Whenever I need to enter Remote settings from Viewer and at the end you have to Press OK to restart the remote host, it never restarts successfully, it always needs to be manually restarted either by the client rebooting their PC or opening Start Host or using an alternative remote desktop program to Start Host. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm using the latest Host, Viewer & RU server as of this writing.
I sometimes have the same issue when upgrading host's or changing host settings that require restarting the host. It varies from PC to PC & I haven't isolated the cause yet. I use two different remote programs as a precaution & make sure I'm logged in on my secondary program before doing any host upgrade or host restarts. In almost all cases rebooting the host computer will auto-start the host with Windows, if this is your only option I'd recommend scheduling a system restart in Task Scheduler to occur just after you upgrade or restart the host on remote machines.
Is there a way to use the Task Scheduler to auto start the host? I thought I saw a guide to do that somewhere & I can't find it now. I'm having problems with a client's host not starting now after a W10 upgrade. Tried reinstalling the latest host version & verifying service is set to auto on the admin account. Also sometimes when doing a simple upgrade the host fails to start afterwards & requires manually starting the host. If there was a way to Task Schedule host to automatically start if crashed that would help. I never upgrade a client now unless I'm connected on my other remote program in case I lose the host during upgrade.
