Many of our clients want to build the infrastructure for Blue Prism into their existing IT environment, which is often Server based only.  They do not run any Windows 10 or Windows 11 VMs, so they want to build Server OS machines for the runtime resources.  

We have successfully used Windows Server 2012 and Server 2016 with Desktop Experience as runtime resources.  These were supported according to older documentation.

Currently, it is shown that Windows Server is not supported at all for Runtime Resources.  I raised a ticket about it, and they say Windows Server is not supported, although it might work.

It would be very useful for there to be support for Windows Server OS for runtime resources, as a number of our clients are reluctant to build Win 10 or Win 11 machines, and we have successfully been using Server 2012 and 2016.  As these versions are getting quite old now, I would like Server 2019 (and newer versions) to be supported.
