I found Win8 is not supported yet, right?

I use Kix 4.62 on "Windows 8 Release Preview" and @producttype says "Windows 7 Proffessional Edition"

do we have to wait till next Kixtart-release?

Hi A_H,

I moved tour post to a separate thread and modified the title so it fits the issue/ question.

I assume Ruud (the developer of kixtart) is working on this and Win8 support will be added soon. He stops by every now and then to check for issues, requests or bugs.

yes, the way kixtart does it requires new kixtart version to be released for support of these updated strings to be added.

In the mean time, you may try to use the @DOS macro. Hopefully it will return 6.2 for Windows 8. I don't have a win 8 system to test this on however.

Thank you, @DOS reports 6.2 and I use this macro.

Sorry for answering late. I didn't have time because of office issues.

I can confirm that 4.63 also supports/works with Windows Server 2012.

i'm using kix to start drive mapping during the logon process and works fine with windows 7, however I start testing with Windows 8 RC and only the Home drive is mapped , the other mappings aren't done.

Use X: "\\Dataserver.company.LN\ServiceDesk" doesn't map.

What can we do ?

Regards
Patrick

Our login script running with Kix 4.62 runs fine and mapps all drives & printers on Win-8 Pro RTM. I've tested several other Kix scripts as well without significant issue. What I've found so far is minor and due to the new interface or command tools.

Our customize script fails to pin the custom command prompt link to the start menu becaue there isn't a traditional start menu. Need to update the command to support the new UI.

Our TSADM task scheduler tool doesn't seem to work - not sure if it's mis-detecting the O/S and installing the XP version or SCHTASKS.EXE has changed (again) and needs a library update. Neither of these are Kix issues.

What is the value of @ERROR after the failed USE?

And have you tried running the script after logon, in a command prompt?

Kind regards,

Ruud

FYI - running "USE L: \\server\share" maps the drive after logon without error on Windows 8 / Version 6.2 / Build 9200 - tested with Kix 4.53, 4.60, 4.62, and 4.63, and WKix 4.60 and 4.63.

Our regular script runs using Kix32 v4.62.

Do you have anything in your script that includes @producttype. Win8 is not supported in kix until the just released 4.63.

4.63 is required for Win8 support.

Like Ruud already asked, what is the error code just after you try to map a drive?

You can put the code below directly after each attempt to map a drive. Just some simple debugging code.

 Code:
? @error
? @serror
Sleep 5
