2014 Workgroup PDM Server on Windows Server 2003

I am disappointed to find that I cannot "upgrade" our Workgroup PDM Server to the 2014 version on our Windows Server 2003. As one could assume upgrading a server which runs our MRP system as well as sharepoint and secure file sharing services is a huge undertaking. I would expect that a product that SolidWorks has abandoned and has not added functionality to in several years would still be able to run on older server software. This was an issue this time last year when 2013 Workgroup PDM server would not install until the issue was remedied in SP1. I guess I should have seen this coming. Now we're stuck on SolidWorks 2013 and I doubt that IT has plans to upgrade the server any time soon. Anyone have success with installing the service on a local machine and have the vault reside on a server?
