Windows 8 and Meghdoot Software

There are problems in the installation of Departmental software in newly procured/supplied windows 8 systems. CEPT Mysore has thoroughly examined the issue with the help of Microsoft Personnel. As intimated by Microsoft personnel, Windows 8 or 8.1 Operating System cannot be used as server software. If a computer is to be used as server, Windows Server Operating system has to be installed. (Windows Server 2012 is the latest version)

CEPT could install SQL Server 2008 Express edition (64 bit) on Windows 8, 64 bit desktop. Later Speed net 4.1.1 was installed which resulted in errors during database/ table creation process. After installing SQL server backward compatibility tool (64 bit), Speed net 4.1.1 is installed and configured successfully. SQL Server Backward compatibility tool (64 bit) is available for free download from Microsoft website.

Though the MS SQL Server 2008 (Express edition) 64 bit was successfully installed on Windows 8, 64 bit operating system, the referred machine will have limited functionality of a server and hence may lack full server functionality in terms of data security, client systems managing and other security features that come with Windows Server

Hence, in view of the above, machines with Windows 8 or 8.1 OS (64 bit) may perhaps be used as Client and an exclusive Server machine with Windows Server OS may perhaps be used as Server at field units for installation of Speednet and Meghdoot application.
