Pinned topic PurifyPlus Supported OS -- Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP2 ?

‏2012-11-05T11:48:51Z |
All,

I tried to install Rational PurifyPlus Win_7.0.1 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP2 server.

IBM Installation Manager Reports:
"This version of Microsoft Windows is not supported"

This seems to be an incredible weakness in 2012.

The code I want to test and get 'PureCoverage' results on has to run on this OS.

Is there anyway around this problem ?

<<<<<< Support OS's as per Release Notes >>>>>

Microsoft Windows Vista Business, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows XP Professional, base through SP3
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, SP2 through SP4
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, SP2 through SP4
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server, SP2 through SP4
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition, base through SP2
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Datacenter Edition, base through SP2

Regards,
Paul.

    Hi Paul,

    1. Are you sure you're on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP2?
    From what I can tell, SP1 is the latest stable service pack
    for Windows Server 2008 R2:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Server_2008_R2

    2. Note that PurifyPlus 7.0.1 iFix 003 (released April 2012) adds
    support up to Windows 2008 R2 SP1. So, this version of Purify-
    Plus would be your best bet to run on Windows Server 2008 R2
    SP2 (?) if that's what you've got.

    3. To download the latest PurifyPlus iFix:

    Best regards,
    Don

      Don,

      Sorry that was a typo, it is SP1. The R2 was the key question here (Windows Server 2008 R2).

      I'll see if I can download and install PurifyPlus 7.0.1 iFix 003 (released April 2012). The version I downloaded was available internally in a tools respository. We have 15 floating licenses.

      I may have to do some checking to get id's etc. to allow me download iFix 003.

      Thanks,
      Paul.
