Nothing "official" here, but we have a Win8 station with Revit 2013 running perfectly.
I'm running Revit 2013 on a Retina Mac/Bootcamp/Windows 8. I have already installed Service Update 2 which fixed the ribbon display problems noted elsewhere. But before and after that update, Revit is catatonic--slow to the point of appearing to be frozen. When I try to select objects, it appears nothing happens, but several minutes later it will recognize the selection. Same when I try to switch views.
I have noticed that the workset and design options monitor at the bottom of the Revit window are constantly flashing, as if Revit is refreshing the worksets and design options, but this is a new file without any worksets or design options.
I hate W8 and I would have installed Windows 7, but I can't get a copy of W7 anymore (except questionable copies on ebay) COME ON AUTODESK!!! I pay my subscription every year and never call tech support. But the tech support on this issue: "Revit is not yet tested with Windows 8. No information is available as to when Revit will work with Windows 8" WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?! Buy a used computer while Autodesk works out the bugs? This is unacceptable!
I just started a new position, where I received a brand new, state of the art computer, which of course runs Windows 8. The compnay has had to postpone purchasing AutoCAD until these "issues" are resolved. TIC TOC...TIC TOC
The following document was recently published (today) regarding this topic:
Windows 8 Support for Autodesk products
You say in that link that 3dsmax 2013 works on windows 8 yet when i try to install it i get an error at the start of the installation and it just instant quits...and thats with any products i try to install of 2013
Autodesk officially supports some of our products on Windows 8 at this time. The list will be updated over time, so make sure to keep checking!
I'm currently running Revit 2012 on an old cpu, with my new machine sitting in a box waiting for IT to install (waiting, and waiting, and waiting...). In any case, it will, of course, be running Win8, and I'm a bit concerned - ESPECIALLY - after reading this and similar posts, that our new, expensive software won't run properly on our new, expensive machines, with their new Win8 software...
The Autodesk list still doesn't show Revit as running correctly in Win8, is this something I should be losing sleep over?
you won't lose sleep over it
since the 2013 release came out before windows 8 did autodesk did not test some of the products on the new OS
the main reason being is .net 4.5
it doesn't mean it won't work
