The drivers should be compatiable with Windows 8.1, if not you can always find the lastest drivers online.

I am only using it on Windows 7 and so would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly via http://plugable.com/products/usb-bt4le

Can't say for certain 8.1 I am using it with 8 and it works very well. Use it with a stereo headset and to tether my iphone for internet access when travelling.
