Does Azure support client operating systems (ie Windows 7)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to setup a Windows 7 Virtual Machine in Azure and I see a list of Windows Server options, but not a plain Windows 7 Professional.

    I need Windows 7 for testing purposes.

    Does Azure only support Server VMs?

    Edit: After Searching I found that Windows 7 Enterprise N is supported.  Close is nice, but I have a hard time believing that Windows 7 Enterprise N is the most common version of Windows 7 out there.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting here.

    As of now Windows 7 and other Client OS is available only for MSDN subscribers. If you have MSDN subscription with Azure you can deploy Windows Client OS on Azure it is only for developing and test purposes.
