Error Installing Windows Mobile Device Center on Windows Server 2008

If you try installing Windows Mobile Device Center on Windows Server 2008 then you encounter a generic error message saying:

The Update could not be installed because at least one windows component requried by Windows Mobile Device Center is missing.

The Resolution is simple. Install the Desktop Experience feature from the Server Manager --> Add Features. Windows Mobile Device Center requires Media player which gets installed using the Desktop Experience Feature.

Other Things which get installed using the Desktop Experience Feature are:

  • Windows Calendar
  • Windows Defender
  • Windows Messenger
  • Windows Mail
  • Windows Media Player
  • Windows Photo Gallery
  • Sound Recorder
  • Disk Cleanup
  • Sync Center
  • Character Map
  • Scanners and Cameras
  • Video for Windows
  • Windows VISTA Aero Theme
  • Three dimensional screensavers

    It gives Windows Server 2008 the look and feel of vista. Be prepared to restart the server for the updates to come into affect.
