Indeed, good suggestion :)

If, yes, if I had looked in the trace log, the solution was there.  The trace log usually pops open, but not this time.

Thanks

Mike

json formatting is crucial in most places.      we use it a lot and I have been known to bork it as well.

We use the web site https://jsonlint.com<https://jsonlint.com/>  fairly often as a helper tool.

 Paste in your JSON and verify it .   it tells you where you goofed up.    Saved me many times.

All,

Solution is not to update the config.json file with bad data.  I forgot to close a section with a ‘]’ and so Omnis went bonkers after that.  So all good now, just a good lesson in writing good code.

Thank you for thoughts on why.

Serial number is our usual ODPP one.

Very odd.

Hi Mike,

You should be able to set it to any free port number on your machine?

Or is there some serial licence thing preventing you turning it on?

Hello All,

Can anyone remember why you can’t set any value, other than 0, for the $serverport value in Omnis Studio v10.2 prefs please?  I do remember something else holding Studio back, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what it might me.

Reboot is not helping either.

Thanks
