I was upgrading my squeezebox server 7.6 on my windows home server via the whs console | Settings | Add-ins. To install v7.7 first I had to uninstall 7.6, no problem. When I tried to install v7.7, which has been renamed Logitech Server, it said it needed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) and gave a download link from the Microsoft site. To install this I did the following.
- Downloaded vcredist_x86.exe to my machine.
- I used robycopy from the command line to copy the file to a shared directory on whs. (I needed to create the directory in whs, as when created via remote desktops it did not have permission to write to it).
- From the laptop I ran remote desktops. I needed to login from remote desktops to my whs server as the administrator. I needed to launch the command line to run the installation file.
