Running FileMaker Advanced on Windows Server



The system requirements for FileMaker Advanced do not refer to its installation on a computer running Windows Server. Does anyone know if this is feasible?

I need to replace an aging Mac that we use for running jobs in FileMaker. It's a computer with no monitor and a number of users can control it remotely via Timbuktu. We largely use this computer to send emails via SMTP-it (plugin) and download data from Oracle databases via ODBC, and these functions would remain the same.

I'm looking at replacing this computer with a virtual Windows machine that we can control using Remote Desktop Connection. Our IT department prefers to install virtual machines with Windows Server operating systems, rather than hosting a regular Windows OS.

However, I can't find any information on whether it is feasible to run FileMaker Advanced (it would be version 11) on Windows Server 2003 or 2008.

Any comments, anyone?
