Qt5.9 Windows Server support



  • I have seen the Qt5.9 supported operating systems here, however does anyone know if Windows Server 2008, 2012 is supported as these are still products that Microsoft does still support.

    If anyone has any information I would be keen to hear.

    Regards

    Hi
    Do you mean as target or as development platform?



  • Hi,

    As a target platform, Microsoft do still support it (with their extended support).

    Hi
    As far as I know, Qt is not tested against server versions also.
    That said, there is a big chance it will run.
    There is of course the issues with openGL. So depends on server hardware and
    maybe even what roles you have installed with 2012.
    There might be issues with media plugins and other features that depends on
    desktop backbone features that might not be installed. (such as codec to play mp3 files etc)

    So best options would be just to test it :)



  • Thanks for the info

    I did run a small qt tool on win 2008 server with no issues but it was static compiled
    and only using basic Qt stuff and no QML/openGL or media or network. So not really a test. :)
