How to Use the Shiny Server in Windows 10 Pro and Server 2016

Today, we’re going to take a look at how to set up Shiny Server for your Windows 10 server and make it the default.

If you’re using Windows 10 Home or Server, you can skip to the next section if you’re already familiar with Windows 10.

We’ll assume that you have installed Windows 10 Server 2016 and are already familiar, and we’ll skip to setting up Shiny server in Windows Server 2016 for the purposes of this article.

We’re also going to skip over some tips and tricks you might want to know.

If this is your first time using Windows Server, it might help to review our previous Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 articles for a more thorough introduction to the Windows Server operating system.

If your Windows Server is older than 2012 or older than 2008, you might not be ready to dive into Shiny server setup and configuration, and if you are, you should make sure you have a good understanding of the Windows 10 setup instructions and the Azure cloud.

This article assumes that you already have Shiny server installed on your computer.

For help getting Shiny server running, see our tutorial.

If not, we recommend reading our previous Shiny Server article, Shiny Server Basics for a comprehensive introduction to Shiny server.

In the following section, we’ll walk you through the setup steps and how to run Shiny server on your server, and explain how to get it up and running on your local computer.

Setup the Shiny server The first thing you’ll want to do is set up the server to use Shiny.

When you install a new service on your Windows machine, it’s not uncommon to get an error saying the service was not found.

If Shiny server doesn’t exist, you’ll see an error message that says “This service doesn’t support this version of Windows.”

You can also see this error message if you try to run the Shiny command prompt or any other command in the command prompt, such as the bash shell.

If there’s an error when you try running Shiny server, try running the Shiny cmdlets.

The cmdlets can help troubleshoot problems with Shiny server or help you troubleshape the server.

If a Shiny server is already running, you may have to do some extra work to get the Shiny service running.

You can run the following command to set the Shiny domain, which is the default value for a Shiny domain.


Domain = Windows.



Shiny domainName = Shiny.


Shared domainNameError = Windows Error code 1 If you do this, Shiny will now use your Shiny domain name.

If the Shiny services were already running on a different domain, you won’t see any error message.

You’ll also need to add a server to your Shiny server group.

Open the PowerShell console and enter the following cmdlet.

Add-SharedSharedServer -ServerSharedNameServerShinyName
