ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run. If you attempt to use ComboFix on 8.1, it should provide a message alert: ComboFix is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode' and exit. This message is intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on Windows 8.1.

sUBs has advised that he is holding off releasing any working version of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure they work safely on that OS.

ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run.

 

A support is planned? The utility good and often helps with difficult cases.

Yes at some point but there is no time-frame as to when.
