Server2.7 requires a 64-bit OS, yet the default install folder is the x86 folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Remote Utilities - Server\



while it should be the a64 folder:
C:\Program Files\Remote Utilities - Server\

Hello Gustav,

This is not a bug. We have deliberately kept the status quo. During "transitional" period (it's only in the recent version that RU server became 64-bit only after all) there may be some compatibility issues during data migration from previous versions.

OK, that explains.
But, as this is fresh install, can you confirm, that the preferred install folder should be Program Files?

Hi Gustav,

Actually, for the system and for program functionality there isn't much difference where you install it. It's only about conventions. Feel free to choose the "Program Files" folder if that works for you.

Right. Will do so.

Thanks for the fast response.
Have a nice day.
