WHS Connect Software won't uninstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • My trial period for WHS is up, but I can't uninstall the connector software from my Vista Home Premium (32 bit) machine.  It begins to uninstall, goes through a few motions, and then the uninstall window disappears, but the software is still listed in my programs.  I have tried repairing and reinstalling before uninstalling, but no luck.  Any suggestions?

  • If the WHS is still there, you can do:

    go to the commandprompt

    slmgr.vbs -rearm

    Reboot WHS ...and you have another 30 days

    PS: You can do this a 2nd time after the above 30 days are over.

    From Add/Remove programs, when after uninstaling the WHS connector software is still in the list of programs, just reboot, then try uninstalling for a second time. Worked for me when this happend.
