WHS 2911 Dashboard will not open following this weeks Windows updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Don't know if it is coincidental or not, but following the large number of updates that came this week, I have been unable to open the WHS Dashboard from client computer.  I click on Dashboard, get the little circle spinning and then nothing happens.  I have restarted the pc several times but it didn't make any difference.  Any clues where to look next?

    Additional info: I can remote desktop into the WHS and run Dashboard on the WHS box.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in the forum.

    Regarding the current issue, please first check if there is any error logged in the event log. If so, please let me know the detailed error log for further research. Which update was installed before the issue occurred? Have you tried to uninstall these update and reinstall them again to see if the issue persists?

    Best Regards,
