New Tech Brief for Windows Home Server with Power Pack 1 Helps You Share Media More Easily


If you have a shiny new PC running Windows Home Server (or an old PC you've refurbished for Windows Home Server) that includes Power Pack 1 (get it here ), it's time to grab a new version of the Windows Home Server Technical Brief for Media Sharing from the Microsoft Download Center.

Version 1.1 uses the Word 2007 .docx format, so if you're not running a .docx-compatible word processor, you'll need a copy of OpenOffice 3.0 , or you can add the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats to Office XP or Office 2003 installations.

So, what's new in this technical brief? Changes include

  • Revised instructions for browsing for photos, music, and video from an Xbox 360; you now use My Xbox instead of the Media blade in the Xbox 360 Dashboard
  • Simplified instructions for creating playlists on Windows Home Server and for working with playlists you created before moving music to Windows Home Server.
