Windows Server 2016
« on: April 16, 2019, 10:42:21 PM »
Hi

Looking to find out if Weather Display will run ok on Windows Server 2016?

I'm currently running Windows Server 2008 R2 (Foundation) but new server comes with the later version.

I've seen a few references to Windows Server 2016 on the forum so suspect it might be ok but want to be sure before I upgrade.

Many thanks
Colin

Hi

Anyone able to help with this question? Does anyone currently use Weather Display with Windows Server 2016 in either standard or essentials version?

Ive an order on hold so would really appreciate if someone is able to confirm 2016 is ok.

Thanks
Colin

Search shows few users posting about Server 2016, but I found these two posts indicating success (second one has OS unrelated FTP issue).

Yes, I'm running WD as administrator and WD has worked for years on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2016.
After upgrading to Windows Server 2019 it stopped working.
I have tried running in compatibility mode and checked fw rules and Windows event log, but can't see any issues or settings preventing WD to run
I'll send the video to your mail address
Thank's for working with me to try to resolve this!

(The 2019 issue was resolved)

Thanks Niko, Id seen those posts which indicated it was likely to work but was looking for confirmation that someone was currently using 2016 and everything was ok. Just about to spend quite a bit on new hardware so a little nervous and wanting to check things out first. Does look like it has been installed successfully on 2016.

Thanks
Colin

I guess it's a bit late now for anyone to be moving to Server 2016 (except for smart buyers of surplus hardware  :wink: ), but at least the GW400 post is from only 6 months ago so that would have referred to the current interation (except for relatively minor changes) of WD.
