One of customers is using remote desktop services with Windows Server 2012 R2.

 

Do they have any chance of deploying our MSIX packaged app? I think they can't do anything because that is equivalent to Windows 8, right?

 

So they would have to upgrade to 2019 or a virtual Windows 10 might help them, I guess.

 

Any guidance on what the easiest path is to make MSIX work in this environment?

 

Could they use MSIX-App Attach somehow?

 

Thanks!

MSIX is only supported on Windows Server 2019 and later as the fully managed deployment stack for Servers.

MSIX app attach is a newer feature for Windows Virtual Desktop and will be supported for Windows Server 2022.

There is an option to leverage MSIX Core for these down-level OSes. MSIX Core allows the ability deploy an MSIX on earlier OSes, but works more like an MSI.
