WHS "..Cannot Copy.." Error when installing MyMovies AddIn RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have scoured the web for help but cannot find the answer to this one. 

    Environment: I have a WHS HP EX490 & I'm trying to install the AddIn for My Movies for Win Home Server. My Client Machine is Win7 and I'm the Admin

    • Have downloaded the zip file from MyMovies.dk for WHS to my Win7 Client machine
    • Have extracted the zip file on my Win 7 Client machine to a seperate folder
    • Have logged into the WHS Mgmt Console
    • Opened the Software/Addins folder
    • Copied over the extracted MyMovies install file
    • Go to Settings, AddIns
    • I can see the MyMovies Addin underthe Available Add In's
    • Try to Click on & Install the MyMovies Addin (in the Available List)
    • Consistently get the "..cannot copy... please contact the Add In author..."

    I have tried deleting the add-in from the software/addin folder, going through the process again, + Signing out of WHS mgmt console, signing in again, rebooting the PC and the WHS.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm running out of ideas.

    Thanks for your help.

  • May be a stupid question but are you sure you actually copied the installation file (rather than creating a shortcut)?

  • Thanks Philip.  Yup, I copied the actual file.

    Any other tips would be appreciated.
