hello.

I want to download windows server 2012 standard in vmware, but even if I look for iso or installation files, windows server 2012 r2 comes out, but windows server 2012 standard does not come out well.

If you know how to download windows server 2012 standard, please share the method!

Also, is there a big difference between windows server 2012 standard and windows server 2012 r2?

If the 2012 standard does not work, I don't know if I can test it with Windows Server 2012 r2.

Please answer.

thank you

    Hi @세헌 김 ,

    Have you chanche to use Volume Licensing Service Center?

    You can download it by using the Download and Keys section.

    2012 Standard is not available in Evaluation Center only R2.

    Hi Xiaoweiwang-6128,

    My colleague has already linked you to the download location for Server 2012 R2. Therefore, I will explain the differences between Server 2012 and 2012R2. 2012R2 was a feature release and contained a number of enhancements. The following document highlights these changes:
