We are targeting the release of StarTeam 14 Update 1 in November 2013 to provide fully certified Windows 8 support. In the meantime if your current OS is Windows 8 you can still use the CPC and the StarTeam ToolBar. To install and enable these features please see  below:

A workaround to get CPC installed and working on Windows 8 can be done by the following.

  • Install sdkruntime-130-win64.exe on your Windows8 machine.
  • Install cpclient-130-win64.exe on another machine.
  • Copy the Java and StarTeam Cross-Platform Client 13.0 folders to your Windows 8 machine.
  • Double click/create shortcuts to the StarTeamJRE.stJava file within the StarTeam install folder.

The CPC will not successfully launch and run without any known issues.

To get the StarTeam ToolBar to run on Windows 8 you need to install on a supported OS and then copy the full installation folder over onto the Windows 8 machine. After this copy you will need to create two registry keys as detailed below:

32-bit system:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\StarTeam Toolbar]"CurrentVersion"="13.0"

 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\StarTeam Toolbar\13.0] "Cmd"="C:\\Program Files\\Borland\\StarTeam Toolbar\\SBToolbar.exe"

 64-bit system:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Borland\StarTeam Toolbar]"CurrentVersion"="13.0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Borland\StarTeam Toolbar\13.0]"Cmd"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Borland\\StarTeam Toolbar\\SBToolbar.exe"

Now when you launch the CPC it will automatically start the ToolBar and you can cache your logons.

  • Thanks for these instructions David!  I had been trying to figure out how to get the ToolBar to work on Windows 8.

    One minor comment.  Looks like there is a typo.

    It says "The CPC will not successfully launch and run without any known issues."

    Think you meant "The CPC will now successfully launch and run without any known issues." :-)
