Open the remote admin tool and shut down FMS and the web publishing engine. Configue FM Server and the WPE NOT to restart automatically. Then restart the computer.
Download the FMS trial software, which will be the latest version, then edit the Assisted Install file to use your TechNet developer license code instead of the trial code.
Thanks, that was a good work around. I wonder why the Tec Net sample server is so out of date.
