Why does "PowerChute Business Edition Server/ Console Stopped working" error message displays on installing version 9.0.1 Server and Console on Windows 2012 Server Core?

Issue:
"PowerChute Business Edition Server/ Console Stopped working" error message displays on installing v9.0.1 Server and Console on Windows 2012 Server Core.

Product Line:
PowerChute Business Edition (PCBE) version 9.0.1

Environment:
Microsoft Windows 2012 Server Core

Cause:
PowerChute Server and Console are not supported on Server Core.

Solution:
This is the expected behavior on v9.0.1. By default PowerChute Server and Console are not supported on Server Core. But on Windows 2012 Server Core, their installation is not blocked and they install successfully. After installation, the Server/ Console service is stopped as expected. This does not corrupt any data.

Note: The issue will be  fixed in PCBE version 9.1. This will not allow PowerChute Server and Console to install on a Windows 2012 Server Core machine.
