Plusnet Protect (McAfee) not working on Windows Server 2016 Essentials

How do I install Plusnet Protect (McAfee) on Windows Server 2016 Essentials (My Computer) as the download from the plusnet portal is incompatible.

 

Don't see why it should not work as from how see it, Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 are fundamentally the same are the Kernel level.

I may be wrong, and some more knowledgable person will correct me if so, but I don't think PN Protect is compatible with W10.

As many others have said in the past, for 99% of users, the Windows Defender (or whatever the the default AV is called these days), is better and much less resource hungry.
