  • Hi Timothy,

    Clearly something is amiss. If you can confirm that on a clean booted machine trying to start a service (i.e. from visual studio or DssMe.exe) is failing - it means something may be holding a port that DssHost is set to use by default (50000). Try running DssHost.exe on a different port then.

    I.e. from DSS cmd prompt (32 bit), run:

    dsshost32.exe /p:50005 /t:50006 /m:RoboticsTutorial1.user.manifest.xml
