WHS 2011 Client Connector failue on Vista Ultimate laptop RRS feed

  • Question



    WHS2011 connector installation fails on an Acer Laptop running Vista Ultimate SP2, AMD Sempron 1.8Ghz, 2GB ram.

    I have found many posts on various forums concerning this problem, some of which claim to have been solved. I have tried the various claimed soultions and none have worked for me. I ha afve cleaned the client computer, removed any files in "Program Files" and "Program Data" pertaining to Windows Server, rebooted the computer and attempted another installation after trying each solution.

    These are what appear to be applicable portions of the logs that are written. There are 22 of them.

    I have not been able to find any kind of definitive solution from Microsoft. It appears that they simply do not care.
