How to install legacy application in Windows 2008 or newer environment
Posted on 2013-11-05
I've got an old piece of software, that is actually the client installation for our ERP system. It's no longer supported by the manufacturer (for product updates), the last OS I've been able to install it on is Windows 2003 Server SP2.
I am unable to install it in Windows 2008, I receive the following
"You are installing on a version of Windows ( Win32s Service Pack 2 ) that is unsupported"
Are there any tricks out there to get an application to think it's installing in an older version of windows outside of using Compatibility mode? How about application servers? Is there a way I can publish this to a Windows 2008 box from a hosted Windows 2003 server?
