    Description: Service 'WMConnectCDS' failed to start correctly, due to 'Init MacAddressControl' returning error '0x80040154'


    All the dependent services are running. I manually start it and it stops. What am I missing?

  • My WHS just started this error and errors for asp.net, as well as BOINC shared computing..

    My searches found a functional [ so far ] solution..

    I was going to post it but found your entry.

    Run the QFE thats stored in c:\whs\UMUPNP.EXE. That way you actually reset it to the deafult state. Worked for me :)


    This worked for me in NOV 2010 .. but other issues  like  asp.net errors recently cropped up and BOINC [seti ] quit working.
    Note this WHS just 'sits there doing it's job  and managing  AVAST! to attached client PCs.
    The only allowed automatic updates for this server are the Avast! updates, and Windows Update.
    .. troubleshooting continues on asp.net and  BOINC but 'Network Health' is ~~ Green ~~

  • I don't think most home server users would know what "QFE" means.

    Anyhow,QFE = Quick Fix Engineering, a software development acronym. This is the Microsoft and Intel term for a hotfix

    Also, instructions on how to do this might be helpful.
