ADFS for Windows 2012

I am trying to install ADFS 2.0

I downloaded from the following link

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10909

I thought that the 64 bit version for Windows2008R2 should work in Windows 2012.

I tried and I was not successful.  

It's weird that Windows 2012 is the latest and ADFS 2.0 too and that they won't work together.

This is a simple yes or no question.  

Is there a way to run ADFS 2.0 in Windows 2012?  

Thanks

It will not work as ADFS in Server 2012 has some new features as compared to ADFS 2.0:

The following is from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831502.aspx

Integration with Dynamic Access Control scenarios - AD FS can be used with the user and device claims that are issued using Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) in Windows Server 2012 for various Dynamic Access Control scenarios. This integration enables AD FS to consume AD DS claims that are included in Kerberos tickets as a result of domain authentication. For more information about using claims from Kerberos tickets, see Using AD DS Claims with AD FS.

Improved installation experience using Server Manager – With AD FS 2.0, you had to download and install the AD FS 2.0 software to deploy your AD FS server infrastructure. However, in Windows Server 2012 you install the AD FS server role using Server Manager. Server Manager provides improved AD FS configuration wizard pages that perform server validation checks before you continue with the AD FS server role installation and will automatically list and install all the services that AD FS depends on during the AD FS server role installation. These services include Microsoft ASP.NET and other services that are part of the Web Server (IIS) server role.

Additional Windows PowerShell cmdlet tools - In addition to the Windows PowerShell based management capabilities provided in AD FS 2.0, AD FS in Windows Server 2012 includes new cmdlets for installing the AD FS server role and for initial configuration of the federation server and federation server proxy.

and if you look at the link you posted, expand system requirements and you'll find windows 2012 is not supported

install as a server roll as mentioned above

So ADFS 1.1 is better than 2.0 ?  Welcome to ConfuseLand.  

Thanks.  Yes I saw that it was not.  I tried to install the W2008 version and it didn't work.

I just don't see the logic.  

Thanks
