Windows Server Essentials 2012

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I will be installing this OS to use as a file/media server and was wondering if I would be able to use this PC with the server software to rip, encode, create HD video and also to edit pictures?? Or will the programs not work with the server OS??

They should work. Its shares the same kernel with windows 8. Unless the software vendor has explicitly put some code in to make their programs detect the OS and refuse to run then I can't see an issue.

I use Server 2008 R2 as my daily OS, and except for the lack of some useless BS, it's functionally identical to Windows 7.

I've dabbled with Server 2012 and it appears to be functionally identical to 8.

any other thoughts on if this will work with ripping software, video encoding and movie making software. I will be using adobe To edit pictures, nero and others to encode the video..

It should all work, if any installer throws up an issue you can always run /disableoslimit on the end of an installer (Thats Microsofts command for it.) Works for lots of things like Anti-Virus' etc.

I've used Server 08 to rip and recode quite a few DVDs using a variety of software without issue. I did the recoding on the server since it is substantially faster than my old AMD system.
