WHS Beta 3 Install

    Question

  • I was unable to install PP3 Beta. I double clicked the "install.cmd" file as instructed but nothing happened.

    I am using PP2 trial version.

    Will PP3 Beta install in the trial version or only in the retail version?

    Thanks,

  • Ken,

    With your comment that it should install on the trial version, I tried it again and it worked.

    Thanks much

  • Given the trail and OEM version are two different packages, I doubt it.  You can't even upgrade the trail using the OEM activation key.  Someone more knowledgeable than me can confirm, but, don’t get your hopes up high.

  • Yes, Power Pack 3 beta will install on a Windows Home Server trial installation. Can you give us more information?

  • Ken, thanks for the reply.

    I just noticed that I had to have PP2 version 6.0. I have version 5.

    How do I get version 6. I cannot locate it in Windows Update.

    Thanks,
