Problem with R3

I'm sorry, I don't know enough Spanish to answer your question. As I understand it, you had R2 and you installed R3 but it does not work. What is not working? Can you include some error messages?

Use httpreserve

You need to use the httpreserve command-line tool to reserve a port for use by DSS. Please look in the RDS documentation for more information.

No sure of status

Sorry, I do not monitor this forum regularly. I spend most of my time in the Microsoft RDS Forums.
