Since FogBugz On-site (version 8.15.x) and until Manuscript on-Premise Version 8.21.913, the installer was configured to be executed only on Windows Server 2012 RS2. However, there is a workaround to change this limitation and be able to install it on Windows Server 2016.
When installing Manuscript on a Windows Server 2016, you may encounter the following error:
Detected Major version 6, Minor version 3 (Windows Server 2012 R2).
Manuscript On Premises only supports Windows Server 2012R2 at this time.
- Mount the Manuscript DVD ISO and copy its content to your hard drive.
- Open the folder and edit ManuscriptOnPremRequirements.ps1 script with a text editor.
Make sure to remove the Read-Only attribute from the file.
10(by default is 6).
0(by default is 3)
Windows Server 2016.
- Save the updated file.
Now you should be able to install Manuscript on Windows Server 2016.
