Microsoft Forecaster 7.0 (with Service pack 5) has been tested by MSX Group on Windows 10 and  Windows Server 2012 and found to function properly (see note below about Forecaster Web Access).  In addition, we have tested Forecaster using databases on SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014 and found all operations to be normal and efficient. We have also found that Microsoft Forecaster 7.0 works properly with the latest Release Candidate for SQL Server 2016 (RC3) (Note: Since SQL Server 2016 is currently a pre-release version, features and functionality may change before it is officially released).

In previous documents on these Message Boards, we have discussed the pre-requisites that are required for Forecaster to install and run properly. Depending on the components you are installing or working with, you may need to include an older version of a SQL Server client component, but these are forward compatible with newer server versions and function properly.  Forecaster itself (as opposed to the Database Creation Wizard) does not require the older SQL Serer client bits to function.

Regarding Forecaster Web Access, the installer for the SERVER portion of Forecaster Web Access does not know how to install itself onto the newest version of Internet Information Services (IIS).  That said, the files and product pieces DO install and it is a straightforward process to configure the IIS pieces for it.  Once that is accomplished, the application runs well on this platform.  MSX Group has performed dozens of installations of Forecaster Web Access on Windows Server 2012 and we are here to help you do the same.

Forecaster is a robust, reliable tool that continues to run on Operating Systems from Windows Vista through Windows 10 and Windows 2012, supporting SQL Server versions from 2005 through the current versions.

MSX Group is here to help you take advantage of your investment in Forecaster for as long as you need. Let us know how we can help.
