Windows8 Support by CoreSuite?



since our first customers installed new PCs with Windows8 and SAP plans to support it by Business One in Q1/2013 I am wondering when there will be a version of CoreSuite supporting Windows8.

At the monent we can print documents using CoreSuite Desinger on that station but enterprise Search and Customizer are not available.

Best regards

Hi Andreas,

I created a message for SAP the other day, asking as to when they will actually start supporting Windows8, and I got the following reply:

Hi Sonja,

Development currently targets to support SQL 2012 and Windows 8 before the end of Q1 2013 as you mentioned. However, we will not communicate an exact date until we are certain that we can deliver. Thi s is why we are currently not communicating any specific date. They are not supported currently.

Please keep checking the B1 Supported Platform Overview -

As a rule of thumb, if Microsoft, for example, releases a new database version or operatingsystem for general availability, it usually takes approx. six months until we (not just B1 but SAP in general ) announce an official support statement.

Kind Regards,
