Hi,

 

Currently only Windows 7 is supported...Windows 8 is not. If you install it, it's going to be running on an unsupported OS, so just bear that in mind.

Thanks!

Symantec does not publish a roadmap of what is going to be supported or when.  You can create an idea in the Ideas section calling for the support of Win8 for remote consoles.  If enough users agree with you, it might get picked up in some future release of BE.
