When will Sitefinity 7.1 Support Windows Server 2012?

  • When will Sitefinity 7.1 Support Windows Server 2012?
  • The knowledge base article says "soon"http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/knowledge-base/unable-to-install-sitefinity-7.1-version-using-the-sitefinity-installer

     I'm entering my final round of tests for migrating our 3.7sp4 site forward and wanted to switch from 7.0 to 7.1 to pick up some of the features and fixes.

    Do you anticipate releasing this in the next week? If I start my final run with 7.0 how easy would it be to switch to 7.1 before going into final test?

     Thanks

  • Hello Sharon,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    Currently the limitation in the supported Operating System versions is valid only for the Sitefinity Installer - this is the tool which automatically downloads the different Sitefinity components (Sitefinity project manager, Sitefinity Thunder) and installs them on your machine.
    In order to install Sitefinity you can actually skip the Installer, and directly download the Sitefinity project manager as outlined in the KB article you have properly linked to.
    In the meantime our team is working on fixing the Installer tool compatibility as we speak, with a rough estimate to complete this task in the upcoming weeks.

    I hope the above information helps. Please do not hesitate to get back to us if you have any additional questions, or need further information, I'll be glad to help.

    Regards,
