Windows Home Server (WHS) is all about making the day to day care of your home network easy. When you install the WHS Connector Software on a client PC everything is set-up to automatically back up that machine each and every night. There is usually no further intervention required.
However, if you’re the type who likes the idea of managing all of your home computers on your network from one location then ASoft’s Autoexit 2008 might be for you. The everyday user of WHS will not need the functions provided by Autoexit 2008 because this is an add-in that provides advanced options such as remotely shutting down, restarting and waking up networked computers attached to your WHS. If your computers are all in the same room this add-in may not be as handy since it is just as easy to walk over to the machine. However, if you have computers in the kids room, living room and den then it might save you from walking around the house to simply restart a computer.
Installation is very straight forward like most add-ins for WHS. Download the installation file from the ASoft website and store it on your WHS at the following location: \\yourhomeservername\Software\Add-Ins\
