add support for windows server core to IBM i Access Client Solutions windows package (driver)
current situtation (working): windows server 2016 core with SQL Server and IBM i Access Client Solutions Windows driver new situation (not working): windows server 2022 core with SQL Server but IBM i Access Client Solutions Windows driver can not be installed because the installer expects a desktop edition.
All our windows servers are deployed with the core edition of windows server to minimize attack surface. Especially SQL Server benefits from this setup. All our SQL Servers use windows server core edition but now we face this problem with the IBM i Access driver.
We really need the driver to be installed on the core edition.
