Unable to connect to Windows Home Server/ Mediasmart EX475. Message: DoTask.exe not found.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am unable to connect from my PC (Vista64/WHS v3.0/ MSS EX 475.) Message: DoTask.exe not found....

    It has worked fine for months

    I can connect from my laptop no problem.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled connector on the PC but with no change.

    Can anyone help?

  • That's a component of the HP software. You can blame your AV for the problem, probably. To repair, I would remove all WHS software (including HP's add-ons) from the affected PC, then reinstall from the server: http://[server]:55000.

    For more information see this page in HP's MediaSmart Server support area.

  • Thanks. I will do that with fingers crossed!

     

    In the program list to uninstall I seem to have only:

     

    HP Mediasmart Server 3.0 Update1 (x64) - 7.88mo.

    Where are the others i.e.the connector?

  • The connector will be listed as "Windows Home Server Connector", and the HP software should be listed as just "HP MediaSmart Server", I believe.
