Is everyone tired yet of my WHS2011 issues? I know i am!! But alas, we continue...
As you know, I just upgraded my HP EX495 to WHS2011 and I was able to connect my HTPC Win7 x64 to it, and my Mac OSX to it as well. However, my laptop I am typing on (which is the most important) is Win7 Ultimate x86 and for the life of me i can't get it to connect.
Here's what I've tried:
- I can ping and find the server just fine
- I have enabled Windows Media Center Services (both of them)
- I have disabled AV & Firewall
- Uninstalled .NET 4 framework and profile and tried again
No luck, every single time it goes through like it's installing, and then rolls back and then says the unexpected error.
I checked Event Viewer and this was the only thing I found:
Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Windows Home Server 2011 Connector. Product Version: 6.1.8800.16385. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation. Installation success or error status: 1603.
