Advanced Admin Console AddIn: Version 0.4.0 Beta now available for download

May 1st, 2008

In this release the following features have been added:

  • New Statusbar displaying current folder location and server uptime
  • Shutdown and minimize buttons in status bar
  • New setting for enabling/disabling the display of the shutdown button

Here’s a screenshot of the new release:


The minimize button was added so you can minimize the console in case you have launched a program that sits in the background and is inaccessible to you. To get back to the console simply double-click the minimized window’s title bar.

Clicking the shutdown button in the status bar will bring up this enhanced Windows Home Server shutdown dialog:


The Advanced Admin Console adds a Log Off button to the shutdown dialog. It is useful if you connected to the console from a client computer and have started up a couple of programs from the Advanced Admin Console. Clicking the Log Off button will close the Windows Home Server Console and all programs that where launched from the console are closed as well. Please keep in mind that the enhanced shutdown dialog is only available from the Advanced Admin Console’s shutdown button in the status bar. The shutdown button from the settings dialog will still display the regular shutdown dialog.

    The admin console works fine, but will not allow me to see my other built in console apps (e.g. backup config). Seems to be locking the menu strip. Am running Beta 0.4 version. Going to Customize settings to uninstall it does not work.

    Great addin!

    one problem though, the uptime does not change from when it was first loaded/displayed.
    the only way to refresh it is to restart the advanced admin console by logging out and then logging back in (logging out using the new log out button and not just closing the WHS console)
