Does it works also on WHS?

Hey mates,

this little program seems to be a smart solution for many MCE users who has bought Linksys extenders.

My question is can i install this application on Windows Home server? I don't wanna keep a PC always powered on... if yes i will keep the Media center directly and avoid the problem.

 

Thank you best regards

Hi, not sure.  Unfortunately I don't have WHS to test.  I can't see any reason why it would not work.  If you try it let me know how you get on.

Cheers, Al

Hi Al,

first thank you for your help.

The problem is that WHS cannot recognize the setup file as a compatible software... All I must do to install a working add in is to move the file in a particular Folder and enter the remote console to start the setup. But in the console the file isn't visualized.

All the working WHS add in by the way are always *.msi files...

I can only suppose that the msi files you have compiled is a bit different from the usual recognized from WHS... Is it possible?

What do you think?

Thank you very much, bye bye

I just posted a message on thegreenbutton.com and got a response that asm495 is using it on WHS.  See http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/p/77923/389267.aspx#389267

I'm sorry but unfortunately I am not much help, as I don't have WHS to test. 

Are you able to open a remote desktop session and run the msi file from there?  I would expect it should then install as a normal windows service.
