Does All Software Run on Windows Server 2016 as It Does on Windows 10?

Both regular and server versions of Windows can be installed on virtual and dedicated servers.

When migrating to a server version of Windows, consider the configuration and software compatibility differences. For example, for Windows Server, you need to install the server version of the antivirus. Also, server versions of Windows have more stringent software installation requirements.

In general, Windows Server has broader options for configuring and administering the server. But it is more difficult to configure, and the license is more expensive. In order to switch to the server version, it is recommended to first install it on a local computer or virtual machine and test it with all the software that will be used on the server.
