Support Windows Server installation to allow Cloud Workstation on AWS Nimble
With lockdowns and working from home becoming the normal, studios and artists are moving their workstations to the cloud and connect from any low key laptop or computer. I routinley work like this, especially that as an indie artist it wouldn't make sense to invest in tens of thousands to purchase several RTX cards machine and instead I utilise the cloud to pay for what I use only when I am using it. The options on the cloud are much better of course.
To that extent I use AWS Accelerted Computing instances, these are Xeon workstations with 1, 4 or 8 Tesla Cardds that I can spin up and use as fluidly as using my own workstation. Netflix animation team uses same solution on AWS.
The problem I am having is that I tried to install Substnace 3D on one of those workstations, but creative cloud wouldn't allow me because somehow the condition to install is looking for windows 10 specific version or more. Well Windows 2019 Server is windows 10 for Enterprise. So would it be possible to release a patch for the Substance 3D products that will allow artists like me install on Windows 2019 Servers?
Thank you for the suggestion! I’m checking in on this with the team.

Any progress on this? Facing the exact same issue here.
Thanks Jeanette :)
Giving this another bump. I wouldn't imagine supporting the extended family of Win-10 should be an issue. It would however solve a real-problem for me and anyone who works from the cloud. Feedback?
