Network Server Does Not Start

Postby jpcote » Wed Aug 23, 2017 3:15 pm

Hi,

I'm on macOS 10.12. When I try to start the network server in the Phidget Control Panel, it says "Starting" and then "Couldn't start".

I tried launching phidget22networkserver from the command line and I get the following error:

ERR [netsrv][2017-08-23T17:11:19 server.c+115 processconfig()]: failed to read configuration file [/etc/phidgets/phidget22networkserver.pc]: 'IO Issue'


I checked and there is no /etc/phidgets directory. Do I need to manually create the phidget22networkserver.pc file? Shouldn't this have been done during install?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Is it just me? Is anybody able to use it on macOS Sierra ? This is a brand new OS install...

Since I was getting nowhere with this issue, I decided to call Phidgets' support. The technician already knew about the problem.

The solution is simply to untick the checkbox called "Enable User Dictionaries". Once you do that, boom!, it works:

Hope this helps someone from the future!

Cheers!

This has been fixed in the latest release.
