We have the latest code 7.2r4 on test VPN. On trace I noticed that Host Checker not even start. Do not see any software installed on PC.
Is WIndows 8 supported? If not do you know when

As per the supported platform guide for 7.2r4 Windows 8 is not yet supported.

Remember that the supported platform guide is just that - a list of what Juniper will work with officially and nothing more. So if it works "great" if it doesn't - "don't call us"
I have no clue when Windows 8 will be supported. As it does not ship until the end of the month I would guess that it will probably be in the next release - but that is just an informed opinion.

My understanding is that Windows 8 is 'officially' supported as of 7.3R1.
Our issue is that we're still running quite a few SA6000s that only support up to IVE 7.1. Does anyone know if there is a workaround to getting Host Checker to work on Windows 8 with IVE OS 7.1? Our rollout of MAGs is still 3-6 months away so this will likely become a bit of an issue in the interim...

We are still running SA6000s so have limited software upgrade capabilities but I have a Windows 8 configuration that works with Host Check and Network Connect.
7.1R5 (build 19757)
Using registry check for product name Windows 8. Using process check that malware checker is running. I assume other versions of Windows 8 will work as long as product name matches host check.
Cannot get MSIE10 on Windows 8 to even start host check.

So far it looks like Windows 8 support by Juniper is equal to a D-
No official statement of support that I have seen. 7.3 might support it but Juniper can't seem to release the "what's new" document for the software. Also who wants to go to a .1 rev of software just to support a new clients OS. Cmon Juniper 7.2 is barely out of the early Rev stages and now we should start with 7.3
