Add-Ins Tasks empty in WHS 2011 RC RRS feed

  • Question

  • WHS 2011 RC installed in a Vmware Workstation VM. Add-Ins tab is empty apart from one help link  - no option to actually Add an Add-In. Anyone else seeing this ?

  • Hi,

    What your are looking at is the Add-In management tab. It will show any Add-In registered.
    Add-Ins are registered by installing the Add-In form a cleints Desktop.

    To check this out you can see/try this free Add-In: AWIECO RemoteLauncher

  • But if you read the help text it says  there's an add add-in task and there is no such thing. the help is here

    http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-ca/vail/install-add-ins-2.aspx

    and the text is: (highlight is the original)

     

    To install and uninstall Add-ins

    1. Click the Add-ins tab.

    2. In the Add-ins Tasks pane, click add Add-ins .

  • Charles,

    Re-read carefully :-) I absolutely agree the help is confusing/incorrect.

    I think it is actually actually refering to add-ins that have registered to apear on the Launch pad (not the Dashboard). The Lauch pad can show an additional "Add-ins" section.

    AWIECO's WakeOnLAN for instance registers to enable WOL from the users Launchpad. In the Add-Ins section of the Dashboard it displays an additional option: "Install the add-in on computers on the network"
