Windows Server 2008 Crash

Is Windows Server 2008 supported by InstallAnywhere 2008? When we try to run our installer on Windows Server 2008, it crashes immediately after the "InstallAnywhere is preparing to install..." dialog reaches 100%.

A dialog appears that says "LaunchAnywhere has stopped working". Below are the problem details reported. Attached is a screenshot.

I also got same crash reported .... I will bet on the fact that this is a debug version of windows 2008 server as all reported crashes have the same:

"OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.274.10" (I got that as well).

It works well on other windows 2008 servers.

While Windows 2008 debug version is not something the average user has (obviously it comes from an MSDN) there is no reason for which IA installers shouldn't run... I think a bug should be filled for this issue!

I can't get any InstallAnywhere to work on the MSDN Debug Version of Windows 2008 Server R2. These posts are from 2009. It's 2013. Has a solution arisen?
