Hi,

I have a strange error when running Firefly under Windows 2003 SBS. It worked fine about a half a year ago, but now I get this message after uninstalling and reinstalling Firefly:

Any help is greatly appreciated…..

That’s WSAEACCESS:

Another possible reason for the WSAEACCES error is that when the bind function is called (on Windows NT 4 SP4 or later), another application, service, or kernel mode driver is bound to the same address with exclusive access. Such exclusive access is a new feature of Windows NT 4 SP4 and later, and is implemented by using the SO_EXCLUSIVEADDRUSE option.

Sounds like there is something else running on 9999. Maybe changing the port to something other than 9999 will help. Should be able to do that from the tray applet.
