SCM Next installer is shipped with both a 32bit and 64bit exe in one package.
On Windows Server 2016 it won’t run SCM Next correctly in 64bit and the app will show only a white screen.
Steps to fix:
- Run App with proper and full UAC permissions.
- Launch SCM Next using the 32-bit emulated Command Prompt.
- Click Start > Run, and enter:
Command Prompt should open.
Now type the path to SCM Next executable. (Default install location can be found using the SCM Next shortcut on your desktop)
Why this works:
WOW64 is the x86 emulator that forces SCM Next to run its 32-bit version.
For some reason the 32bit version runs correctly on Windows Server 2016 but not the 64bit version.
