PowerApps Studio Desktop on terminal (RD) servers

Is it possible to install the powerapps studio on either a windows server 2012 R2 RDS or Windows 2016 RDS?? The Windows store does not seem to want to work on the 2012 R2 server (saying it is no longer supported) and when trying to get it from the Windows Business store on the 2016 server, clicking install does nothing....


We are wanting it installed on the terminal servers because one of the developers is using a mac and so can not install the studio locally.

Hi jaylaa,


Currently, PowerApps is available on Windows Client Windows 8.1 or higher, so it might be not possible to install PowerApps on Windows Server.


I have seen a similar request on PowerApps Ideas Forum, please consider to vote and comment the idea at here. I will help collect and report it from my side.
