The FP2 Client and Server software are fully compatible with Vista/Windows 7.
Client Note: When running the Client software for the first time in a Windows Vista/7 environment, use the "Run As Administrator" option to ensure that the Client is able to update the Registry correctly. Subsequent use of the FP2 Client does not require this permission.
Server Note: It is critical that the FP2 Server Installer be run with a Local Administration account. The Server Installer needs to create a new User (postgres) to run the PostgreSQL Service, and user creation is only possible with a Local Admin account. Please note that a Network Admin account with Local Admin privileges usually does not work for this installation.
We strongly recommend that the FP2 Server software not be installed on a Domain Controller, as a Domain Controller generally does not allow Local Admin accounts.
