  • Does your system have a direct connection to the Internet? Or are you going through a company network?

    Hello Sean,

    I have exactly the same problem since 2 weeks now.
    I'm using "Windows Embedded Developer Update 1.2" for WES7.

    Diving into the wedu.log show me that there was no endpoint listening at http://wedusvc.microsoft.com/service.svc

    And when testing nslookup wedusvc.microsoft.com, all I got is Non-existent domain.
    I tested the resolve with multiple DNS provider, no luck.

    Can you look into your C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Embedded Developer Update 1.2\Toolset\Embedded Tools\wedu.log file and find the IP of "wedusvc.microsoft.com" ?

    Can you also try the cmd "nslookup wedusvc.microsoft.com" and tell me if it's working ?

    Thanks :)

    RCK

  • Does anyone has news on this? For me the server is still down.

  • Something appears to be in the works. If you only have WES7 (WES8 not installed), uninstall WEDU and then re-download and re-install WEDU 1.2 - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23004

  • this 23004 link is not the same as the other link searched in google with WEDU 1.2, this file works. just my IE9 can't download it, so i have to use my Safari to download.

    i previously downloaded the other wedu 1.2 in a google search (also microsoft download site)on Sep4, 2015, and it worked till about 2 weeks ago. now this new 23004 link seems good so far.
