Windows 8.  However the early clients don’t perform any Windows checks –
they let you login but that’s it.  If you want full Windows 8 support (with
posture checking) you need to either apply patch file
“Patch-CSCua09429-491.tar.gz” for 4.9.1 or upgrade to 4.9.2.  You also need
client version or later.

server was pushing out a newer version of the client that didn't work
because we hadn't applied the patch yet, however we worked around that by
manually installing an old version of the client (pre-  Then we
quickly applied the patch so the pushed out client would work since more
users were showing up with Win8.

I'm happy to put you in contact with our lead.
