IPC Server - Cannot connect pipe client

Postby dsims » Tue Jun 27, 2017 1:26 pm

Upgraded application to FBackup 6.5 build 373.
I now get error messages related to "connecting to the backup service"
A box comes up asking:
"Do you want to restart the IPC server?"
Answering "yes" results in same messages.
Answering "no" exits FBackup.

I tried to add an attachment of the screen print, but it would not allow me to attach a .jpg or .pdf?

Hi,

Please make sure the antivirus/firewall does not block the bservice.exe process.
Put it in the exceptions list of the antivirus/firewall.

Also check the Backup4all service from Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services, to make sure it is started and working properly.

I had previously updated to the latest level (Build 373), and then had the IPC issue.
I downloaded the complete application (fbsetup-full.exe).
I ran it.
It stated that that version was already installed - "Did I want to remove it?"
I uninstalled and then re-installed.
This seems to have fixed the issue.
