I'm running into a bit of a problem at work with my new laptop and I'm hoping that someone will have a bit more experience and be able to help me.
I just got my new laptop at work yesterday and it's running Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64 bit. So far everything works great, except for one program which I use on a regular basis that doesn't seem to want to work properly, most likely due to a compatibility issue.
We use Exchange Server 2010 SP1 with rollup 8. I managed to install the management tools without too much of a headache, and when I run the management console, it does connect to the Exchange server, but I'm not able to do anything and I don't seem to have access to any functions to modify user mailboxes or distributions lists or public folders and what not. It worked perfect fine on my Windows 7 Pro desktop that I was using previously, but no luck so far on Windows 8.1.
Check out the attachment to see what I get when I access the Microsoft Exchange On-Premises portion.
Everything has loaded but I'm not able to access any other functions.
I'm pretty sure that Exchange 2010 SP1 management tools are not supported under windows 8.1 and as far as I can tell, only SP3 is supported, but I don't have the authority to upgrade our Exchange servers to 2010 SP3 or even 2013 since I'm just an IT Support guy.
Is anybody aware of any workarounds or fixes for this, besides RDC to a Windows 7 machine or accessing the servers directly?
Thanks in advance!
