      There was a topic about this issue recently:
      viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1327

      It’s about installers and Windows version checks in general, so maybe something there will help you.

      1. Download TrueImage2010_d_en.exe from http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/.
      2. Open TrueImage2010_d_en.exe using 7-Zip and doubleclick the [0] file within the archive.
      3. Extract all files to some folder.
      4. Open AcronisTrueImage.msi using Orca MSI Editor (download from this page), go to the InstallUISequence table and drop the InitCheckSubsystem_CustomAction row.
      5. Also drop the InitCheckSubsystem_CustomAction row from the InstallExecuteSequence table.
      6. Save the msi and install Acronis True Image Home on your Windows Server OS! 🙂

      I found the rows that had to be dropped just by some trial and error testing.

      Good luck! 😉

      Great job Arris. I was just going to post a tutorial with something similar except I used Universal Extractor to extract the MSI contents and then drop the rows you mentioned above.

      Thanks for mentioning the Universal Extractor tool, looks nice: supports an impressive list of file formats! 🙂 Will keep it in mind.

      I have Acronis True Image Home 2011 and edited the msi file. It starts to install, gets near to finishing, actually creates the Acronis folder, and puts shortcuts on the desktop. Then…it rolls back and uninstalls with the message:

      “The installation was interrupted before Acronis True Image Home 2011 could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again.”

      Would be great to get this to work. If not, I still have the bootable cd to backup and restore images.

      I’m getting the same message post above. Any updates as to how to get this to work?
      I really need this installed.

      Just to update I’m trying the above procedure with the 2011 version and it errors out right at the very end. I see the installer put the program shortcuts on the desktop then the installer progress bar goes in reverse and erases them and throws that message listed above.

      Orca MSI Editor is server 2008r2 best friend

      I know it was brought up back before R2… but I will bring it up again, is their anyway to trick programs/installers into thinking its Win7 instead of 2k8R2?

      Main thing for me being my Acronis TrueImage Home 2010… I dont have $$$$ to spend on the “server” version of the software, my 2k8R2 is of MSDN origin and USED as a workstation, the fact that I cannot install this really pisses me off…

      Does anyone know how to make installers/programs think its Win7?

      I could swear it was possible somehow (at least in 03/08), I just dont remember where I saw it last and my query results with Google have been unlucky 🙁

      Thanks!
