  • Is WHS accessible from a Windows 7 PC?
    Are there any upgrades that need to be made to WHS or special software for a W7 machine?

  • I can access WHS easily using an old 1.4ghz 512MB laptop I installed the RC version too.  I installed the connector software using the browser address trick rather than with a DVD but otherwise worked for me without hitch.  YMMV.

    Pushing buttons...randomly

    Although not officially supported yet, yes, it does work.

    WHS will officially support 7 when Power Pack 3 is released (which is in beta right now).  You can download the beta from Connect if you're interested.  Once it's released, there will be an update for your Home Server Connector software (and, if you use it, the Media Center Connector software as well).
