Windows 8 and FTM 2011 Compatability

Windows 8 and FTM 2011 Compatability

Does anyone know if FTM 2011 is compatable with Windows 8? My desktop has Windows 7 and my FTM 2011 works fine. However, I am in the market for a laptop to take on the road, and Windows 7 is not available in the ones I've seen for sale. I'm worried that my FTM 2011 won't work with Windows 8.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Look on Tiger Direct for Win 7 Laptops. Some of these are refurbished or off lease.

FTM 2011 will work in Windows 8, either 32 or 64 bit

John, I've just upgraded from win 7 to 8 and on 8 FTM 2011 does not "sync with server". I've spoken to Ancestry and all they say is it's guaranteed to work on 7 but not on 8.
Am I missing something?
Cheers
David

FTM 2011 will NOT sync with any OS, you need to have FTM 2012
