Re: Is Mathematica V.8.01 fully supported by Windows 8.1?

We've been testing and running Mathematica v9 under Windows 8.1 for 
some time now (I've personally been doing so for a couple of 
weeks others in the company have for longer).  The only problem I'm 
aware of that's surfaced is that the web browser plugin which comes 
with Mathematica doesn't work out of the box with the new Internet 
Explorer 11.  Wolfram Research Technical Support does have a fix for 
that problem.  Wolfram fully supports Mathematica 9 under Windows 8.1.

I'm not aware of any issues (aside from the plugin) with version 8, 
either, but our testing for it hasn't been as thorough, and so I'm 
not going to make such a categorical statement for that.
