Windows 8 Compatible Mobile Device Center

The system requirements for Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 state that it only supports Windows Vista and certain versions of Windows 7. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with Windows 8.


On Windows 8 Release Preview, I am encountering an issue where the Center is not being installed despite my attempts to
install Windows
Mobile Device
. Instead of installing, the windows disappear as the system attempts to download the latest files. I have tried to resolve this issue multiple times, even attempting to use the compatibility option.
I am also seeking advice on a syncing tool that will allow me to sync my Windows phone 6.X with my PC. Can anyone offer suggestions?
