    Hi Brian,

    We're looking into this. The preview release  seems to have broken networking in a bad way. We've noticed a few other apps having trouble connecting to websites (including Chrome when downloading secure content). We don't recommend installing the Preview release on production systems.

    That said - we're looking into this right now.

    Any status update on this? Having my 8.1 preview offline is inconvenient.

    Jump supports connecting Windows 8.1 Preview manually (i.e. via an IP address). The automatic setup has a problem for Windows 8.1 Preview. We're looking into fixing this.

    Just an update on this: Looks like this issue has been fixed in the final Windows 8.1 release. We've re-tested Jump Desktop with Windows 8.1 RTM and so far haven't found any issues with RDP or VNC. 

    One caveat: .NET 3.5 needs to be installed on Windows 8.1 prior to installing Jump Desktop. We'll be releasing a new installer that'll address the issue - in the meantime please take a look at this link on how to enable .NET 3.5 on Windows 8.1: http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1147872-howto-install-net-35-in-windows-81/

    This does not fix t the issue.  Today I downloaded Windows  8.1 preview and Jump stopped working.  I did the above and it did the same thing.  I uninstalled, I reinstalled.  I've tried everything.  Please post a step by step guide to get this working again.

    @Dale Windows 8.1 Preview has a know issue with Jump Desktop. However, we've verified that the final-non-preview version of Windows 8.1 (to be released in mid-October 2013) works quite well with Jump Desktop.

    I have Windows 8.1 Pro, and am writing this from my ipad using the JumpDesktop app. It definitely works.

    Syeed-- please tell me step by step how you connected iPad to Windows 8.1.  I am having difficulty when I click on Jumpdesktop.dmg on iPad to "Open in 'Jump,'" nothing happens.
