Does NAV work for Win8.1 in a virtual machine?

Hi folks,

I have Windows 8.1 running as a virtual machine under Parallels on a Mac. Does Norton Anti-Virus (2014, I suppose) work in this configuration? I'd like to confirm this before buying.

Thanks,

--George

Re: Does NAV work for Win8.1 in a virtual machine?

Hi yefchak

The latest NAV v21.1.0.18 is compatible with windows 8.1 and will work on a virtual drive.  It will use one user licence. 

The issue with windows 8.1 is that you need to install the latest version which is v21.1.0.18, one-way to do it is to download the trial version (it is the same as the paid version) from the downloads button at the top of this page and then activate it with the key you have purchased.

Another way is if someone has the download link to the NAV v21.1.0.18 and can kindly post it.

I’m not sure if you would like to install NAV on the MAC operating system as well but I don’t think that for one purchase product of NAV you can do this.  A cautionary note MAC’s are no longer being advertised in the Apple store as being safe from infections so if you would like to install NAV on both operating systems you might like to Try live chat on the keyboard it’s free, with a Norton representative on the link below.  Vary the times of day you try, as it’s difficult to know when they are busy. 

The Norton representative will be able to inform you of the best option for your circumstance.
