Good news for those of us who use Advanced Admin Console for Windows Home Server Version 1. A new version (0.5.4) is available which is a maintenance release that fixes some bugs.
Here’s what the developer Andreas Miceli has to say about the update:
“This is a maintenance release which fixes a number of minor bugs and one major bug in the update discovery mechanism which prevented Japanese and Chinese users from being notified when an update was available. In addition, a possible conflict with other AddIns has been resolved. This update improves the stability and reliability of the Advanced Admin Console and I recommend to all current users to upgrade to the latest release.”
Advanced Admin Console 0.5.4
Download Advanced Admin Console 0.5.4 and put it in the Add-Ins directory in your shared software folder. Then open the WHS Console and click Settings >> Add-ins >> Installed then uninstall the previous version 0.5.2.
After it’s uninstalled, sign back into WHS Console and go to Settings >> Add-Ins >> Available and install the new version.
Sign back into WHS Console again and you should be good to go. Go back into Settings >> Add-Ins >> Installed to verify it was installed successfully.
If you’re not using Advanced Admin Console for WHS Version 1 you’re missing out. This is one of the first Add-Ins I setup when building a new Home Server…it provides a lot of functionality to the Console.
