Okay. I understand it is not officially supported. (Win8 also released after pcAnywhere) Thanks for the link!

But does anyone here have personal experience with if it will run on Windows 8? (I know, no guarantees of course)

I thought Win7 and Win8 desktop were quite similar on the inside, so I was hoping someone here perhaps had tried it :)

Seems to work good enough I hadn't tried the extra functions like white board or command queue but basic remote seemed ok.   Make sure you have the most udated video card drivers on the host system and if performance isn't good enough you can try disableing the mirror driver that worked in 2008 r2 and windows 7 when the video was poor

If you find this post helpful please give it a thumbs up!

Yipee! Kai! Yea! Article:TECH110005 worked fine for me using PCAnywhere 12.5 on Windows 8.  I'm running on a PC I built with a AMD Phenom II X4 805 Processor.
