ACT Premium 2011 and Windows Server 2012 Essentials

I am looking to upgrade my server from SBS2003 to Windows Server Essentials 2012. I wanted to know if this is compatible.

Thank you for your response. I am well aware that ACT would like me to purchase a new version. I am hoping for response from the community in case someone has gotten this to work.

In case anyone is interested. Windows Server 2012 Essentials does work with ACT 2011 Premium.

We weren't trying to sell you a new version.  We just don't Support Installing on that version of Windows.  While you may be able to install it, certain features may not work, but most of those features wouldn't be used on the server usually.  Integration with other programs my not function properly, and it may not render graphics as expected (for instance).  In both of those cases that's end-user dependent, so as long as they're running on a supported platform they shouldn't have any problems.

 

If you, or one of your users calls us for help with a problem on the server, we wouldn't be able to assist.  That doesn't mean you can't get it to work.

Can you tell me if you've had any problems and if you had to do any special configuration to get it to work? Also, does it allow email attachment to a contact from Outlook?
