iPrint client 5.92 Hangs on install for Windows 8.1

We are trying to implement windows 8.1 into our tablet environment. while setting up printing to the client devices i'm running into deployment issues with the iPrint client 5.90 and 5.92, both seem to hang on the spooler update portion of the install, and are unable to recover. I have had one finish with an error stating that the spooler service did not respond in a timely manner to the startup command. however even after manually starting the spooler service the client was not installed. Any Help or hints would be most appreciated.

Currently there is no iprint client for windows 8.1. Novell is working
on a new version to make it compatible with win 8.1.

Does Novell have any timeframe on delivery for the 8.1 compatible client?
For us it is a bit urgent.

do not quote me on that but it may be a Beta client, only English, by
the end of November and if no issues are found during the beta, by the
end of December the official release.

Novell have released iPrint Client 5.93 which adds support for
Windows 8.1 although currently it will only work against the
recently released iPrint Appliance 1.0.1 as some server side
fixes are also required for OES servers. Client is available from

Those server-side fixes for OES11 SP1 to support Windows 8.1 (and
OS X Mavericks) are now available via the patch channel and to
download[1] .

Note iPrint Client for Windows 5.94[2] and for Mac 5.74[3] are now
also available for download.
