PROCON won't start if PC restarted or session closed

Question

I'm new to all of this so please excuse me.

I also read all the related forums and found no similar problem.

 

I installed a new BF4 server and managed to upload the plugins via FTP and configure everything, server working fine... nevertheless, if I close the PROCON program (I already marked the close/minimize to tray options) or restart the PC next day, when I try to enter again it always crashes and shows the message "a problem has caused Procon Frostbite to stop"

 

The only solution is to delete the whole folder and to re-download the PROCON and make it think it's a first time... reconfigure all the options and connections... does not matter if I disconnect before closing or change the Procon location folder... closing means crashing and "re-installing"

Any hints about the cause and steps for solution?

 

I have Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bits

 

Thanks in advance

life get confusing for directories with . . . . . in the name.

 

2. Where do you have the procon directory?

C:\procon? If not put it there, give the user rights to the directory if they dont have it.

 

3. have you tried not deleteing the config files?

eg move the configs to another directory, clear out and reinstall, copy the configs back

Does it crash on start?

 

4. If the above crashed

Start again - add a plugin. copy the config files to another directory, restart - did it crash ?

if not, add another plugin,copy the config files to another directory, restart - did it crash ?

 

etc etc.

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
