Power BI on server 2016

It would appear as though only servers prior and including 2012 R2 are supported to install Power BI.  Is this information accurate?   We can't install it on Server 2016? 

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55329

 

Supported Operating System

Windows 10 , Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

    You'll need
    • .NET Framework 4.5.2 or later
    • SQL Server Database Engine (2008 or later), to store the report server database
    • SQL Server Analysis Services (2012 SP1 CU4 or later), to store your data models

Windows Server 2016 is supported, it looks like a issue with our download page. I'll see if I can get it updated, thanks for bringing this up.

I also can't install Power BI Desktop on Windows server 2016 standard.

when I click on download, it opens a new page but shows nothing.

 

Is Power BI Desktop compatible with Windows server 2016 standard?

I managed to download the installer by going into language options and selecting the 64-bit installer but it won't actually install on Windows Server 2016 Standard
