When is it going to be compatible with Windows 8?

I have Windows 8, but there aren't any AutoCAD Inventor versions that are compatible with the OS. I was wondering if I could change my operating system to Windows 7 or find out if there is one that's going to be compatible within the next few months.

Look at dual booting your system. Win8 and Win7

I have 32bit Inventor running on Windows 8 on my home PC.  Had no problems at all so I didn't even realise it was an issue.  I don't know if compatability mode is on or off
