Cannot install Connector RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was running the Vail Beta but since the Beta Refresh came out, I needed to change the Connector as well. So I uninstalled the older Connector, and accessed my SERVER/connect folder in IE8 -- and ran the install.

    I get a message window that says Automatic logon is enabled and the wizard may overwrite the password for the automatic logon of this user. It then asks me to ensure that automatic logon is disabled -- clicking Yes brings up a tabbed dialog box called User Accounts where the only options are to remove the user, not the password -- there's a huge disconnect between these two successive dialogs. I did not read it well and clicked Remove by mistake assuming I was removing the automatic logon! And then I could not boot into my system (not Server) since there was no user! Luckily I could use System Restore.

    What changed so much between Vail Beta and Vail Beta Refresh to cause this -- and I still haven't been able to install the Connector -- the system where I am tring to install Connector is Windows XP SP3.

    Have a great day.

  • When the Automatic Login message came up, followed by the user accounts window, all that was required was to tick the "Users must use CTL, ALT Del to login to the computer" tick box. This would have disabled automatic login.

    Once the connector has been installed you can then re-enable the automatic login if required.

    This is exactly what was needed on my autologin win 7 media centre machine.

    I have not has any issue's installing the connector on any of my machines recently but there certainly plenty of people who have not been so fortunate. There a several threads here that give varies idea's to try. I can only suggest that you have a search for them.
