EOS Version 2.1.x does not support Windows 8.
There are very few known issues however, and we have heard reports of sites running Windows 8 successfully with EOS Family client software.
That said, with Windows 8 support not officially in EOS Family Offline/Client preceeding v2.1.x, customers attempting to use a client kit may need to download Windows 8 compatible drivers from the SafeNet website. The version we built into EOS v2.2 is 6.60.
This means that Windows 8 support for EOS Offline/Client and an installer that includes appropriate drivers for Win8 will not be in EOS 2.1, and is added in 2.2.
If you would like to give Windows 8 a try with an EOS version of 2.1.x or earlier, you will need to download the Sentinel HASP/LDK Windows GUI Run-time Installer.
The link for this driver can be found below.
