  • KB944289 Setup Error

    Update does not apply to installed version pops up when installing Power Pack 1.


        My Home Server beta version was shut down. I had to quickly purchase my Home Server from a local computer store.

    There were remote users who had to access  my Home Server.

        Am I losing necessary features that enhances Home Server ?

  • Hi,
    did this mean you have already performed a server reinstall with the purchased version?
    If yes, it could well be, that Power Pack 1 is already integrated in your installation media.
    Which are the version numbers shown in the console under Settings/Ressources?

  • Hello Olaf,

    Thanks for your response.

    Here is the program list in the resources folder.

    Windows Home Server Console: 6.0.1800.0
    Windows Home Server Backup & Restore: 6.0.1800.36
    Windows Home Server Drive Extender: 6.0.1800.24
    Windows Home Server Remote Access: 6.0.1800.0
    Windows Home Server Storage Manager: 6.0.1800.24

       I would appreciate it if you would scout around,  as I will also do, for the answer to Power Pack 1's importance.
        
                Am I losing necessary and important features that enhances Home Server  with Power Pack 1?

        Thanks,

    This is Power Pack 1 with the most recent updates including February's QFE. This is why you cannot apply the update. Windows Home Server RTM is 6.0.1500. Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 is 6.0.1800.0. The additional numbers beyond 0, mainly .24 and .36 indicate you have the additional updates we have pushed out since we released Power Pack 1.

    Power Pack 1 is a critical update for Windows Home Server. Besides added features like Backup of the server shares to external drives also some bugs have been fixed, which may result in data loss in certain scenarios.
