Host service won't start
In order for Host to work correctly, the Host service must be running on the Host computer.
The Host service starts automatically when you install or update the Host. The Host service automatically starts with Windows unless you change this behavior in the Host Startup mode settings.
The Host service won't start after Host installation or update to a newer version.
- Restart the Host computer.
- (Windows 8 and 10) Go to Windows Control Panel→Hardware and Sound→Power Options, click Choose what the power buttons do and deselect Turn on fast startup:
- Make sure that your antivirus software doesn't block Remote Utilities operation. It is recommended that you add the Host to your antivirus exceptions list.
- Completely uninstall and re-install the Host.
- Make sure that the ports used by Host are not used by other software on the Host computer. See Ports used by Remote Utilities for more information.
