Ansys 12 on Windows 8 - Does it work?
 
Hello folks,

quick question: has anyone installed Ansys 12 on Windows 8 yet?
If so, is it running well, or are there any issues with Ansys 12 I should know before upgrading my PC to Windows 8?

Thanks!

diamondx,

that`s what I also tought. I'm using Ansys 12 on windows 7, but I'm considering the upgrade, so wanted to be sure there will be no compatibility problems.

Thanks anyway!

why not consider upgrading to CFX 14.5 while you're at it?

By the way, there's a document called "Release 14.5 Windows 8 Known Issues & Limitations" on the ansys customer portal, it might be interesting for you.

Sorry for the delay and thank you all for your comments.

I've given it a try, and I'm glad to announce Ansys 12 works perfectly well on Windows 8 :p
No issues found so far.

Cheers!
