Is it possible to install Coveo in in Windows 8.1?

Hi everyone, I just tried to install the Coveo CES located in http://productupdate.coveo.com/en/..

I was wondering if is possible to install Coveo in my local machine to test it?

Thanks

Hi,

Please note that we do not officially support home editions of Windows Operating Systems.

The message is not up to date, it should read "Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 (X64) cannot be installed on Windows 8/8.1 Core, Windows7 Home Premium, Windows Vista Home Premium/Basic or Windows XP Home Edition".

We recommend Windows Server 2012 R2 as the preferred version, but also support Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8/8.1 Pro as noted here : https://onlinehelp.coveo.com/en/ces/7.0/administrator/coveoplatformhardwareandsoftware_requirements.htm#OS

The property that is used to determine whether we are on a Home Edition is the following : https://technet.microsoft.com/fr-fr/sysinternals/aa370334

Hi,

Coveo Enterprise Search can be installed on Windows 8.1 per the software requirements documentation: https://onlinehelp.coveo.com/en/ces/7.0/administrator/coveoplatformhardwareandsoftware_requirements.htm

Do you have any error while installing it?

Hi @flheureux ♦♦, my local machine is a Windows 8.1 and when I tried to run the installer "Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 x64 (7914).exe" from a command line and as Administrator I am getting the following error:

"Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 (X64) cannot be installed on Windows7 Home Premium, Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows XP Home Edition".

Actually my machine is a "Windows 8.1"

I really appreciate your answer.
