Hyper V: Integration Services for Windows Home Server 2011 VM?

Q: Hyper V: Integration Services for Windows Home Server 2011 VM?

I have created a Windows Home Server 2011 VM as a guest OS inside of Windows 10, which is the host OS. The VM is working and the networking is working (whew!). But I cannot figure out a way to get the integration services working. I've already selected Enhanced Session Mode in the Hyper-V Manager and Guest Services in the Integration Services portion of the VM settings. Can someone please provide me with a clue on how to get this working?
Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Hyper V: Integration Services for Windows Home Server 2011 VM?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is there any way to update the Hyper-V Integration Services to 6.3 on Windows Embedded 7 (Windows 10 Pro Host)? 
I am attempting to setup a virtual machine with a Windows 7 Embedded image to test software and deployment strategies. The integration services were updated by Windows Update to version 6.1.7601.17514. This causes version mismatch errors with Windows 10
Hyper-V. However all attempts to update the Integration Services have failed. More recent versions are not displayed in the available updates under Windows Update. I have attempted to install the integration services using the methods described here:
and here:
The "offline installer" for the integration components located at "https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3063109/hyper-v-integration-components-update-for-windows-virtual-machines"
appears to be compatable with every edition of Windows 7 except embedded.
Oddly, when I use the latest vmguest.iso to install manually, the installation completes with no error, but the Integration Services are still at 6.1.7601.17514.

I added an existing .VHD (XP SP3 guest OS, which I originally created in Virtual PC 2007 running on an XP SP3 host OS) to Hyper-V via the Hyper-V Manager. It worked fine, except, I have no "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk" option in the Action menu, so I have no video, sound, or network drivers in the guest OS. I've already uninstalled the Virtual Machine Additions package from the guest OS (which is Virtual PC's version of Hyper-V Integration Services), rebooted, as well as deleted and reattached the .VHD from Hyper-V Manager several times, to no avail. There is no VMGUEST.ISO file in my Windows 10 System32 folder either, so I can't attach it to the guest OS's virtual DVD drive manually.

I wish I could just have Virtual PC back. Even if I weren't having this particular issue, Hyper-V looks like a downgrade to me, at least with regard to what I use a virtual machine for. Virtual PC's keyboard shortcuts are better, the shutdown options are better, and the methods of attaching disc images are better. Hyper-V does seem to have plenty of powerful features that Virtual PC doesn't have, none of which I care about though. I only use a virtual machine as a sandboxed test bed for potentially malicious software and websites, and once I have the guest OS configured the way I want it, I always revert it back to that clean state when I'm finished. Virtual PC was perfect for this, and I doubt highly that there is any real reason why it can't run on Windows 10. In fact, ... Read more

A:Hyper-V: No "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk" option

Hi MaximRecoil, welcome to the Ten Forums.

All integration components are included in Hyper-V, there is no separate integration setup disk available. The full integration is called Enhanced Mode and it is only available for Windows 8 and later, Windows Server 2012 and later and Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS Linux guest operating systems. The Enhanced Mode adds for instance audio and video support.

For the network issues, Windows XP requires a so called Legacy Network Adapter to be used on guests. Using the legacy adapter Windows XP has fully working network connections. About setting up a Windows XP guest in Hyper-V, see the tutorial (Part Five is about XP / Vista virtual machines): Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Running legacy Windows guests (as your Windows XP guest) in Hyper-V is best done using the Remote Desktop Connection instead of the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection application. Simply allow remote desktop connections in XP guest and use RDC to connect to it to get full audio and video.

Hello guys

I want to install a Windows 7 VM with Hyper-V, but I could not find the item "Insert Integration Service disk" in the Action menu of Hyper-V console.

Now my Windows 7 VM looks ugly with no Aero effect and screen resolution is not autoscale.

Where can I find that disk? If I remember correctly, back to the day of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Hyper-V still has that option.

Thanks for your help .

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

Although this is not related to the Windows 7 OS, I do have a question regarding the Windows Home Server 2011 software. I have bought this software online today and was wondering if anyone has used it and/or has had great success with it. I was thinking about running it and deploying its features/functions across my network through a virtual machine. Would this be a good or bad idea? Essentially, the VM would only be ran when a network machine was needed. The alternative was going to be using an XP tower that's about 6 years old and I don't know if I would trust it on for 12-24 hours because of its age.

Any suggestions?

A:Windows Home Server 2011

Cody, Windows server 2011 is a subset of server 2008. It works fine as it will allow you to backup your local machines and allow the sharing of files. It should be on a separate machine that is on all the time. Not a VM as that would not be as reliable as a separate computer.
Just install it on a separate machine and make sure that the ventilation is good.

I see Windows Home Server 2011 is $52.99 on Amazon, while Windows 7 Home Premium is $99.99. I understand generally that the two versions are targeted for
different uses, but ..... what's wrong with using WHS 2011 on a workstation/PC?
Is WHS 2011 missing important features for normal PC users? Thx, Gus

A:Windows Home Server 2011

It is missing some features, but mainly the compatibility will be issues. It is a server OS, meaning you'll need server-compatible system utilities. WHS is also designed to be headless, and managed remotely.

The main point is, if you go to the store looking for a hammer, don't buy a screw driver just because it's cheaper. Use the right tool for the job.

I recently read the following about Windows Home Server 2011

..... Microsoft announced that they are removing Drive Extender from the next version (Version 2) of Windows Home Server 2011. Drive Extender is a critical piece of technology that allows you to easily add more hard drives to your server, have a single pool of storage for all your data, and it provides for data redundancy - so if one hard drive crashes, your data is kept on a 2nd hard drive....Click to expand...

Can anyone confirm whether the above statement is correct/incorrect?

The report does not state whether "Drive Extender" is to be replaced by newer functionality, it simply states that this functionality will no longer be available in WHS.

My own view of WHS was that the functionality provided by "Drive Extender" was the heart of the system and in fact the primary purpose of having another layer of OS functionality in addition to the local layer (e.g. XP, Vista, W7).

I am confused as to what the purpose would be of installing WHS if it did not have "Drive Extender" technology. Am I not understanding something of basic importance here


A:Windows Home Server 2011

Pretty sure I can confirm that. I beta tested most of the WHS versions and I did get an email straight from the WHS Manager a few months ago saying that they were going to do that. I think with the advent of really cheap Terrabyte hard drives they no longer felt Drive Extender was needed.

I had heard a rumor that 3rd party developers were going to write their own add-ons to work like Drive Extender.

I have installed WHS 2011 several times onto 2 separate Sata HDD's and received the same random BSOD on both installs. 0x00000019 BAD_POOL_HEADER

Ive ran a full chkdsk on both the HDD's I have and also ran memory tests on the 4GB of RAM I have with no errors.

I have an unknown device that is not installed correctly in device manager a media audio controller.

The RIG im using is a HP workstation xw6200 which shipped with XP installed and runs fine but still has the unknown device in device manager.

I have tried to DL the drivers from HP website for the vista 64 bit version for the audio drivers it supplies but they do not resolve the unknown device, that doesnt really matter as Im not playing sound from my server anyway, just thought you would want to know in case its whats causing my problem.

This problem happens randomly whenever it feels like and whether the RIG is logged into the admin account for the server or not.

I remember reading a fix for windows server 2003 for an NTFS corruption but im unsure of whether this will resolve this issue?

I have attached my dump files in the zip so if your into it and can look through it then please tell me what I can do to fix it.

If you want anymore info let me know.

So, I'm doing the preliminary work to potentially replace an aging file server that I currently have in my house. A few days ago, I did the research on simply doing a NAS device (like the NetGear Ready NAS Ultra 2 Plus) and am generally pretty happy with what I have found. Now, I am considering the alternative of using something else like Windows Home Server 2011 and giving it a fair shake.

My original goal was to have something
1). Simple...didn't really want to have another system to maintain
2). Inexpensive....I don't need astounding performance
3). Quiet and Low Power Consumption
4). Data Protection is important, although I will back up regularly and keep offsite.
5). Offer DNLA support for streaming to devices like my PS3 and Xbox 360.

I'm starting to reconsider the use of the NAS device, as the RAID 1 will cost me 50% of my usable space. With something like Windows Home Server, I can choose to NOT duplicate some of the non important stuff (Internet downloads, ISO's...all that stuff that I can simply re-download in the event of a catastrophe)...and this means that I will have more disk space usable within my server.

Originally, when Windows Home Server came out, I was very excited about the Drive Extender technology that allowed for easy drive pooling..but then Microsoft decided to discontinue DE for Windows Home Server 2011. From what I have found, there are 3rd party vendors out there, making Add-In support that seems good (StableBit...I te... Read more

A:Considering a Windows Home Server 2011 Build

Y'know - I went down this path 6 months ago. Eventually I ended up on Windows 2008 R2. The main reason instead of WHS 2011 was that I also run WSUS, Coldfusion, Firebird DB Server, and IIS. WHS was not the right choice.

But, I was previously running on Windows XP, and it did everything I needed. The only reason I upgraded to Win 2008 R2 standard was so I could take advantage of more memory.

I have a Technet subscription so cost of the OS was largely moot.

My system has 7 x 2TB WD EARX SATA 3 drives ($400~), though I don't have 7 SATA3 ports, so some of the drives are running at SATA 2.

I settled on an Intel I5-2400 CPU ($177), which is only marginally overclocked, 8 GB Corsair CL7 1600 MHZ memory ($69), on a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3R-B3 mobo. I put in a GTX 450 1GB Video card ($80), because I had it lying around, and there is no Video on the Z68X mobo ($149). The case is an Antec 900 - 2; Only because I like that case, it costs $90 and its easy to keep cabling tidy and with 7 drives I was worried heat would be a problem. As it is, temps are running at 27C most of the time. All fans are set on low speed, and I'm running a stock cooler.

The PSU is an ANTEC Truepower 750W ($132).

The system costs approximately 8 cents per hour to run. (Given that we pay 26.5c per Kilowatt)

The Z68X only has a single Gigabit NIC. On reflection, the only thing I would change is running two NICs. I have gigabit cabling and switches throughout the house, so I could have improved overall per... Read more

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

I have been given a PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
This was a client PC from a small old Windows Home Server 2011 system which has now been dismantled as the server PC failed.
My unit works fine but I cannot remove the irritating Server client items from it - Launchpad and Alert Services etc etc.
Have looked everywhere on the disk but cannot find any uninstall file anywhere.
All the relevant files seem to be in the ?Program Files?, ?Windows Server? , ?Bin? folder but nothing found there. No separate uninstalling prog will work either.
Have considered starting up the PC in Safe Mode, physically removing the Windows Server folder and contents then running a registry cleaner to tidy up the loose ends.
Am concerned that this might make the PC unstable so ask if anyone has any useful suggestions. For now I have worked through the Start Up process and inhibited the ones considered relevant. Also CCleaner has stopped the Launchpad.This has worked but would like to permanently remove the unwanted items.

A:Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software

No one has supplied any suggestions as to my programme removal so decided to risk it and do it myself as described.
Backed up whole HD plus registry, restarted in basic Safe Mode then physically removed all traces of WHS 2011 in file system.
Emptied Recycle Bin then restarted as normal.
No disasters occurred so used CCleaner and Advanced Uninstaller PRO. They mopped up the loose ends and everything seems to be fine now. Job done!
I suppose the same process could be used for most difficult to remove items.

Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me, as CRM is new to me. My company recently migrated to the "cloud" with Office 365, Sharepoint Online, and just now adding CRM 2011 to the mix, hoping that we can use CRM as a "Helpdesk" application, using the queues and cases.

My question is this - How can I integrate these two online applications so that emails received to our "Support" email address will automatically be received into CRM, sent to a queue (aka "Unassigned Cases") and from there, matched to a contact (or tagged as "unknown" which would require a manual matching), and finally have a case created and attached to that particular contact?

I have contacted Microsoft Support regarding this, and they keep mentioning something about an "Email Router" that we would be required to have in our office and running 24/7, in order to accomplish this. But there has to be a way to do this without the email router, because we are using Office 365 for our email.

Has anyone been able to successfully implement a "Helpdesk" environment such as this through CRM and Office 365, without the use of an email router?

Well, you must have a bootable Windows 8 DVD or USB. Go to the BIOS settings, select to have the DVD or USB device as first device. Then it should say "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." if you have a DVD or it will show the OEM or Windows logo directly (USB). When you are prompted for the installation type, choose Custom. Make sure you have backed up your files. Delete every partition of Disk 0 and then choose the Unallocated Space to install.

Emergency Management Services is a new feature in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 that supports remote management and system recovery for servers that are not accessible through a conventional connection. By using Emergency Management Services with other software and hardware components, you can remotely perform tasks such as recovering unresponsive servers and powering servers off and on, even when they are not accessible through a standard network connection. Emergency management services also supports headless servers—those without a local keyboard, monitor, or mouse. This document provides an overview of Emergency Management Services and its components. It explains how to choose and configure hardware and software that supports Emergency Management Services. It provides guidance for enabling Emergency Management Services, and information about using this technology to troubleshoot problems with remote servers.

have certain network drives setup for each user account

I have a vm with win 7 guest os that i can not install integrated services on
the option to install it is not in the action meny. have read a lot of post on the internet but nothing seams to help.
have logged on as admin on both the host and guest.
even tried a offline install but the folder that the instructions told me to use was empty (windows system32 vmguest)
right now i connect through a legacy adapter and have installed over 200 win updates,

my host os is win 10

It gets installed and updated through windows update now. My experience is I didn't get the update. If windows update doesn't work, you can download the cab for the update and use "pkgmgr /ip /m:<path><file name>.cab /quiet" on a admin command prompt. It will require a reboot.


its a cab file

EDIT: of course I meant windows update in the guest Windows 7 VM. I just did this myself for the same reason.

Hello All,

I am new to this forum. It seems like the place I need to come to for a fix.
First I have an updated antivirus but it did not catch either of these nasties.
Both were encountered about one week apart while browsing the web, as far as I can tell I am pretty sure it was pages I go to usually but in both cases I saw a Java Sun logo appear but was not quick enough to kill the process before it did its job.
First Windows Repair, I managed to get my pc back to working order, more or less that is.
I then contacted the support of my antivirus (Panda) and they had me run some scans and collect information but I am still waiting for other steps 7 days later.
I have several executables that have appeared on my desktop. I have deleted some but they seem to be coming back so I have left the last ones on. They are all named null0.randomnumber.exe. I have sent one of them to Panda but they did not say anything about it, even after I specifically asked.
Windows repair messed with my user profiles. Start menu programs are mostly gone (but still in C:\program files). Favorites for my user have been switched for the All Users favorites but still in the profile. System Restore cant restore successfully to any restore point. Also the QuickLaunch keeps deleting my Outlook shortcut.
Ran all the scans i could think off (Malwarebytes, Panda local and online and a few more).
So yesterday (while still waiting for word from Panda) I got XP Home Security 2011. The Sun Java logo came on as we... Read more

I recently replaced our Windows Small Business Server 2003 with a Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials server using the same domain name and same computer name. When I tried to join an existing Windows 7 Professional computer to the new domain,
i kept getting trust relationship errors. I logged on to the workstation using a local login and rejoined the domain but now all the items on the desktop have disappeared including the connection to Windows Live Mail. Can I restore this?

According the issue, I suspect that your machine created a new user profile in this case. The user profile path is stored in registry, here
is the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList(check the picture).  Please check the value of ProfileImagePath.

Also, please take a screenshot of C:\Users and post is here.William Tan

One thing I miss from Linux distros like Ubuntu is the ability to use the OS's built-in file browser to connect to remote servers and file shares through SFTP, FTP, samba protocols etc. Right now it seems the only way to connect to SFTP servers from Vista is by using programs like WinSCP. It would be really great if there were some power toys or the like that would include this functionality within Windows Explorer. Does anybody know of any such tools?

The Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) architecture is flexible, pluggable, and easily adaptable, allowing for a modular approach to building your Web site; for example, you can exchange outdated or under-performing modules for a preferred, more dynamic solution. In Integration Techniques and Strategies for Content Management Server 2002, we’ll examine a variety of integration options available to you when designing your Web sites. The methodology we present is simple, secure, and extendable. We take the WoodgroveNet sample site which shipped as a sample with MCMS 2002 and build integration components to show integration with search engines, workflow engines, authentication systems, and other software. Some techniques and strategies include:

Using the MCMS .NET-based managed APIs
Using the MCMS COM-based Site Deployment API
Creating user controls and dialog boxes within the Web Author
Creating custom placeholder controls in Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET
Creating components that communicate with each external system

You'll find that the integration components add many new features to the WoodgroveNet site, including the ability to search, extend the publishing workflow, change the authentication schema, add content such as Flash, and manage resources outside of MCMS.

Hello, I have installed hyper-v on a lenovo thinkpad t470 (and tested this problem on 3 other t470 thinkpads). The thinkpad has: a) an Intel RJ45 adapter b) a Sierra wireless adapter EM7455 c) an Intel wireless 8265 adapter Hyper-v does work correctly as long as there is an RJ45 Ethernet cable connection plugged in (and connectivity). When you remove the RJ45 connectivity it instantly disables the wireless adapter (intel 8265), whatever you try the wireless adapter remains unusable. As a test, I also upgraded the intel 8265 adapter to an intel 9260 adapter ... but the problem remains. I have to say that they both use the same intel driver. If you try to enable the device in the computer management console, it is instantly disables it again after a few seconds. This seems to be specifically related to the lenovo t470 laptop as we don't have that kind of problems on other laptops. I also tried to enable/disable some BIOS options etc ... Has anyone experienced similar issues or has any ideas how to solve the problem? I would really appreciate some help as I have absolutely no ideas ... what else to try. Here was my original post in the Microsoft forums ... but that didn't help either: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/939f4a3b-9d3e-4f10-8384-189d952a4b5e/hyperv-...

Last week the spouse's desktop was infected with the "XP Home Security 2011" virus. After several false starts removing it I followed the bleepingcomputers.com removal instructions (Edit registry, run RKILL, download Malware Bytes) first under an Admin ID, then under the infected user ID.

It disappeared but then started having AXWIN error on svchost.exe, svchost abends, svchost looping, and the occasional random infected webpage popping up. AVG Free would block websites being accessed by svchost process.

After websearches downloaded SUPERAntivirus Software (SAS) and it found 2 virus files that MB and AVG didn't. Trojan.Agent/GEN-IEXPLORER[fake] and Trojan.Agent/GEN-PEC. During the removal the PC halted, rebooted, and infected with "XP Recovery Virus" after logging it on.

Rebooted into safe mode, ran MB and removed the virus. Virus gone, but still have problem: booting onto user ID produces a blank desktop, access to only "Accessories" and "Startup" Folders, IE, Outlook, Remote Assistance, and Media Player from the all programs window. Even in safe mode on the Administrator these are the only items. However MB finds all the directories on the PC during the scan.

Running a full SAS scan right now. I suspect either registry problem or a directory problem.

What next to do?
