    After sucessfully installing;

    Apple Bonjour 1.0.4
    Firefly svn-1948

    on my home server I downloaded the add-in for WHS and installed it, however ever though it claims to be installed it does not add a tab to the console or an option in the settings window.

    not sure how I could have gone wrong. Any suggestions welcome.

    I realise it’s probably work in progress but the screenshots are so lovely 🙂 hehe

    Hrm.. I’m not sure what to tell you. I dropped it in add-ins, did the install, reconnected and it was in settings.

    Have you looked at the event log on the machine? Perhaps there is something helpful there?

    I can’t see anything that might be helpful, there does not appear to be any errors regarding firefly, infact the only event I could find that included the Add-in was the following;

    I don’t have the addin showing also. Do you have to install the firefly program first? or just the addon? I have never used it. And were can i get the program?
    thanks

    you will need to install the program also which you can get at http://fireflymediaserver.org/ it would be a good idea to read the wiki instructions for the right build etc

    I have found so many different downloads.. one called : fireflysetup.exe and I have another called : Firefly Media Server (svn-1696).exe

    also the docs say to install: BonjourSetup.exe

    Hi,
    Have installed the Add-In, and it’s showing working just fine.
    However, if, when the Firefly page is up, I click on the Server page and select the Web Administration button, a DOS box pops up. In it, it says “not enough memory for this operation”. If I then close the DOS box, there is a flash, and every item in the Console window disappears. Everything apart from the box outline and the heading “Windows Home Server”. The console has to be closed from the red X and restarted.
    This is repeatable every time.

    Have you installed firefly first?

    You’ll need to install the win32 build of firefly at the console of the whs before installing the add-in.

    rpedde,
    Evening,
    Yes, firefly installed fine, and is working across the network as a server – Wife’s iTouch picks it up and copies from it – the only glitch, was the one mentioned. I guess the answer is: don’t use Web Administration!
    I’m in the process of rebuilding the whs over the holidays, so wil try it again, in the New Year.

    Regards,

    Colin

    Oh. Duh. Should have picked that up. Yeah, I guess the moral of the story is “Don’t Do That!”.

    Not entirely surprising it wouldn’t work from the rdp session, but you should still be able to get to the admin page with http://server.ip.address:9999 from your remote machine.

    I haven’t looked at this for a while, been busy IRL, but i can certainly take a look at any problems people have reported and can give me reproducable steps for…

    btw. the web administration page works fine here when i am connected to my WHS console and via RDP

    Also, i am now in a position to look at creating a WiX based installer for the whole product (i.e. the actuall Firefly Media Server software and the WHS add-in) however, i’m not sure how the dependancey on Bonjour is gonig to work 🙁

    btw, the main reason for no settings tab being displayed is an exception occuring in the WHS add-in whilst it is trying to locate the main Firefly server and config file.

    Currently these are assumed to always be in

    C:Program FilesFirefly Media Server

    if your’s are not here then the WHS add-in is currently not going to work for you, i’ll work on this 🙂

    Nic,
    I’ve figured out what happened:
    Between installing the software and my ‘error’, WHS downloaded and installed IE7 and it’s updates.
    I assume this is what caused it, as when I uninstalled Firefly and then re-installing, everything worked fine.

    Many thanks for all your work,

    Colin
