It appears that access to our servers at id.remoteutilities.com is being blocked by Malwarebytes. However, we've noticed that some of our users have already submitted this False Positive to them and the Malwarebytes team has responded that this will be fixed soon in their next database update. Please also see this post on the Malwarebytes forum.
Zach, please note that we've already responded to the ticket you've submitted. However, meanwhile please try adding the DNS name id.remoteutilities.com that points to our Internet-ID servers to an exception/allow list and see if this helps to resolve the issue.
I have noticed something that sounds like this problem. My office is in California, but I am currently in Indiana helping a client get a new server installed. I use Remote Utilities to keep connected to all clients from my office in California and via my laptop when traveling.
I am using Remote Utilities PRO v188.8.131.52 and on my office system (in California) I can load the Viewer, but there is NO LIST of systems... and on my laptop (in Indiana), I get a 'EReadError' or 'Stream Read Error' and NOTHING shows and the Viewing Form does not fully render itself.
These issues with your Viewers might be occurring due to the Viewer's configuration file being somehow damaged/corrupted (for example, by some antivirus/firewall software activity).
Please, try the following: 1. Fully exit the Viewer File -> Exit. 2. Locate the file config_4.xml in the C:\Users\[Your_username]\AppData\Roaming\Remote Utilities Files\ folder. Please note that the AppData folder might be hidden by default in which case you need to enable "Hidden files and folders" in Windows Explorer settings. 3. Remove the config_4.xml file from that folder. This will reset the Viewer settings, i.e. your address books won't be affected by this action but you will need to register Viewer with your license key once again following this guide.
However, since you have mentioned that your address book connections are also missing on one of your Viewers, please try restoring the address book from an automatically created backup file by following this guide. Please note that the automatic daily backups for address books are enabled by default and include the general (default) address book as well as any custom address book that was added to the Viewer. All backups are stored in the following location: C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\Remote Utilities Files\backups\.
In case if resetting the Viewer's configuration file does not help to resolve the issue, please also try fully uninstalling Viewer as described in this tutorial. After uninstalling please reboot the Viewer PC and try re-installing Viewer from scratch. However, before uninstallation please make sure to copy a backup of your address book from the folder listed above, so you can restore your connections later.
Last but not least, in case if you have any antivirus/firewall software installed on your Viewer machines, please make sure to add the Viewer installation folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Remote Utilities - Viewer\* to the exception list to avoid similar issues in the future.
Thanks, Pauline! I followed your instructions on the laptop that I am using on my Indiana trip and was able to completely resolve the problem. I also appreciated the included explanation and description. It helped to fully understand the factors that contributed to the problem.
