QuickBooks Online - Desktop App - Windows Server 2012 Compatibility

Does the QuickBooks Online Desktop App work on Windows Server 2012? If so, is it the same install file as the Windows install (is there not a separate MSI option)?

The Online Desktop APP is only a local to any of your machines app that allows a supposedly quicker login and access to your ONLINE company file, rather than using a browser of your choice.  It has absolutely NOTHING to do with desktop versions of quickbooks and doe snot utilize any Windows server.

 

Each of your online users of your online company file can install the app on their own machines or continue to use browsers.

Thanks for the reply John - I'm aware of what the QuickBooks Online Desktop App is. It does has to do with Windows Server if it is trying to be installed on a Windows Server.  Windows Server 2012 is a version of windows for servers. The app download page currently mentions nothing about whether it is supported on that or not which is the question.

I just got off the phone with support and they said that they have heard of the Windows install working successfully on Windows Server versions, but there is no official support of any version of Windows Server, so they cannot say if all of the functions of it will work successfully or not. Does anyone have a link to a feedback request for adding official support for Windows Server to the QBO Desktop App?
