Win 8.1 error - cannot start IPC server

Postby TedT » Thu Jan 01, 2015 5:53 pm

Fbackup 5.2 build 663 will not start on my laptop running Windows 8.1

When I start, I get an error message "There was an eror while trying to connect to the IPC server. Cannot connect pipe clinet. Do you want to restart the IPC Server?" I answer "yes" and restart - but get the same error.

I have tried logging in as the admin both for install and starting, no change.

Any help?
Thanks
Ted

Hi,

Please make sure the antivirus/firewall does not block fbackup.exe nor bservice.exe processed.
Put these processes in the exceptions list of the antivirus/firewall.

Hi,
Adding bservice.exe did the trick.
Thanks
