I just installed Windows 8 Developers Preview. I tried to install Guest Additions, but I get an error message telling me that they cannot be installed on this version of Windows.

For the purposes of drivers and such, Windows 8 is basically identical to Windows 7. The guest additions should be modified to work on Windows version 6.2 (the actual version of Windows 8) in addition to the 6.1 version (7).

You can install them if you use compatibility mode. But they don't work :(
