Does the 10 client limit include the server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, I searched around in the forums but didn't come accross my problem. 

    I have an HP MediaSmart (PC1) with 9 clients attached (PC2-10).  I am trying to add my 10th client (PC11) but get an error message that the 10 client limit has been reached.  So my question is - does the server itself count as one of those 10 client licenses such that I can only add 9 additional computers to my network?  Seems kinda odd...

    No, it doesn't.  You probably have an old client floating around in the registry.

  • Thanks, that helped.  I found a misc. reg key and deleted it.
