Does Lansweeper support in place OS upgrades of it's servers?

I have Lansweeper running on server 2008 R2 and I'd like to upgrade to 2012 R2.

I searched the knowledge base and didn't really see anything.

Well I did an OS upgrade from 2012 to 2012r2 with the only issue being something with the permissions of an empty .net folder.

Lansweeper support helped me figure it out.
