Are ROCCAT SAVU's Drivers Compatible With Windows 8?

I'm purchasing a new laptop and I need a new mouse to go with it.  This one is my favorite but it doesn't list as being compatible with windows 8.  I'm wondering if you know anything (since win8 is supposed to be backwards compatible with win7, but not always)?

 

Thanks

Hi Tyler,

 

 

The Windows Compatibility Center does not show any information regarding the compatibility of ROCCAT Savu mouse device with Windows 8. For the details refer to this link:

The ROCCAT website shows that it is only compatible till Windows 7. You may check this from the ROCCAT website. So, we can try installing the mouse on Windows 8 in Windows 7 Compatibility Mode and check if that helps. To install the device in Windows 7 Compatibility Mode, you may refer to the article: “Get your apps and devices working in Windows 8” from the link given below.
