Plan to drop ThingWorx support for Windows Server 2016

No ratings

ThingWorx community,


As part of a continuous re-evaluation of our third-party software requirements, we regularly add and remove support for versions of operating systems, persistence providers, and web browsers.


On this note, for the ThingWorx release after 9.2 (currently targeted for the end of CY 2021), we are planning to end support for Windows Server 2016. Already five years old, this product has generally been replaced by Windows Server 2019 in common usage.


As per Microsoft’s published lifecycle, this version will be going out of "Mainstream Support" approximately one year after the aforementioned ThingWorx release. PTC will continue to support Windows Server 2019 for the immediate future, and will consider supporting Windows Server 2022 once it becomes Generally Available (GA).


Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Windows Server 2022 GA date was in September 2021. Still the compatibility matrix for ThingWorx does not show support for Windows Server 2022 ( )

Why is Windows Server 2022 not supported?

I suggest to create a ticket with support and ask there for a timeline.
