No I didn’t have the “Open Console Fullscreen” button. After the installation, I still had the “Install SheelInABox” button, as if nothing had been installed. I started Putty and ran dpkg –get-selections | grep „shellinabox“ and it returned nothing. So I guess it did not install…
In the meantime, I ran Putty and installed libnet-ssleay-perl and libio-socket-ssl-perl (in order to be able to watch some https podcasts on the LMS) and after that, it seems I was able to get the Remote Control to work!! I am sure the installation of the 2 SSL packages is unrelated to my original issue, but I thought I should share it with you in case it helps understanding the original issue.
FYI, I had to install the Logitech Media Server (LMS) several times before I could get it to start. I am wondering if this could have messed up some packages in my system, which would then prevent the Remote-Control from installing properly. Installing the 2 SSL packages later cleaned up the system, which is why the Remote Control is now able to install… Just a theory (trying to help in case others are running into the same issue)…
Anyways, it works now.

I am new to the Max2Play experience, and I enjoy it so far.
However, I would be curious to know if anybody has been able to install ShellInABox recently. The Remote Control plugin was added successfully to my M2P Web Interface, and when I push the „Install ShellInABox“ button, the installation seems to run smoothly and report success; but when I hit the refresh page button, as suggested, it keeps showing the „Install SheelInABox“ button (instead of the expected “ShellInABox is installed”) and the ssh-console window is not shown.
I am running on Windows 10 Pro in Chrome (also tried Edge or IE Explorer); my board is RPi3, with a 7 inch touch screen, no extra audio card (yet). I have tried updating Max2Play (from the Settings/Reboot) page but it did not help. As suggested in one of the messages above, I also tried to „Force Update to latest Beta for Max2Play“, but that resulted in my system not being able to boot properly (I was suddenly asked for a password during booting, and Jive Lite would not start!); so, I ended up reinstalling MAx2Play from scratch. I also searched the forum, but could not find any hint on this topic (except this thread).
