Obviously, this is an answer we don't know yet. But I suspect it probably will be. I am sure there will be an article about this around launch date.
Hello. There has been no official release but this is not a brand new operating system, just is an update. If this was for Windows 9, it would be safe to say it would not be immediately supported, but Windows 8 is a currently used OS that our 2014 products are able to utilize.
There is always a possibility that there will be a problem when this is released, but we won’t know until it has officially dropped. I suppose it really depends on how much of the operating system is updated and how.
Thank you for taking part in our community!
I am currently on windows 8.1, and tried to install Vasari and Building Design Suite 2014. Both installation failed at C++ 2005 and 2010. I did general troubleshooting and it did not work.
Inventor 2014 did work in Windows 8. Sorry however, when I upgraded to Windows 8.1 (x64) Preview, there were some strange happenings on my system and after digging in several forums over a weeks time, I found that the problem was fixed after changing a varibles setting which had to do with Inventor and Content Lib. I did find that most of my other 2014 Autodesk programs work just fine on Windows 8.1, except Inventor, which gives an application fails to start correctly (0xc0000142) error. I uninstalled and reinstalled Inventor several times also used the uninstall tool to uninstall Inventor and all of the Autodesk products, then reinstalled all and applied any updates available, all tried Autodesk products work except for Inventor. So, it appears that there is most definately something different about the Windows 8.1 OS, not just an upgrade. The Windows 8.1 program diagnostics tool also stated that Inventor 2014 is not compatible..
this SP is not working for me I Have try to instal it all done no error message appeard but inventor show the flach/loading screen and after loading it disapears the process is still running but no inventor has some one a solution for this

P.S. problem keeps appearing after the update for SP1
my experience follows yours closely, though in virtual machine.
I'm not brave enough to try these things in my workstation unless contained... so-
vmware workstation 10: create new windows 8.1 vm with default easy install except one 4-core processor, 4GB ram (vs default single core, 2GB)
After multiple attempts, I was able to install Inventor 2014 Professional by using browser download method.
some components would start, but Inventor gave the much reported xc000142 error.
after installing update one from the site you cited, it works.
I will say however, for you vm users, I believe it was necessary to run the vm in exclusive mode during update.
