Problem Installing Connector Software on Vista 64 Ultimate & XP Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install this on Vista 64 Ultimate (SP1)  and XP Pro SP3 . But it keeps telling me:

    "A maximum of 10 computers have already been added. Use the Windows home Server console to  remove a computer that is no longer being used and then try again"

    The console does show only one computer, my first Vista Box. And to get that added I had to delete my XP Laptop which I used to get the basic MediaSmart server up and going in the first place.

    Anyone run across this and find a fix/workaround?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    My suggestion would be to file a bug report on Connect.

     

    Did you install the PP1 upgrade on top of RTM?  Or is this a clean install of WHS with PP1 integrated?

    Yes I installed this on top of an already running server, the server is basically only a few days old, and the PP1 update was installed the first day it was up.

     

    You will probably need to do a Server Reinstallation.  (But I would file the bug on Connect before you do it.)
