Hello, I'm a Windows software developer (Delphi language) and I'm trying to install one of my programs on a client's newly rented machine running Windows Server 2016 64-bit (this OS is uncharted territory for me).  Even though my program is developed in 32-bit, it runs on pretty much any other Windows OS and also 64-bit systems. Tried and tested. When I try to install it on this particular system though, I get a big blue window with the message:

"This app can't run on your PC"

(see attached screenshot), see additional screenshot for specs of machine).

Could it be some heavy duty anti-virus scanner running on that machine rejecting my software? Any thoughts please?

Thanks
