    Hi All,

    As title really, trying to complete an upgrade, and rather than having to re-add all clients manually, which would be painstaking in my environment, as there are a LOT of AP's and controllers to add, I wanted to download the hotfix from the following kb article:

    NPS servers in Windows Server 2008 systems cannot import configuration settings that were exported from IAS servers in Windows Server 2003 systems

    When I click the link for the download though I get an error message pop up saying 'Missing client HIP object', then when I try to request the download I don't have the Captcha thing to input the characters so I am unable to get the link for the download. Anyone able to do this for me and pop the link up here to the download? I tried searching in download centre etc but no joy there either! :-(

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Well that's annoying, after getting the file onto the server, when I try to run it then it tells me that it's not intended for this computer!

    So that kb article appears to be completely wrong! :cussing

    Is it because it's x64? Do you need the x86 version? If you find the hotfix, no problem downloading it for you.

    No, it's a 64bit version I am trying to install onto. I thought the exact same thing so had to double check. No idea what's going on. Crappy MS and their incorrect info/articles! lol.
