I've been wondering the same thing. The only thing I've found is this: http://supportnet.mentor.com/portal?do=reference.technote&id=MG580918. Go there then click on the idea link at the bottom and let them know you want windows 8 support!
Thanks for the info...
I had left a message there regarding that wish also several days ago. Hopefully there will a new VX release fairly soon that supports Windows 8.x.
Actually, I am a bit surprised as not many folks have mentioned about PADS not yet supporting Windows 8 as of yet. It looks that Windows 9 is likely coming out sometime next year, maybe even as early as late this year (but nothing official from Microsoft on it).
In China, neally all enterprise only use Windows XP and Windows 7 and 90% above is Windows XP
