Windows Home Server Users Beware

It seems that the folks at Redmond are having a hard time getting WHS to play and get along well with a myriad of problems. Among them are:

  • Photoshop Elements
  • Zune Software
  • Apple iTunes
  • TagScanner
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Intuit QuickenMS Digital Image Library
  • MP3BookHelper
  • ACDSee
  • WinAmp
  • Windows Media Player 11
  • Microsoft Office Excel
  • Visual DataFlex
At this point I'm advising WHS users to hold tight and wait for a fix. If you are a WHS user and use any of the above programs, don't open them until the bug is fixed. You risk datat corruption and headaches and that's the best you can hope for currently.

  1. Hi: Thanks very much for your posting, but I would like to add that I am a Visual DataFlex Developer and have a number of my applications in VDF running on a Vista Home laptop with no problems.

    One thing to note is that Visual DataFlex applications can rely on registry settings which were allowed prior to the UAC [ user access control ] imposed by Vista and the blocking of access to the registry can possibly cause error messages but not data corruption.

    If you have concerns about this please contact me directly and we can converse.
