Running Build 1776 do I need 1800? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    As the Subject says.  Build 1776 is running great for me. Would I gain anything by installing 1800?

  • Yes, you must upgrade (or downgrade) to an RTM version of Windows Home Server to receive future updates.

  • Yes - you should move to build 1800. - there are several bug fixes that you will want. 

     

    You should get on the final release, as previous beta builds are not supported nor tested, once the final release is made available.

  • Thanks ... uninstalled pp1 build 1776 and installed build 1800.  Hope the trouble with movies freezing up that build 1776 fixed don't come back.

  • If we have been running 1776 (the beta of PP1), do we need to uninstall the 1776 before installing 1800 (the official public release) or can we just install Build 1800 over the top of 1776?

     

    Even if we don't "need" to uninstall 1776...should we do so anyway, or has build 1800 been designed to replace/update all files intalled by 1776?

  • You have to uninstall 1776 and then install 1800.

  • Along the same lines--but not mentioned anywhere I can find--if we have the 1771+ Client Connectorware installed, uninstall or, once 1800 is on the server, allow the Client Connectors (1771+) to identify the later Client Connectorware and go from there?

  • If you have configured your clients to upgrade the connector automatically, they should do so shortly after you install 1800. This will involve a restart of the computer.

    Just to confirm. I have been running PP1 beta since it was released, including updated connectors on both XP Professional 32 bit and Vista x64. I removed the pp1 beta from my home server, installed pp1 RTM, and after the home server restarted both XP and Vista automatically updated their connectors Smile.
