    On Windows 8 have Location Settings feature that allow modern app get user's current location. So anyone know how to enable this feature for Windows Server 2012?

    He's asking about location services, i.e. GPS, not how to change the language.

    Correct; I installed the Metro "weather app" and it can't find my location by itself (in win 8/8.1 it works fine even using wired connection).
    I tried the "privacy" options in pc settings but they are not available (greyed), see attached image
