vatSys on Windows Server 2019

No, no joke. I run Windows Server 2019 and Vatsys currently does not allow installation on that platform, yet as you say every other VATSIM client, ATC or pilot, runs well here.
Hence, my guess is, it just needs a bit more time to widen the applicable range of platforms, it is still in public beta stage.

Well yeah, but that wouldn't be real hard to change for testing purposes. You just tell vatSys you are on a different OS than you really are. On a Windows platform I guess I'd use olly for that.

again no, you should not do that, you should respect the choice of the developer, who has decided to limit the scope of the beta testing to the approved platform
i only hope that one day, after vatsys reaches maturity, we will be given a chance to test it on other platforms and report back our findings

Your suggested path is ill advised. There must not be "workarounds" to what the intended use of software, this would immediately make any further testing effort counterproductive. The developer clearly states in the installation message not to go down that path, one must respect their choice.

Once again, it has been clearly stated above by the developer of vatSys that there are no plans to adopt the software to some versions of Windows. And we should humbly respect that decision. I hope we all finally understand and accept this simple fact as I did.

  • Why should Jake go into the effort of making consumer end software work on a server product. They're both Windows OSs but they're different. Just try using Edge without authorising a new IP every 5 seconds.
  • I'm fairly sure vatSys relies on technology that is only good for Windows 10, and even then, Windows 7 is out of its support lifecycle. Software developers shouldn't be making new software for it.
