Can't load WHS Console locally or remotely RRS feed

  • Question

  • No matter how I try I cannot load WHS Console anymore. If I double click the icon locally nothing seems to happen but if I look in Event Viewer I get the following error....

    EventType clr20r3, P1 homeserverconsole.exe, P2, P3 49ed39c1, P4 whscommon, P5, P6 46e0a59c, P7 30d, P8 2f, P9 system.typeloadexception, P10 NIL.

  • It possibly could be an addin causing your issue.  If you open up regedit, then go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\RegisteredAdditions.  You could export this key (just to make sure you can revert back), then start deleting each entry, try opening the console, then go to the next, etc.

  • Did you disable thw Windows Firewall on the home server? If I remember correctly, this is the symptom together with an installed WHS Toolkit.
