I have opened a bugzilla request at:


You should also provide some information in there stating that 4.0.3 is 
at not working either with windows 8.

If you look at event viewer in your Windows 8 client, do you have lots 
of errors related to the "Low" folders which are part of the Roaming 

My current workaround for this is to combine Folder Redirection and 
Roaming profiles on Windows 8. Seems like all the problematic folders 
are redirected if you choose to redirect AppData from group policy and 
the roaming profile allows configurations of programs to stick when 
users change computers.
