Windows Server on Azure Issues

New Contributor

Whenever I spin up a Windows Server data center I have issues using the CLI to download/install and cannot install most things using Internet explorer. I cannot install Edge or IDEs etc. This may be a simple thing as I'm new to this. I try to get WSL downloaded through the cli and it will not work. I turn off the ie advanced security settings in Server Manager so I do not get issues with that security pop up every time however I seem to be missing something here. I was expecting a similar experience in this respect to something like Windows 10. Are there some dependencies required to use a windows server vm in azure normally or some security settings I need to turn off? Am I using the wrong image?

I'd try asking for help over here in dedicated forums.
