Operating systems

Team Foundation Server (TFS) can be installed on a Windows server or client operating system.

TFS 2017 only supports 64-bit operating systems.

Earlier versions of TFS run on both 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems when a 32-bit version is available. Microsoft recommend you use a server OS unless your TFS instance is for evaluation or personal use.

TFS installations on client OSes don't support integration with SharePoint products or reporting. The TFS proxy can't be installed on client OSes. If you need to use any of these features, install TFS on a server OS.

We can provide you with earlier versions of TFS and earlier versions of Windows Servers. Please contact us for more information.
