Workaround for Transact 4.5.0.2:

There is a compatibility issue with SQL Server 2008R2 (shipped as a part of Ephesoft Transact installer) on Windows Server 2012R2, Windows 8 or higher version. For information regarding Windows OS and SQL Server version-wise compatibility, please refer to the following Microsoft article:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2681562/using-sql-server-in-windows-8-and-later-versions-of-windows-operating.

However, there is a workaround provided by Microsoft to make Windows Server 2012R2 (and Windows 8.1) compatible with SQL Server 2008R2. This can be done by installing an additional Service Pack. You can find all the required information here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/sql/general/sql-server-windows-8-later-versions

Note: Microsoft SQL Server 2008R2 is not compatible with Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016.
