Installing GSView and Ghostscript seems to work fine on Windows 8.1. I haven't tested out the Inkscape connection because I never end up using it, as it seemed pretty inconsistent. After installing Ghostscript and GSView with no problems, I set up the .eps printer as described in this tutorial. However, at least with the driver I chose (first HP one in the list which was HP Color LaserJet 2500 PS Class Driver), there were NOT any PostScript Options under Document Options in the configuration step. So I tried to go ahead and print my .eps file, and at least with the pdf I used, it worked fine. I'm not sure if that has to do with Windows 8.1, or if I just happened to select a handy driver.
