Installing Veeam Backup and Replication 7.0 Free on Windows 8.1 laptop


Does anybody know if it is possible to install Veeam Backup and Replication Free edition on a Windows 8,1 laptop ?

I have tried and it failed but all the pre-requisites were met.  I havent yet had chance to check the logs, but I just wanted to see if it was possible or not.

well I would say yes, but check the install logs in your user's temp files.
You got to meet hardware requirements too (CPU and RAM), did you check that?
But there is no particular HCL or exclusion for laptop.

Make sure to launch the setup by running as an administrator:

R-Click the installation file and select 'Run as administrator'.

Many times this resolves the inability to install things.
