WHS V1 Connector Software RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need some help getting WHS V1 Connector Software re-installed onto a computer that I had to re install Windows 7 Home software back onto. I wiped the drive clean and did a fresh installed.

    Windows 7 Home Premium

    Service Pack 1

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor, 3.2 GHz.

    4.0 G of Memory

    32 bit

    Software Downloads ans install fine 


    Gets to point to enter password

    Pass word is entered and I get this ERROR

    The operation cannot be completed at this time. Please try again later

    WHS Convector is checked to ALLOW in Firewall rule - but still no go

    Firewall disconnected (turned off) - still no go.

    The computer is hardwired to the server but goes through a LINKSYS 5-port switch. Another computer is on this switch with no problem. 

    Router is NetGear N150.

    Any help, suggestions greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    which firewall do you use? If it is 3rd party stuff (anything else than Windows Firewall) try uninstalling it. 3rd party firewalls are often known to block communications without telling the user.
    Date, time and time zone on client and server are matching?
    You are entering the console password?
    If this does not help: Can you access \\yourservername\Software\Home Server Connector Software and launch setup.exe from there?
