I am struggling to install FMS12ADV in Windows 7 Home Edition and it goes to certain level and hangs. I am attaching the docs that I have for the installation and no where it mentions about Windows 7 or 8. It mentions about Windows 7 Professional.
The server 12 requirements explicitly mention Win7 Prof. You can not expect FMSA to work on the Home Edition.
Your subject should read "Windows 7 Home Edition does not support FMS12ADV".
Windows Home edition lacks many of the network packages that are included in Pro. Server obviously needs some of those packages.
You are right, what to do. I hate MS
