Does InstallSheild 2012 run on Windows Server 2016

My company is upgrading servers due to security concerns.  They will be moving InstallShield 2012 to a Windows Server 2016.  It is currently running on a Windows Server 2008 R2.

Will we need to upgrade InstallShield or will it run without issue?

with a quick view into the Flexera KB you can find the answer:
It is not supported. This means: it could work anyways, but the vendor did never test it. For W2k16 they say Installshield 2016 or newer.

Thanks for your quick response.  I did see that in the knowledge base.  I was hoping somebody had some experience with it.  I am having issues launching InstallSheild on that server but I don't know yet if it's an incompatibility or a problem when they imaged the machine.
