Problems with Windows 8

Did you look in "C:\Windows\LDraw" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\LDraw"? It is supposed to be in "C:\Windows\LDraw"

Error 6. - "Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\warwick\AppData\Local\Temp\ir_sf_temp_0\povwin 36.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly, then try again"
Error 7. - The folder containing the POV-Ray program could not be found. Browse for the folder usually named 'Pov-Ray for Windows vX.X There was a standard browse window, but I could not locate the folder. The options were "make new folder" "OK" or "cancel". I opted for cancel!
Error 8. - Pov-Ray.ini file was not found on your computer. If POV-Ray has been installed, the path to the LGEO library have to be added manually.

I searched for POV-Ray manually after the install had finished and found the following file listed. "Installer Package 'povwin362-64bit'. Attempting to start the installer (usual double click), the following error message came up.

"The installer package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor that this is a valid Windows Installer package"

Hope this helps you!

Error 7 and 8 are produced by the search routine I coded in for the LGEO paths and are a consequence of the first events. It sounds like a UAC issue where the POV installer misses proper rights. I'll have to investigate. You could try to download the installer from the POV site:

install POV manually and see if the error occurs again.
