Hello to all.
As Windows Server 2008 R2 is equivalent to Windows 7, why FreeFileSync is refusing to run?
Can this be fixed in a later version?

Thanks for the reply.
That is not at least a Windows 7 system.

I suspect you have compatibility mode settings applied to the executable (of Windows < 7).

No my friend... Nothing is checked to run as in
earlier version of Windows.
OS is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, version 6 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2).
I think that the developer must correct OS version check and include Windows Server 2008 from SP1 and up.

You are right. SP2 is not R2 as in link disgussion.
SP2 is like Windows Vista, R2 is like Windows 7.
But file system managent is the same, why?
Thanks for everything...
