  • Windows® Server® 2022 (64-bit)
  • Windows® Server® 2019 (version 1809 or later) (64-bit)
Also run Windows Update to verify the operating system is up to date.

Open a command prompt window and run the command Winver as Administrator. The Windows version is listed in the dialog box that appears. Start Windows Update from the Search box and apply all required and recommended updates before installing any Metasys software.


Configure the Windows Firewall to ensure the ports that Metasys software requires are open.

See Configuring the Windows Defender firewall.


Follow the appropriate step:
  • If you are installing the Metasys Server software on an English language computer, skip to the next step.
  • If you are installing the Metasys Server software on a non-English language computer, you need to set the computer's regional settings and the default language used by the SQL Server database to the same locale as the site default language.

Consult the Microsoft documentation and see Installing Metasys server for a non-English locale.
