PC server update and synchronization
Please do something with the server updater on the PC. The user is informed that the update is available. He downloads the new version, clicks to install and sees that he should manually close the app, like in 2004. The app icon is often not shown in the tray, but it is set to be "always shown". He uses Task Manager to close the current instance.
Installation proceeds. The user is informed that he has to wait a minute
The minute takes about 10 minutes. Then he is informed that he has to restart the whole system (like in 1998!!!!). Another 20 minutes to restart a well-organized PC.
The user tries to find the manager, it was always in the Program Files as a .html file. The file displays a blank white screen. At last he finds the recently used Manager in the browser history.
Reloading remotes takes a second, but not all remotes are shown. He notices that all custom remotes are backed up in the Backup folder. He copies the remotes to the correct folder, reloads the list and almost everything is found.
Then he runs the Android app. Auto reload is active, so immediately the remotes are synchronized. But again, some remotes are not displayed. In the Manager he sees that there are some errors in the logfile. He fixes the errors or removes the problematic remotes.
Now Android sync again
15 minutes passes and still the same message. He needs to search for server, although it is the same PC. After some time both computers are connected.
Four hours passes to see the remote he is developing to test it on Android.
Wow that is not how the installation process should work. This is how it normally works.
- User get a notification and clicks on the notification to download the latest server (latest server skips this step and auto downloads server)
- User go through the installation process this normally takes about 1 minute not sure why it takes 10 minutes for you. (Latest server do this in the background on restart of computer)
- Installer askes for a restart to make sure that the driver is updated properly.
- User starts unified remote on computer or it's autostarted after restart.
- The standard remotes should all work if you get any issues with these please let us know. If you have broken custom remotes there is not much we can do.
- Tips for quicker sync is to reselect the server in the list of servers.
So í have to close the unified Remote server to upgrade the unified Remote server.... But with the unified Remote server closed I cannot control my pc to upgrade the server.....
I have to agree with the above.... Is this 2004?
@ClintonHammond Some things need to be closed to be able to update like the driver. There is no program that do not require it to close at some point during an update. And in the latest version it is done while you restart your computer.
Everything was working after the last reconnection, for about two months. Yesterday I decided to update the Android app. Since then I cannot connect both devices. I have rebooted both Android and Windows.
The PC manager says that everything is working properly, the log displays no errors.
However Android says only "Could not sync", "Connection problem", "Remote not found" etc. The saved server is stored in the Android app and no new servers found.
I want to ask if there is everything correct with the connection ports. Have they changed? Should I re-install the server?
I restarted the server again and it could not start at all this time (ports in use).
What should I do now?
Replied to myself a day after:
Before you get out of yourself, break your Android into pieces, check if you are connected the the proper WiFi. Something stupid and malicious disabled WiFi in the general system settings. Everything works.
