Windows Home Server 2011 will not install the connector on one client RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried(until exhausted) to install the WHS 2011 connector on my main client computer. Tried all the default suggested fixes. Originally could not trigger the browser DNS server address until I set my network adapter (To this machine) to a Static IP in IPv4. (On adapter & Router) Linksys E3000. One PC (Windows 7 Home Premium) did load as normal, but my computer (Windows 7 Professional) did not. Tried DNS address, IP address with no joy. Error: Cannot Connect the computer to the server because either another software installation is in progress or, restart the computer and try again.

    Event logs show nothing and I have no installs (other the connector) operating. Restarts have no effect. Any ideas are appreciated.

  • Look for c:\programdata\microsoft\windows home server 2011\logs and delete the contents.

    Also have you un-installed the old client and restarted your machine?
