Hey Guys im at my wits end with this issue and have scoured the internet to try and find a fix and nothing has worked. Everytime I use the http://"Servername"/connect to install the software on my windows 8 PC i get the error

Iv'e tried everything. A fresh install, Port forwarding my router, Making sure UPNP is enabled on it, The Microsoft fix of deleting registies seen here: Link (Althou i dont have the registry "PendingFileRenameOperations" Mine is simply "FileRenameOperations") I can see the server on my network locations as well as can Remote connect to it. I just cant get the software installed so i can back up. Im at a loss can anyone help?


Im running Windows 8.1 on the client side and the server is running Windows Home Server 2011

HA! Got it! Anyone else having this issue try uninstalling Intel Smart Connect. Little bugger!
