After upgrading to Windows 8.1, you may find your Windows Home Server dashboard no longer works. The solution for me was:
- Uninstall the connector.
- Open a command prompt and run ipconfig /flushdns.
- Reinstall the connector by going to http://[WHSname]/connect.
However, in my case I would get an error “Cannot connect the computer to the server because either another software installation is in progress or, the computer has a restart pending….”
Try restarting. If that doesn't solve the problem, a registry key needs to be deleted.
- Open regedit.exe.
- Navigate to
- Delete the key PendingFileRenameOperations
