Windows Server 2019 and SolidWorks

Does anyone know which if any version of SolidWorks will install on a Windows Server 2019 server?

 

Looking at the Microsoft lifecycle site it looks like Windows Server 2019 was released in November 2018 and mainstream support is planned through 1/9/2024. We have to upgrade our Windows Server 2012 R2 servers before we upgrade to SolidWorks PDM 2020 so I would like to plan ahead and get the longest time out of the OS as possible. Windows Server 2016 is only supported until 1/11/2022, so if we were to upgrade to it for the SWPDM 2020 upgrade we would have to then upgrade again in two years.
