TV Archive Service failing on Win8 CP - connected to WHS 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I connected my Windows 8 Consumer Preview PC to my WHS 2011 server (with no problems), the only issue I am having is that the Windows Server Media Center TV Archive Transfer Service won't start.  This is the error I get from Event Viewer:

    Service cannot be started. System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'ehRecObj, Version=6.0.6000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
    File name: 'ehRecObj, Version=6.0.6000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'
       at Microsoft.HomeServer.Archive.TransferService.ScheduleMonitor.Start()
       at Microsoft.HomeServer.Archive.TransferService.Service.OnStart(String[] args)
       at System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase.ServiceQueuedMainCallback(Object state)

    Has anyone run into this issue yet?  Thanks! :)

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Yes, I've seen the same behavior.  Also, search in the Guide seems to be broken; Windows Media Center is correctly selected in the Windows Search indexing options, yet no results are returned.   These two issues caused me to go back to Windows 7 on my WMC box.

  • Ran into same issue just now. TV archive transfer service won't start and leaves the same error message in the Event Log.

    Found that the version of the Policy.6.0.ehRecObj.dll in the Win8 RP system is actually 6.2.8400.0

    Could that be the issue? e.g. the archive system looking for an older version?

  • Has his been resolved yet? Is there a workaround? is there a way to point the TV archive service to use ehRecObj 6.2.x in Windows 8?
