Possible to install on a 2008 R2 server?

Hi there,

Thanks to an academic licence, I have access to WIndows Server 2008 R2 and this weekend will be setting up a file server to pump media around the house on a spare 64bit box.

Will CIS install onto Server 2008 R2?

Kind regards,


The minimum OS supported is Windows XP SP2, but if you feel daring, you could just try installing and see what happens.

Try installing at your own risk. I’m not recommending installation as it may work, or may have unexpected results that cause you to reinstall the OS. But as it sounds like a fresh install, you might not care.

Yes, it is a fresh install.

So will give it a go.
