NetBackup 7.5 Remote Admin Console - Windows 8

Level 3

Has anyone been able to successfully install the Netbackup Remote Administration Console on a Windows 8 machine?  My NetBackup servers are all currently running  I know Windows 8 is not officially supported yet on this version, but was hoping someone has had some luck as my new machine is running Windows 8 Pro x64 and I don't want to remote into a different machine all the time to perform admin tasks.

I have tried turning of UAC, running as my domain account which is a local admin along with right-clicking the install and choosing "Run as an administrator", and running as the built-in local admin.  In all cases it gets through what appears to be most of the install then it stops and rolls it back.

As of now Symantec does not support Java console on Windows 8. Follow the link below to see the complete list of OS support:

Win 8 is not supported at all yet - will come in / 7.6 at the same time as Win 2012 Support. If it gets to the end and then rolls back it will be due to a service start error - so maybe take a look in the event log to see if you can spot a reason the service could not start - may give you a clue to why it wont install Does Windows 8 have the "XP Mode" that came with some versions of Windows 7? - Maybe you could use that? Hope this helps
