You can install Offline Access client on Windows 8. The requirement is that you have Dot.Net Framework installed on the PC.

Use this command to install / turn ON dot.net framework on Windows 8:

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:G:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Please note:- Letter "G" in above command is the drive letter in which your Windows 8 installation Disc has been inserted.

Hello HITMAN,

Unfortunately, at this time there is no Offline Access client that supports Windows 8.  We do have plans to develop and support one in the near future, but I do not have a target date for that.

Thanks,

Brad

Was this from a Windows 8 upgrade from 7?  I still receive the "This is not a supported operating system version or service pack"

took a little tweaking, but 20 minutes to research and complete this was no where the amount of time needed on waiting for EMC

Used the following sites:

    (1) http://www.technipages.com/download-orca-msi-editor.html

    (2) http://clifgriffin.com/2008/10/31/installing-an-msi-in-compatibility-mode-orca-hack/

- Run the .exe installer.

- While it's open, go to your temp directory and grab the .msi file for Source One.  Copy it to C:\ (or where ever you would like)

- Install ORCA MSI Editor from the first link above.

instructions are then at link (2) above, or just follow below:

- right click the EMC .msi file and 'Edit with ORCA'

- on the left side click 'InstallExecuteSequence' and drop the row LaunchConditions and EX_Val_Configuration

- on the left side click 'InstallUISequence' and drop the row LaunchConditions and EX_Val_Configuration

- file save

- file exit

- run the "new" .msi installer.

- afterwards, i just ran the .exe and did a repair on the installation and now everything works great !!

Hello Windows 8 and EMC Source One !

I did the same, but deleting only the row Ex_Chk_OS1 from table CustomAction

This row infact check OS and if it's considered invalid change the property value EX_INVALID_OS to True that for default it's False (see Table Property for default value).

In this way deleting the above row EX_Chk_OS1 the OS check is completely delete and EX_INVALID_OS remains False so that installation go ahead.

I checked the same in OA 64bit version, but it seems no OS check is done for 64bit.

Maybe because before Windows8 Office Outlook 64bit could only run on Windows 64bit OS all considered compatible with OA.

In any case I didn't have a proper enviroment to test Windows 8 combination with Office Outlook 64bit so I can't confirm if OA 64 bit could be succesfully installed in it's original version.
