Avast Free on Win Server 2003?
« on: August 16, 2012, 08:18:52 AM »
Hi, I'd like to try out Avast on an old computer running Windows Server 2003 SP2 32bit. The installation of "avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe" did not complete. The log follows below. Is it possible to install an edition of Avast on Win Server 2003 to try out?

Thanks, but my question was also:

Is it possible to install an edition of Avast on Win Server 2003 to try out?

That is to say, is there a different edition of Avast I can install on 2003 Server as a free trial?

Cheers
