dbFront sounds wonderful - just what i'm looking for - but, I'm not sure if I have the right set up to install it based on what you specify at your website.

I am currently running
Windows Server 2008 Standard

Microsoft SQL Server 2008
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 10.0.5538.0
Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 10.0.5500.0
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 6.0.6002.18005
Microsoft MSXML 3.0 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.50727.4253
Operating System 6.0.6002

I am in the process of upgrading to:
Windows Server 2016
SQL Server 2016

If your website is up-to-date, it sounds like I can't install it.... is that accurate?

Thank you (and I'll be so sad if I can't try and use dbFront!)

There is no known incompatibility between dbFront and SQL Server 2016 running on Windows Server 2016.

I will upgrade one of my servers to Windows Server 2016 and test that scenario over the weekend.

Update: I have verified that dbFront works just fine with SQL Server 2016 running on Windows Server 2016.

Wonderful; I look forward to hearing your result, and I will be back if I am able to install and run it
@robin, I created a new Window 2016 Datacenter install on Azure and dbFront installed and ran just fine.  The only adjustment I needed to make was add IIS-ASPNET45 to the DISM script.  I have not yet found out how to set up my Azure SQL server to run as 2016.
Sorry forgot to reply.  SQL Server running in 2016 works without issues.
