Cannot install client connector software using the trial versoin of WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot install the client connector software on my Vista laptop.  How do I get it to install?

    I can download the Connector Setup Installer from //server:55000.  But during installation it never gets above 0% downloaded until it finally fails with an http error.  I followed the procedure in this post but it didn't help.

    All firewalls are turned off.
    I can remote desktop into the physical home server.
    I am using the evaluation version of the WHS that I downloaded on 4/24/09.
    Thank you.

  • Which version numbers does the console show? (in Settings/Ressources)
    Can you attempt the installation running setup.exe from \\server\software\home server connector software?
    Which version of Vista is on the client - 32 or 64 Bit?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by the console.  Then I RDP into server it says "Evaluation Copy Build 3790 (Service Pack 2)" on the desktop.

    32bit Vista.

    Running the installation running setup.exe from \\server\software\home server connector software seems to have fixed it. Thanks.
