Can not install Home Server Connector Software RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have WHS v1 and it has been working great for several years until recently when I upgraded from Win 8 to 8.1.

    It wouldn't perform backups and the WHS Connector software would not work. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall but now I get the error after entering the password as follows: "This operation cannot be completed at this time. Please try again later."

    I can login and use the server using Remote Desktop Connection and I can also access all my shares. At first I thought this was an Windows 8.1 issue, but my other Windows 7 PC has issues connecting using the console also with this error: "This computer cannot connect to your home server. Check your network connection." It looks like it's still doing backups of my Win 7 machine since the status is still green.

    Here is what I've tried:

    Rebooted server.

    Disconnected router, cable modem.. then reconnected router, reran WHS connector software.

    Reinstall HS connector normally and as Admin.

    Reinstall in Win 7 compatibility mode.

    Uninstalled all updates on server from October/November 2013.

    Tried to install WHS connector software from a copy on the MS WHS CD in case the copy on the server was corrupt.

    Any other ideas?
