Cannot connect pipe client.

Post by bimbot »

After installation Backup4all version 9.8 I only see the message:
Cannot connect pipe client. Do you want to restart the IPC server?
If I choose yes, the program restarts and the problem persists.
If I choose no, the program shuts down.
I tried turning off the antivirus, it didn't help.
I tried uninstalling Backup4all and reinstalling as a clean install. That didn't help either.
Could someone help please?

Please make sure the bservice.exe process is not blocked by the firewall. Put it in the allowed applications list.
Then check if the "Backup4all 9 service" is started and running in Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
