After installing BLS-2022, when I start BLS-2022 a message appears saying "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect".
This message appears if you are running an unsupported operating system. The system requirements in the BLS-2022 product page do not list Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2003 in the list of supported operating systems.
Microsoft discontinued all support, updates, bug fixes and security fixes for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on 1/15/2020.
CDE Software no longer tests products on Windows 2008 Server R2 or Windows 2008 Server or Windows 2003 Server.
CDE Software released the 34.01.04 update on 8/25/2021 which has been confirmed as resolving the issue.
We do strongly encourage networking a Windows 10 computer to your scoring system network and moving BLS to the new computer. The scoring system can maintain its functionality and BLS can maintain its functionality on the new computer and exporting and importing will happen across the network.
