To get it to install on Vista 64 you need to bypass SETUP.EXE to get the connector to install. With the Windows Home Server Connector CD in a drive, open a command prompt with Administrator privileges and type the following:

Backup doesn't work (at all) for Vista 64 machines, but you can share files with other users and your XBOX 360, and that's what's important something anyway.
