Can i install Backup Exec 2012 on Windows 7 x64 Professional

Created: 10 Apr 2012 | 2 comments

Hi,

AS i understand it you cant install the 2010 version on Windows 7?

Can you do it now with the 2012 version?

I used to use 10d on my XP machine but i have now replaced that with a Win 7 machine and of course 10d is not compatable.

Before i go buy 2012 am i able to install it to backup my 1 and only Win 7 machine?

Thanks

Don't forget to give a "Thumbs Up" or Mark as "Solution" if someones advice has helped you.

...if you're able too, put down a Server 2003/2008 server and then load BE 2012 on that. This will allow you to back up the Windows 7 workstation using the RAWS agent.
