Why does the installation of Report Developer freeze when being installed on Windows 2003?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

This is because the version of Install Anywhere, the tool we use to install our
application, does not support working with windows 2003 and does not recognize Windows 2003 as a windows operating system.

However, we can work around this issue. To install Report Developer on Windows 2003, follow the instructions below;

  1. Right-click "StyleReport_EE_51.exe"
  2. Select "Properties"
  3. Switch to "Compatibility" tab
  4. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and choose "Windows 2000"
  5. Confirm by pressing OK


Now you can go ahead and launch "StyleReport_EE_51.exe" and Report Developer should successfully install on Windows 2003.
