just for the records:
Thanks to Aman and Matthew for providing me with potential workarounds (by PM).

Interestingly enough, none of these worked.
We finally managed to get wpa_supplicant for Windows to run
in Windows 7 compatibility mode, authentication was
successful then -- but did not trigger a subsequent DHCP request.
Could do this manually, of course, but the user at this
point realized he needs his machine for work not play
and reverted to Windows 7 ...
Thanks a lot to everyone trying to help out
