I'm unable to install Dashboard or SDS on Windows Server

Last Updated: Oct 24, 2016 10:49AM MDT
Have you recently attempted to install the latest version of Dashboard or Solstice Directory Service on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 2012 R2 and received an error?  A missing required Windows component, Quality Windows Audio Video Experience (qWave), is likely the cause.

qWave.dll is a required DLL and is part of the Quality Windows Audio Video Experience component that is installed by default on desktops but is disabled by on Windows Servers.

qWave can be added in a number of ways:
 

  1. Through the Add Features interface by selecting the Quality Windows Audio Video Experience component
  2. By running the following command in a command prompt: Servermanagercmd –install Qwave
  3. Via the Services interface by enabled Quality Windows Audio Video Experience

Regardless of installation method, after installing qWave, restart your machine and rerun your install of Dashboard or SDS.
