IIS Media Services Comments

WMS has been "retired" by MicroSoft!

about IIS Media Services · Oct 2016 ·

The official link is dead! It takes us to MicroSoft's official site and shows a download of a PDF informing that they retired this obsolete server. However, it is this software which is mentioned but rather Windows Server - the OS!

Hi there.

I have just updated the link and the description: Windows Media Services was not supported on Windows Server 2012 and it was replaced by IIS Media Services.

Thank you for reporting :)
