Cannot access the media streaming settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials server running on a Seagate NAS-server. I have downloaded and installed the "Windows Server Essentials Media Pack". Because I don't use this pack after all, I want to stop/remove it.

    If I use the Essentials Dashboard and go to "Settings", and select "Media", I get the below screen after a few seconds:

    Some history: Because of the issue with creating/renaming folders on a network share (see here), I had disabled/stopped the "Windows Search" service. Because the "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" is depending on it, I also disabled/stopped that service, otherwise I get continuously "Autostart" errors in my Health Report.

    I thought that the above error might have been related to the fact that I disabled/stopped these services, so I started them again, and rebooted my server. But that didn't solve the problem.

    - I waited a few minutes and tried again
    - I restarted the server
    - I don't know what add-ins I should uninstall, as I don't have any more add-ins
    - so I contact product support (I assume that Technet is a good start for this, right?)
