    Hi Michael and welcome to the forum. I’ve done a little digging into your questions and here is what I found.
    This is a bit of a hack so try at your own risk:

    To install STEP 7 v5.5 SP3 (DVD update release) follow these steps.

    1. Download and install the latest 64-bit version of automation license manager here.

    2. Copy DVD content to any directory on hdd.

    3. Modify ./Setup.exe using any resouce modification software. Eg ResourceHacker. Add the line

    //this is the os ID of Windows 8 64bit

    4. Modify ./InstData/Setup.ini under section OS.

    PlattformIDAllowed = 1;2;3

    Add the lines

    Win8x64=1
    Win8x64Exclude=SKU2;SKU3;SKU5;SKU8;SKU9;SKU10;SKU11;SKU12;SKU13;SKU14;SKU15;SKU16;SKU17;SKU18;SKU19;SKU20;SKU21;SKU22;SKU23;SKU24;SKU25;SKU47;SKU66;SKU67;SKU68
    Win8x64Warning=SKU2;SKU3;SKU5;SKU8;SKU9;SKU10;SKU12;SKU13;SKU14;SKU15;SKU16;SKU17;SKU18;SKU19;SKU20;SKU21;SKU22;SKU23;SKU24;SKU25;SKU67;SKU68

    5. Modify all msi-files to enable the ingore-button on installation failures (like installing on unsupported OS’s). Use any software possible to manipulate MSI-files. E.g. InstEd.

    Search for DLG_INSTALLATIONREQUIREMENTS_DISABLE_IGNORE. Change Action from Disbale to Enable.

    Run ./Setup to start installation. Press the ingore-button when told it’s not possible to install on running OS.

    Good luck and if you’re looking for an excellent text on this and Siemens programming – check out this book Automating with SIMATIC S7-1200: Configuring, Programming and Testing with STEP 7 Basic V11; Visualization with WinCC Basic V11 on Amazon, I highly recommend, it is excellent!

    I’m currently working with Step 7 v5.6 in Windows 10. No issues so far!
    Just used the DVD and all went well…
