Unable to start listener


Unable to start listener

Postby anonymous_wm » Tue Dec 02, 2008 8:38 am

The problem we are getting is on random PC's the message:

Unable to start SMB (WinPopup) listener on USER_NAME.
Until restart WinMessenger will not receive messages that were sent to COMPUTER_NAME.

I have tried reinstalling the software and rebooting the PC.
What do I have to do?

WinMessenger is a replacement for the standard Messenger Service and WinPopup tools.
You have to stop the standard Messaging Service, which may be running on your computer or close other software that sends or receives messages using the NetBIOS protocol because WinMessenger also uses standard NetBIOS and SMB protocols and same NetBIOS names to send and receive messages.
Please check also that names COMPUTER_NAME and/or USER_NAME are not duplicated in your network.
