Yes, we do provide some limited support for Windows Server. Enable qWAVE for audio services. Below are the steps.

NOTE: This setup requires a system reboot (and could involve multiple reboots)

  1. Go to start > Administration tools > server manager
  2. On server manager select Features
  3. On Features > Add Features
  4. Select Quality Windows Audio Video Experience
  5. Click Next
  6. Reboot the server.

Using Amazon WorkSpaces or EC2 instances ... Video is not yet supported on WorkSpaces or EC2 instances. Audio, chat, screen share is supported with qWAVE enabled but there may be challenges with audio connectivity and disconnects.

Installation may require a longer reboot cycle (e.g. 30 minutes).
