When you try to start Overbridge Engine, the following popup may appear:



The reasons for this can be:

  • Overbridge Engine is already running correctly, and you tried to start it again. Always check the system tray for the Overbridge Engine icon to make sure it is not already running.

  • Overbridge Engine is not visible in the system tray, but there is already an Overbridge Engine process running somewhere. The easiest solution to this is to restart the computer. After the restart, the system tray icon should be visible if you configured the automatic start of the Overbridge Engine in the Overbridge Control Panel. If it is not configured to start automatically, you need to start Overbridge Engine manually.

  • The computer is running another application that is using port 46000. Overbridge needs to use this port for communication between Overbridge Engine and the plugins. To solve this, quit the other application that is using port 46000.

    To find out what applications that use the port, please do the following:

    macOS
    1. Press CMD + SPACE, and then type “terminal”, and then press ENTER.
    2. Type the following in the terminal: “sudo lsof -PiTCP -sTCP:LISTEN”


    WINDOWS
    1. Press the “WINDOWS” key on your keyboard and then type “cmd”, then choose “Run as Administrator” for “Command Prompt”.
    2. Type the following at the command prompt: “netstat -abno -p tcp”


  • Another user is logged in to the same computer, and the other user is running an instance of Engine or is running another application that is using port 46000. To solve this, log out the other user, or log in as the other user and quit Overbridge Engine or quit the application that is using port 46000.

    At the moment, it is not possible to configure Overbridge Engine to use another port than 46000.
