      WGS Forums Will Close on January 31st 2017   01/18/17

      Hi everyone, We're coming up to We Got Served's ten year anniversary and I've been taking a good look at the site to work through some plans for the future. I wanted to give you all a couple of weeks notice that I'll be closing WGS Forums at the end of this month.  As you'll be aware, the forums were opened to support Windows Home Server users and have done so brilliantly, thanks to everyone's participation. However, with each day that passes, there are fewer and fewer WHS deployments out there, meaning that forum registrations and traffic has now dwindled. I've tried a few times over the years to test some forums on related or adjacent topics, however, they simply haven't caught on. It's clear that these were always going to be predominately Windows Home Server forums and, with the passing of that platform, they've served their purpose well. So, please take some time to archive anything you need over the next two weeks. Access to the forums will end on Jan 31st 2017. Many, many thanks once again for your participation and support here. It's been a great community! Very best wishes Terry

  1. Hello All, I am attempting to add a W7 64 bit client to my WHS network. I am using 32 bit v1 Power Pack 3 on my server and was able to access it from the new client using the server:55000. It uses the Connector software and downloads the console software and when it tries to install gives me this error: Unsupported 16-bit application The program or feature "\??\C:\Users\Rob/Appdata\Local\Temp\WindowsHomeServerConnector\SetUp.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit compatible version is available. I have tried to find a solution for this all night. From everything I've read I thought if PP3 was installed that would take care of any 32 bit 64 bit issues. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Rob
  2. I just changed ISPs from Hughesnet to Verizon and had to change routers from a Buffalo Airstation to a Cradlepoint MBR1000. This new router allows me to plug my USB modem and hard wire my desktop computer. After making the change, I noticed the WHS icon on my desktop computer was grayed out. I then learned that I could not access the WHS Console and get the message 'This computer cannot connect to your home server. Check your network connection and that your home server is powered on. If your home serve has recently started, try again in a few minutes.' The odd part is that I can still access the contents of my server through the mapped network drives as well as remote in to the desktop. My laptop which is wirelessly connected to my network still allows me to access the console. I have tried resetting the console, rebooting the computer, router and server. WHS is recognized by my router and assigned a static local IP address. Any ideas or thoughts about what might be causing this would be appreciated. Thank you
