Hi Sawdusty,

  • Are you using a DVR or NVR? Can you give the model numbers of the recorders that you're using?

  • Are you running the latest firmware on all the devices as well as the latest version of iVMS-4200? The fact you're only having trouble with certain windows PCs suggests that you may be running older versions of the program on them, or that there is another problem with it. My first recommendation would be to check that all the PCs are running the most up-to-date version of iVMS-4200, if you haven't already done so.

  • Can you attach a screenshot of the iVMS-4200 screen showing the devices as not connected?

Problem solved Malwarebytes blocking video
Hi Sawdusty

Would you mind to share how did you resolve this issue?

We are facing the same problem. We've added an exclusion to Malwarebytes but still no luck with live view.
Uninstalling Malwarebytes is not an option.

Thanks.

I had the same problem with Malwarebytes.
I have been able to add the folder 'C:\Program Files (x86)\iVMS-4200 Site\iVMS-4200 Client\Client' to the 'Allow List' and so far everything still works. Have you tried that?

Thanks Sawdusty, I did try that initially as I always try to get to the lowest level, but it had no effect. I didn't perform a restart though, so I may give that a go later. In reality it is only Malwarebytes that should need restarting as it then reads in the new parms. My focus now is with Malwarebytes and I have a ticket in with support. I was in software development for a number of years working with National retail and banking companies. If I put through an update to their software that stopped them viewing their security cameras, I would have had very short shrift! Even if Malwarebytes has some justification for blocking an element within iVMS, it should warn the user, not just render part of the application useless.
I'll update the forum when/if I hear back from Malwarebytes support.
UPDATE:
I tried excluding just the .exe, though I'm on version 3.1.1.9 and has 'iVMS-4200.Framework.C.exe' as the executable. It doesn't work on my version and I do have to exclude the folder. It seems that Sawdusty's option works with the older 2.x.x.x versions, but not 3.x.x.x.
