I just upgraded one of my computers to Windows 10 and at the same time decided to shuffle my external drives around to consolidate, organize, and back up.  I'm trying to reestablish the Emby server from a separate computer than before.  I go to the Server set up page where I can pick the type and location of the Media.  Selected the type easily.  When I go to click on the Plus sign for Media Location, it just highlights blue, but does nothing.  I have tried this from Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (new Explorer).  

 

Has anyone else experienced this?  Would this be an Emby problem, a browser problem, a plugin problem, or something else entirely?  Thanks for the help!

 

(this was a brand new today download of Emby)

I just tried a new install and you're right adding Media locations doesn't seem to work when moving through the initial setup wizard.

 

I suggest just skipping that part and continue through the rest of the setup. Once that's complete and you have the server up and running you can then go to the Library section and add your media locations.

 

If clicking "Network" doesn't work, then typing in the path manually - e.g. \\servername\sharename\Movies

Thanks. It's only affecting the startup wizard. We'll get a fix out for it. As Adrian said above you can just skip it and then complete it within the server dashboard.

Hello and thanks in advance for your assistance,

 

I recently had to do a complete reinstall of Windows 7 and now have begun the process of reinstalling MBS.  For whatever reason, after beginning the setup wizard on the localhost browser tool, clicking the "+" symbol to add media locations for my library folders is not resulting in any pop-up so that I can then link my network shared paths.  I have turned off all Chrome apps and virus blocking and have also tried running the setup through Internet Explorer. I also deleted browsing history and previous logs. I even begrudgingly installed Java to no avail.  I have checked past forum posts with similar complaints, however there never seemed to be a universal fix.  I attached an image and a server log below.

Please advise, I would really like to get MBS up and running again over the long weekend.

Tried both, same deal.  Then installed Firefox as a third resort, dialog box then finally appears.  Can you think of what adjustment I need to make within Chrome to rectify this problem?

I'm also experiencing the same issue. It seems to correspond with when my Emby Server was automatically updated to 3.0.5724.3.

it's resolved for the next release. it's also already resolved for those who install the current version fresh going forward. in the meantime you can just skip it and do it after completing the wizard.

Try accessing your Emby Server via the remote or local IP address. I found that I was able to successfully add additional media paths via this method.
