I would like to buy the new intel version of a the Windows 8 tablet. Specifically I want to run PATgaurd on it so I can have a portable tablet with me on the job.
Will PATgaurd run on Windows 8?

I can't answer your original question, but if it doesn't then you might consider something like VMWare to run Windows XP as a virtual machine. I know it means extra expense (VMWare is about £40 I think, plus a copy of Windows XP), but it should give you PatGuard II on your tablet, assuming that VMWare is usable on it (governed by processing power and available RAM).

Bluetooth support is sketchy from host (the tablet) to VM (Windows XP), you may need to use a serial to USB adaptor instead.
