How to install programs on Windows Server 2012 R2 x64 Datacenter


This always happens if you run a program that is not designed for your operating system like if you have Microsoft Windows 8 and you open or start a program that is specifically for Windows XP until Windows 7 only, you will likely have this problem. But the only difference is that, in non-server Microsoft Windows, the error message doesn’t show to which operating system the program runs on.

Your best luck to run the program under Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 is to run it in compatibility mode. To do this, right-click on the program or executable file you wish to launch then select Properties. Select Compatibility tab then under “Compatibility mode” section, check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” then select one of the operating systems displayed in the error message [Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8]. See image.

Under Privilege Level section, check “Run this program as an administrator” then click OK. Double-click the program or executable file to launch it and see if it works. If it doesn’t, the only way you can run the program is to get or download the correct version of the program that works or designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2.
