Headquarters server installation error

I’m trying to install Server Solutions on my local development computer. I have successfully installed it twice on remote servers. My goal is actually to test the postgresql database restore from a production site.

When I ran the installer, it seemed to hang up on “Installing IIS”. It got stuck for more than a couple hours (I had stepped away) so I interrupted the install. I rebooted and retried the install, but that also failed. I have the log files from both attempts, but I’m not sure what I am looking for. I can share these.

I’m guessing this can’t be installed on a windows 10/11 machine. It can only be installed on a windows server. Is that the issue?


You need a server version of Windows to install server component of Survey Solutions.

Or use Docker on Linux.
