FMPA16 install on Windows Server 2012R2

We are rolling out a new server installation for FMS16.  This is a virtual machine that is running Windows Server 2012R2.  Part of our standard FMS install is to install FMPA on the same machine for quick repairs etc.  I just got the clean OS install from my IT and before we installed the server I thought I would install FMPA 16 on it. 


When I try to install I get the message


"You cannot install or uninstall FileMaker on this system.  Please refer to the system requirements in the installation instructions for more information."


Check the specs on-line and I see that for the OS no sever OSs are listed.


We have a FMS15 on Windows Server 2012R2 and were able to install FMPA 15 on it with no issues.  Any thoughts or experiences from other out there?  Thanks is advance.
