Why can't I download multiple files from WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have this same problem on multiple Vista computers when trying to download more than one file (of any type, mp3, photo, etc.) from WHS with Power Pack 1 installed:

    * If you try to download the files to a self-executing *.exe file you get this error when you try to execute the downloaded file:

    "This self-extracting file is part of a multidisk file. Insert the last disk of the set."

    * If you try to download the files to a *.zip file you get the following error when you try to save the file:

    "The data area passed to a system call is too small"

    Multiple reboots of the server and the Vista machines has no effect.  If anyone knows the cause and fix for the problem, your help would be greatly appreciated!!
