ultimate Doom to work in Win8 I upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to Windows 8 Professional 64-bit. Then I reinstalled all my Steam game data then I go to run The Ultimate Doom but it takes for ever to load. Then it says wrong mouse driver no swift support. Then when it does load the game will have locked up. Then I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Del to end the game. Is there an update available that will fix everything???
Yeah - Windows 7 is your update...
Did a quick search on Google - haven't seen much, but the following might apply:

reply to floydb1982 Not sure if this will work after installing Windows 8 Pro but you can try running the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant to see if your game is listed.
I have Windows 8 Pro 64bit installed on my Asus Eee Slate EP121 Core i5 tablet PC and everything is fine there for the most part. However, I was thinking of upgrading one of my main desktop systems from Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit to Windows 8 Pro 64bit. I ran the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant and under items to review there was at least one Steam game that was listed,
with a link for an update!

Personally if I were you I would go into the steam install folder where your .WAD is for ultimate doom, then download gzdoom(»www.osnanet.de/c.oelckers/gzdoom/index.html) it lets you play in a full opengl rendered world. Same graphics/textures and everything else, but lets you use KB+M to play and feels smoother. Or normal zdoom for softwear '3D' like duke 3d used.
As far as updates for windows 8, no idea what to do never heard of this before. I guess you could download DOSbox and try using that somehow,
