Please provided Win2016 Certification for the Connect:Direct File Agent (CDFA) utility

IBM Connect:Direct File Agent v.1.4 (CDFA) has not yet been officially certified for Win2016 by IBM.
IBM Connect:Direct for Windows has been officially certified for Win2016 by IBM in the latest fixpack. As CDFA is a utility that IBM provides to be used in conjunction with Connect:Direct, CDFA should also be certified for Win2016.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we are aware of the issues with installing File Agent on Windows 2012 R2 and newer systems.  I have added a link below to a workaround which will allow you to install File Agent on Windows 2016.  FA does run properly on Windows 2016 after taking these steps and is fully supported.

    I will also accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to update the version of InstallAnywhere that we use so that Compatibility Mode wouldn't be needed in the future.  Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us.

    Thank you for your interest in this enhancement to C:D File Agent.  I am pleased to announce that we have delivered this capability in iFix 028 for File Agent which was released on 04/30/2018.  You can retrieve this maintenance from IBM Fix Central website which I've linked below.
