Is Windows Server 2008 R2 supported?
No, or at least not officially. Our development focus is on supporting the important popular mainstream operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows 8.1 (32- and 64-bit) and later versions. We also support the 32-bit versions of Windows XP as well as Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) and of course Mac OS X (incl. 64-bit versions). This is something that can also generally be said about the majority of vendors developing professional audio software, which explains why there are very few audio applications available that are fully tested and supported under special server versions of Windows.
Having said that, Windows Server 2008 R2 actually uses the same driver model and provides similar functions as Windows 7. Because of that in most cases our Windows 7 drivers will work under Windows Server 2008 R2 as well. Make sure that all audio related services are enabled and running. Please understand however that because of the circumstances, we can only provide very limited technical support for such a setup.
