Install vCenter 4.1 on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise x64?

Jump to solution

In reading the vCenter compatibility matrix, I see that vCenter 4.1 is supported on the following:

Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64-bit

Windows Server 2008 R2

Unfortunately, when I try to install vCenter 4.1 on a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise x64 server the installer throws this error:

This proudct can only be installed on the following 64-bit operating systems:

  Windows XP SP2 or above

  Windows Server 2003

  Windows Server 2008

Does anyone know what I am missing?  Apparently it isn't supported on this platform?

Tia,
Bill
