What are the minimum server requirements to install the Universal Forwarder (32-bit)?


Hi, we are having trouble installing Universal Forwarder (32-bit) to a server that has system specifications of:
OS: Windows Server 2008 v6.0
System Model: Virtual Machine
CPU: Intel Xeon 3.47GHz
Memory: 4Gb

It prompts an error message

"The minimum Operation system version required to support this installation of Universal Forwarder has not been met"

What are actually the minimum server requirements to install a Universal Forwarder?
