Should Stablebit Scanner show tab in WSE2012 R2?

Question

I ran Stablebit Scanner under Windows Server 2012 Essentials and the add-in appeared as a tab within the server dashboard.  However I've since moved to Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 and installed the same add-in but no such add-in tab appears in the dashboard.  Though it does say on the website that it's compatible.

 

Did I do something wrong?  Or am I looking in the wrong place?

 

Thanks.

Miles, are you using the "WHS2011" version for the installer (should have a "WSSX" extension)? If not, then please uninstall the current version, and download the "WHS2011" version.

 

If you do have it installed, then you may want to run the dashboard in "safe mode" (aka, select "options" on the dashboard launcher, and check the "let me choose which add-is to load" option) and make sure that the "StableBit Scanner" add-in is enabled.

Drashna, yes, I've installed the WHS2011 version (.wssx extension).  When I open the Essentials R2 dashboard, it registers under the Applications tab as being installed.  However, if I launch the dashboard in safe mode as suggested, I'm prompted with a list of availabe Add-ins.  Stablebit Scanner is not among those listed.  It worked fine in Essentials, but so far not in R2.  Would prefer to use the add-in than installing the full version if possible.  Thanks!

 

EDIT: 2/25/14 - for others who may be experiencing this same issue under WS2012E-R2 OS, support just provided me a new BETA build of the .wssx that specifically addressed my issue.  Now the expected StableBit Scanner tab is available via the server Dashboard.

Anyone else having this issue, please download the latest internal beta (as we haven't pushed it out). 

But it seems that not every R2 system is affected by this issue. Only a few:

I confirm that on my new Windows Server 2012 R2 Essential (MSDN iso ITAlian) build 2968 does not apper in dashboard. Latest 2997 works.

Thanks for confirming both parts.

 

And just FYI, we are looking to push out the newer beta version out, but we want to make sure they're stable and ready before doing so.

 

Ditto.
