    Hi guys,

    I just purchased a new machine and at present have Windows 8 and IE10 on it.  Looking through the forums I noticed that there seemed to be a lot of teething problems developing with Telerik on Windows 8 and IE10.  I am trying to make a decision on whether to nuke the operating system and put Windows 7 on it?  One thing I rely on a lot are the Telerik examples and also code written by others in the forum to learn.  Is it correct that much of this code will not work in Windows 8 and IE10?  I guess we have to bite the bullet at some stage as most new machines being shipped will have this configuration.

    Just looking for your opinion on the level of compatibility of old code when developing with Windows 8 and IE10?

    What type of transition problems should I expect?

    Particularly interested in others that have recently made this transition!

    Many thanks.

    Hello Ian,

    The Windows 8 OS is not directly related to the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. What is relevant in this case is the IIS and IE that come with this version of Windows. There are not any known problems with IIS and the IE10 browser is officially supported since the Q3 2012 release of RadControls. Here you can check a full list of the system requirements.

    If you encounter any particular problems while implementing the RadControls, please contact us again.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
