Title: Installing mediaSERVER on Windows Server 2012
Post by: frengix on March 10, 2015, 04:47:56 AM
Hello,

It is indicated on the website that mediaSERVER OS requirement is Windows 2008 Server 64 bit. Many of the new sites now will be forced to buy the latest edition of Windows Server since 2008 version is not being sold any more by Microsoft.

My question is can I install on Windows Server 2012 without a problem?

Thanks

Hi Frengix,

I tried the install on a W2012 but no dice...
You should install it on a 2008.

MS doesn't sell it anymore that's right, but if you buy a W2012 license you may downgrade to a lower version of the same license model (standaard, core, enterprise, etc...)

Thanks Tiet for the update. Had to resort to 2008 R2 and it worked just fine.
