  1. OK - I imported the admins registry node like you said, but it still keeps asking. Nothing different is happening.
  2. Just did a fresh install on a fresh Windows 10 machine. Installed as regular user and gave proper permissions during install. When logged in as regular user, it starts up when the user profile is loaded, but it always asks for the admin password. What is happening here? Why need to enter admin password each time? Seriously?
  3. Same here. Completely F%^& the install. Nothing happened after I entered admin password for windows 8.1 x64. tried to reinstall. nothing. broke. Help. But this worked. Come on btsync gang, do you think we can get the installer correct next time? Huh? Please don't do this again ...
  4. Ok ... I am getting things figured out: 1) Do not pair (link) your Android device. Because then it will share the access to sync all your folders from the Host Device (PC/SERVER/ETC). Just set it up as a new device and then create the sync folders by scanning the barcode on the Host device. 2) The LINKED DEVICES works well. It definitely makes it easier to get several computers all in sync. 3) There is still some strange behaviour: * On Android, make sure to open each share and select "sync all". Otherwise it will not sync anything. * On Host. Check the ".sync" and make sure that when initial sync of Android occurs, that the BT SYNC does not inadvertantly delete files. For some strange reason, I noticed my entire DCIM content went missing and it was all in ".sync" as arcived (trash!). SO O moved it all back and it seems OK now. I like the ability to pause specific folders. When I do video work, I don't want it trying to sync constantly and this feature helps.
  5. I have to agree withe above. I installed Syn 2.0 on my Android and then after linking with my desktop it did nothing. It brought me back tot her link device screen and sat there... And the desktop upgrade was weird too. It should have properly cleaned up the old installation, then upgraded. Nothing in the email said to even click ont he btsync key file, which was the only way to change it to pro. I don't get why this release is so buggy. Did no one test it? As it stands, I'm all unsynced and screwed up now.
  6. I found that when the Plex tab is open in Chrome, it blocks the pending request for some reason. When I close the Plex tab, then the approval message pops up. Could have something to do with the Plex/Chromcast ports/connections? Hope that helps in some way ...
  7. OK. did that. It still closes quite fast. Shows the syncing rate and then dissappears. Yup. Still does it.
  8. I backed up sync setting, uninstalled, reinstalled, restored settings ... still does it. I also did system restart between uninstall and install. ??
  9. Yes, it goes back to the desktop. It 'minimizes' so to speak - stays running showing icon on notofocations bar at top. But the sync window abruptly closes for no reason.
  10. It stays on the top notifications bar, so it does not crash. But it suddenly closes its own window. I have turned BTSYNC sleep off, it still does it. I am on the latest update.
  11. So .. I open the app on my Android. Then, just a few seconds later it sleeps. Repeat cycle. Sometimes it stays open longer so that I can actually do something useful. Other times it sleeps prematurely again. It is inconsistent - sometimes interrupts me with "insta-sleep", sometimes it waits a reasonable amount of time.
  12. OK .. here is what happened ... I have secrets from two different versions in my sync folders. A set of secrets pre-1.4 and a set of secrets 1.4. The pre-1.4 secrets were already showing the RW/RO/ERO secrets as the expected length, The 1.4 secrets were showing the new format and I could not understand why those ones had the wrong length. So, I did the A to D switch for the 1.4 version secrets, and switched them on all my machines. It's all good now -- I didn't realize that the short secrets were the 1.4 edition ones until I looked at the other ones!
