From: richard seymour (firstname.lastname@example.org) i can't think of a reason it shouldn't work (except, of course, the LPI camera driver... that stopped working with Vista). I don't have a W8 system for ground-truth testing. (i didn't spend the $15, W7 is good enuf for my non-touchscreen). My usual advice is "please try it and report" have fun --dickMike here: Dick, any reason that StarPatch wouldn't work with Windows 8?
StarPatch should be equally happy (and/or happier). ASCOM is happy. There's really very little difference in Win8 from Win7 from the program's point of view. The primary differences are increased protection (any "well behaved" program won't have issues) and the touch-screen nature of the primary screen interface. have fun --dick
