Additional information: 

I encountered a fatal error reboot when trying DiskCryptor on Windows Developer Preview of Windows 8, but that's ancient history. The FAQ states "DiskCryptor supports any Microsoft operation system since Windows 2000. Windows 2000 support will cease with the release of DiskCryptor 1.0 which will require Windows XP or newer." The "Supported OS" section of the product description does not list Windows 8. There's also the question of support for UEFI, which virtually all Windows 8 computers use.

64 Bit compatibility: 

32 bit but 64 bit compatible
