      Hi,
      thanks to this great site i have a nice 2012 installation on my laptop.
      all seems to be working fine with all the tips on here.
      but…
      I sometimes use the great FREE MiniTool Partition Wizard for split partitioning my phone SD card.
      the installer refuses to run saying that server is not supported. i also tried a portable version but that also would not start with the same message.
      there is a server version but it costs $125 so thats a non-starter 😮
      i’ve seen the workarounds for non installation of programs but this is something built into the program itself.
      Any suggestions for this?
      (I multi-boot with many other os’s so its not a real killer)

        Welcome to the forum !

        “workarounds for non installation” ???

        The usual “tricks” works by telling the program that we are running a consumer O/S (Vista / W7 / W8) and not a server-O/S.

        If MiniTool Partition Wizard doesn´t work, then why not use another program ?

        But don´t ask what you can use.
        I have no idea because i have not had any need to use anything else then the builtin diskmanager in WS2008 (-R2) / WS2012

          yes hackerman1, thats what I need to do but just before it runs. but how?
          does anyone know what the actual check is or how to tell?

          the minitool is the one i trust so another program is not an option.
          i have up to 5 partitions on my 64gb card as i also multi-boot my phone and will not take a chance with another program.
          the builtin disk manager is not much use for partitioning a micro sd card into fat32, 2 ext4, and 2 special windows mobile partitions 😉

          its not essential but would be nice to know a work around for reference if other programs complain.

                The information is already available in the forum, but unfortunately not easy to find.
                I just put it together in that small guide.
                And added my own version of the productfolder-trick….
