Installing Vail Connector software on windows XP fails with unexpected error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install Vail connector on Windows XP Professional SP3.  During install, specifically, "Connecting Computer to the Network" I get an error "faild with unexpected error."  Then it says "click ok" to roll back most of the changes.

    I have turned everything off including firewall etc. and get the same error.

  • I'm sure there's more than one cause of this message, but when I ran into it, the issue was that the SSDP service was set to disabled.

    Mine was a Win7 machine, but the WHS team did confirm that having this service disabled will cause the connector install to fail.

  • Hi timotl, thanks for the advice, it worked!  I enabled SSDP and started it and the install went on without a hitch.  Thanks for the help!

  • Confirmed. I had the same issue with an XP MCE SP3 laptop, and enabling the SSDP service did the trick.

    Thanks guys.
