DESCRIPTION: Windows 8.1 was released Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013. ITS is not recommending the upgrade or supporting Windows 8.1 at this time.

McAfee has not yet made available a compatible antivirus for Windows 8.1. VSE 8.8 patch 4, when released, will support Windows 8.1.

Internet Explorer is automatically updated to version 11 with Windows 8.1. IE 11 is not currently available for Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows RT. Compatibility testing has not yet been done to ensure that all ITS-managed web applications will work on this browser.

See "Windows 8.1 Application Compatibility" for status on ITS supported applications and web apps.
