Can I install PCBE on Back-UPS-XS-1000VA on Windows Server 2012?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/4/2012


I hear that the personal edition is very SSD unfriendly, becuase it has a lot of write cycles that go on and I have a Samsung 840 128GB SSD drive. I do not want to deal with too many I/O writes like the personal edition has.

I hear that the business edition is easier on SSD drives and I was wondering if I can install it and it would work with the OS and the UPS I have.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

you may run into issues with shutdown timing since the delays in personal edition may not be adequate for a server class OS shutdown. then, generally the software does not uninstall properly I find.

Unfortunately you cannot install PCPE with a smart ups or PCBE with a back ups. PCPE is designed for back ups and PCBE for smart ups. Also, we don't officially support windows server 2012 for PCPE as it's not a desktop operating system, although that doesn't necessarily mean it won't work.

This is a hyper-v lab machine. I was able to get PCPE installed in Windows Server 2008 R2 though. Hope this works. Thanks for the response.
