Hello,


did someone already try to install the Mindstorms software from set 8547 into Windows 8 ?
I already asked the official Mindstorms support, but they said they never tested it, and they don't know if there are plans to support Windows 8.

:sick:

Maybe they don't want to support windows 8 because there's coming a new mindstorms...??? :tongue:
But still, if I was them, I would support windows 8. I never tested it btw, I don't have (and don't want it yet :sick: ) windows 8.

That's it. Today, if you go out and buy a new PC, you still can choose between Windows 7 and Windows 8.
But for the next weeks and months, more and more new PCs will come with pre-installed Windows 8.
If someone buys a 8547 set, it should be compatible with current OS.

I haven't tried it personally, but I've spoken to several people who have tried it and it works the same as on Windows 7
