Unable to install Vail Home Server Connector - "unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installed Vail successfully, used IE on a client machine to install the connector. When the wizard gets to Verifying Components, a dialogue box immediately pops up with the error in the title of the post.

    Vail - running under Hyper-V Server on LAN.

    Client Machine - Windows 7 Ultimate, up-to-date updates, formerly running HMSRVR but uninstalled connector.  Client machine also joined to a domain....

    Nothing in the client event log to speak of....

  • FYI, in case this should come up later when Vail is officially released, I found and corrected the problem.  .NET 4.0 was apparantly incorrectly installed.  The simple fix was to download and re-install the .net package, and everything worked fine.

    You should file a bug report on Connect.

    No problem.  These are the Windows Home Server forums where you can ask questions about WHS/Vail.  You can file a bug report on the same minisite (Connect) where you downloaded the beta version of Vail from.

    You can't and there's no real need to do so.
