Zune software on WHS 2011? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way of installing Zune software on WHS 2011?  I see several threads about installing it on WHS v1 but none on using it with v2.
    When in doubt empty the magazine...

    1. From a command line, run zunesetuppkg-x64.exe /x. Then give a location
    to extract files to. C:\ZuneTemp
    2.  Browse to the \packages folder. 3. Right-Click on Zune-x64.msi and click Install
    Number 2 Should be "Browse to the x64\packages folder" though given that
    WHS 2011 is x64 only, I figured that would be self-evident.

  • Doesn't work.  The Zune install package doesn't give an option to where to install it to.  I used the 'Run' command and tried from the command line in powershell.  Neither would let me run the installer.

    It does work. The install is silent in that you won't see any UI giving you
    any options.
    You may need to start the install from an elevated command prompt.

  • Okay I tried this again just now.  It begins the install then fails due to non-spported OS.  When you download the Zune software there is no, 'zunesetuppkg-x64.exe'.  Its just, 'zunesetuppkg.exe'.

    Then you've downloaded the wrong version. You've downloaded the x86
    version. You need to download the x64 version.

    If you actually follow the instructions this works.
