Installation (Windows)

This guide shows how to install RPGM Server on a Windows operating system.

Windows Versions

RPGM Server has been tested on Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 and 2022 versions.


  • R must be installed using the official website. RPGM Server 2.6.0 was tested with R 4.2.1 versions but should work for all versions above 4.2.x.


The default browser in Windows Server before Server 2022 is Internet Explorer (IE). IE by default is in a "hard admin" mode with extended security features, like Javascript which is disabled by default. This might impact your experience navigating on Internet. Also, IE might ask you a permission to whitelist a website before visiting it. If you don't want to struggle with this, download another browser like Google Chrome, or turn off the IE extended security from the Server Manager screen.
