Hi,

I've installed the BE 2012 Remote Console on my laptop which runs Windows 7.

However, if you go according to the SCL, Windows 7 isn't supported.

Will this be changed in future, and if not, can this be considered? Having a Windows Server 2003/2008 server readily available isn't always possible to install this utility on.

Thanks,

Craig

Would like to see the inclusion of Windows 7 under remote console compatibility.

I am looking to install the remote console on my Windows 7 PC so I don't have to log into the Server for administrative duties.

Where is the S/W to do so?

(I tried installing the 'remote console' from the B. Exec 2012 Server CD, but it says I need to install on a Win 2003 or higher box)

Thanks!

Page 21 in the BE 2012 SCL does show Windows 7 is supported for profession, ultimate, and enterprise versions of the operating system:

Are you all trying to install it on the Home or N Versions of Windows 7?

Hi...I am trying to install it on Windows 7 Professional

I don't see the S/W available in the downloads section of Symantec. And I can't install it from the Server CD because it is looking for Windows 2003 or later.
