Cisco Security Manager and Windows 2012 R2

I'm trying to evaluate Cisco Security Manager 4.7.  I was given a Windows 2012 R2 server to install it on but now I see that the CSM installer fails and tells me "Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter is not supported".  Windows 2012 Datacenter 64bit is supposed, and R2 is barely any different so is there a way to get the installer to bypass this check?  I will be delayed another month on this eval if I have to go back and ask for a different OS.  There's got to be a config file in the installer or registry setting I can modify to get this installed.


Thanks for the help

I figured this out on my own

I figured this out on my own -- change Compatibility mode of the installer to be Windows 8 (which is same OS version as Windows 2012) and it installs just fine.
