Bogus Error: HDHomeRun requires an active Internet connection for installation.

Post by nojava »

I'm trying to install the latest software update and get the following message: HDHomeRun requires an active Internet connection for installation. Please check your network configuration and proxy settings.

So my network configuration has a couple of network adapters (real and virtual) and the Installer bails calling foul.

The network is fine so I'm looking for a workaround.

Unfortunately I'm remote so I cant disable the adapters without shooting my connection.

The Installer needs an Ignore Network switch.

I've been able to download and extract the .cab but need help on a updating from the cab

PS. Windows 10 Home. hdhomerun_windows_20200907

The hdhomerun_windows_20200907 installer doesn't use the internet unless you are missing one of the Microsoft packages that need to be present on the computer.

You can download and install manually (all 4 are required):

https://download.microsoft.com/download ... OS-ENU.exe
https://download.microsoft.com/download ... st_x86.exe
https://download.visualstudio.microsoft ... st.x64.exe
https://download.visualstudio.microsoft ... st.x86.exe

Thanks Nick,
I remembered i had Teamviewer installed.
I was able to stop Openvpn and the installation of 20200907 proceeded.
