Can the software Dreambox ReStream be installed on a Windows OS based server or Mac OSX
The Dreambox ReStream software will not run on a Windows OS. This is because of some part of the code that is executing Linux OS commands. And there are no good Windows alternatives. The native support for Windows OS and Mac OSX is dropped around the end of 2012.
In order to still have the software running, there is a Live image that can be used. This live image is Ubuntu Linux based and can be run in Virtual Box. This way, you can still run Dreambox ReStream on a Windows or Mac OSX system.
