PRB - Installation of Elvis Runtime on Windows Server 2003

Product: Elvis
Version: 2.5.
Stand: 2006-08-02
Author: Helmut Hofmann

Summary

Installation of Elvis Runtime on Windows Server 2003.

Details

Elvis Runtime supports Windows 2003 Server with restrictions.

Elvis Runtime uses Falcon for accessing KNX/EIB via USB, serial or KNXnet/IP-Tunneling.  Falcon Version 1.3 does not support Windows 2003 Server in the moment and will not run on this OS.  Elvis Runtime setup will therefore not install Falcon on Windows Server 2003.

You can access the bus either via KNXnet/IP-Routing or install Falcon Version 1.23 manually (also this version does not officially support Windows 2003 Server, but behaves better).

Konnex will analyse the problem. When a new Falcon version will be available is not clear today.

If Falcon Version 1.3 is installed on Windows 2003 Server, the operating system may become unusable slow.
