Will R studio Desktop run on windows server 2022?

Hello to everyone,

Will The open source R Studio Desktop run on Windows Server 2022 ?


I'm pretty sure it will.

We had RStudio desktop installed on an earlier version of Windows Server (but didn't end up using it as it wasn't required on that server).

Thanks Martin,

I also read the positive answer for W Server 2019 here:

But I would like a confirmation from a Posit person if possible.


Hello everyone,

R and Rstudio run fine, out of the box, on Windows Server 2022.

The long story:
The issue we were having:
a) in a proxyfied network environment
b) and even though we did modify "internet options --> connections --> LAN settings" accordingly
c) we couldn't install any package because all repositories were unreachable.

What Solved the issue permanently:
create 2 system variables (with the same URL:PORT as in "internet options")

variable: http_proxy
value: http://YourProxyURL:YourProxyPort

variable: https_proxy
value: http://YourProxyURL:YourProxyPort

Hope this helps,
cheers and thanks for all this work.

what did solved, but in a not sustainable way, the unreachable repository issue was to enter in the Rstudio shell, those 2 commands:
Sys.setenv(http_proxy = "http://YourProxyURL:YourProxyPort")
Sys.setenv(https_proxy = "http://YourProxyURL:YourProxyPort")
