I have just installed standalone QGIS 2.0.1 on a PC with Windows 8. But, when I open it and try to add layers nothing happens? I browse to find the file I want and click 'open' but it doesn't turn up as a 'dataset' under 'source'. My first thought was that it is something with the encoding (it says 'system'). The encoding on my other PC with QGIS 1.8.0 is set to 'UTF-8'.
I installed QGIS 2.0.1 on another PC with Windows 8 a few months ago, and it works fine. What can I have done wrong? Can it be something with the settings?
I have tried with both .shp and .ecw-files.
