I have just checked the Automic Compatibility Checker and found, that Windows Server 2008 (R2) isn't supported anymore by Windows Agent 11.x? Only Windows Server 2012 (R2) is supported. Why is this so? The OS is still supported by Micorsoft. And you support Windows 7 too, this is the "Desktop Equivalent" to Windows Server 2008 (R2).

You are right, in our compatibility checker, Windows server 2008 R2 is not supported for a windows Agent 11.X

Here is the list of supported platforms:
Microsoft Windows 7 (with Intel x64 CPU)
Microsoft Windows 7 (with Intel x86 CPU)
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (with Intel x64 CPU)
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (with Intel x86 CPU)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (with Intel x64 CPU)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (with Intel x86 CPU)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 (with Intel x64 CPU)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 (with Intel x86 CPU)

We maintain our product for Windows 7 because some customers did not upgrade to Windows 8 at time.
So it has been tested and validated on this platform.
