New Windows Home Server Update


- Advertisement -

I noticed this morning that a new update for Windows Home Server sneaked out yesterday.

Don’t worry, its not a major bug fix and unfortunately it’s not any new functionality!

It is an update to resolve a WHS Console screen resolution problem.

The update number and KB article is KB963032.


When you open the Windows Home Server Console on a home computer that has a screen resolution that is lower than 1024 × 768, the Windows Home Server console may be displayed incorrectly.


An update is available to resolve this issue. This update enables the Windows Home Server console to support low-resolution displays. The lowest resolution that is supported after you apply this update is 1024 x 600.

If you have automatic updates enable you will get it shortly, or you can force an update by going to Settings and clicking Update Now.


This update does require a reboot of your Windows Home Server.

  1. I have the 2.5 update installed on my EX470. When I installed this update, the transcoding service from the 2.5 update fails to start. I'm trying to figure it out.

    Wondering if you tried the 2.5 upgrade hack and can confirm ?

    • Hi Diehard – no, I didnt hack my EX470 in the end, I decided to wait for the official supported release later in the year. Sorry I cant help there.
