Trouble connecting to background service

edited February 2011 in Scanner
So I installed the addin this morning and ran it. It found a drive with issues. I removed the drive. Now the addin can not connect to the background service. Leave it for a hour and it never connects. Service is started and have restarted the server many times. Reinstalled the addin as well.

    Since the add-in came out or alpha, a number of people were having connection issues. I've been working with a couple of testers making various changes to the comm system to try and fix the problem. Among other changes there's now a new TCP based connection channel that kicks in, in case the default built in named pipes one fails. Also, there was an internationalization fix released today which had to do with connection issues.

    The latest built as of right now is 2439. If this build is still giving you trouble, I'd like to help you. Just open up a case using and we'll take it from there.

    FYI, for the technical folks, StableBit Scanner used standard .NET Remoting with IPC to communicate with the service.
