Just a heads up that Windows 8 support for running the Interactive Maps will be here soon! The word on the street is that support for the OpsMgr Extension will be extended to Windows 8 Consoles during MMS 2013!
Until then, please run the consoles on WIndows 7 with the current OpsMgr Extension.
Note: You may see a console crash if you recently upgraded to Windows 8 and installed the LiveMaps OpsMgr Extension with the consoles.
FYI on Errors seen on Windows 8 for the current Live Maps OpsMgr Extension:
