Updated PRTG on Server 2008 Server



We updated PRTG on our old Server 2008 SP1 Server (non R2)

and now PRTG is not working anymore correctly because its needs .Net 4.7.2, but that is not available on Server 2008

What is the best way to get this working again, until we have a new server installed?

Thank you for contacting us,

Based on the Detailed System Requirements The minimum version required for PRTG is Windows Server is 2008 R2. Therefore your Windows version is not supported.

The options would be to upgrade to a Supported Windows version or downgrade your PRTG in the meantime. Because the .Net Framework version 4.7.2 is required for PRTG Probes to work properly.
