    Windows 8 EMET requirements


    Hi I am new here, have been reading this site for some time. I need help with EMET. I installed EMET v4 on my windows 7 computer with no problems. I upgraded .net version 4 to have Client Profile and extended as that is what I read it needed. I do not find what windows 8 needs for .net. I have on my windows 8 computer under windows explorer .net 4.0.30319. Is this all I need on windows 8 to install EMET v4? Second question is I saw on a Microsoft page I needed to install KB2790907, which I do not find under windows update. Do I need to download and install this and if so has anybody had any problems with this update? Third and last question is I know windows 8.1 will be out soon, should I wait to install EMET after 8.1 to prevent any problems?

    Hello Lynn, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you do not have a previous version of EMET installed, then you should be able to install EMET 4.0 without needing to do install anything else. The tutorial below can give you more details to help.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I had used the v3 and beta v4 on the windows 7 but wanted to wait for v4 before trying on windows 8, so you are right in saying I do not have a previous version on the windows 8 computer. I am going to give it a try now on windows 8, Thanks for your help. Lynn
