    I went out to Connect and while I see the download for the latest version of Windows Home Server, I can’t seem to fetch a new key for it.

    Also I don’t see the Power Pack in the downloads area.

    Thank you,

  3. When the beta is released, will that contain a Vista x64 compatible version of the Connector software?  If so would we download that seperately from the connect site or will the version on the \whsSoftware share gets automagically patched?

    Many thanks for all your hard work. Very excited about taking Power Pack 1 for a test drive.
