WHS Connector Upgrade Not There RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WHS keeps alerting my Windows 7 laptop that a WHS connector upgrade is available.  When I attempt to install it I get an error.  The error has everything to do with the fact that the directory that the connector upgrade is supposed to be in doesn't exist on my laptop.  How can I rectify this?

    Secondly, where can I find the connector software?  I checked the Shared Folders>Software>Windows Home Server directory.  There is a connector installer here but it is for the Power Pack 1 connector and I am running Power Pack 3.

  • There should be a folder on your server: \\SERVER\Software\Home Server Connector Software , which contains the most current connector software. If it doesn't, it's possible that at some point you removed this folder, or moved it, or restored an old backup of the software share which overwrote the newer version. This FAQ describes how to recover the folder if it's missing; possibly that will help.

    Before you do this, however, what are the version numbers shown in the console, Settings tab, resources view, for the Windows Home Server components?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
