  • Make sure you allow the windows service through your firewall by either:
    • Using "Programs and Features" found in Droid Sync Manager installation folder

FAQ
Q: Android app is asking for a password?
A: You need to start the windows client, if there is no password set, it will ask you to enter one. else you will need to click on Security Control tab on top
then click on Set Admin Password button. The password you use here, is the one you will have to use on the Android app.
Q: I cannot set Administrator password, or start the service using Desktop client?
A: Close windows client, and run it again as Administrator (right click on windows client icon, click on Run as Administrator)

Gonna give this a shot. Do the two devices have to be on the same wifi network? If so, is it possible to write the code so the two devices are not on the same wifi network (ie - ability to access computer when not at home sort of thing)?

EDIT:

Ran into an error on the Windows installation. Downloaded .rar, extracted to desktop, ran Install.bat, then attempted to run DroidSyncManager.exe...

Error received:
Cannot start service from the command line or a debugger. A Windows Service (using installutil.exe) and then started with the ServerExplorer, Windows Services Administrative tool or the NET START command.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

I'm having trouble installing the actual server. What's the name of the service that needs to be running? It might have installed and I just need to set it to run.

@Adarzh thanks for the install log, that gave me a clue on what is the issue, the one attached now should work :highfive:

Thanks everyone for reporting :)

The attached one also includes a fix for issue where the service used to crash because of failure to write in its log file.

Edit:
If anyone is interested in reading the log file manually for the service, it will be created at: C:\ProgramData\Droid Manager\
Although the log file wont be created until you first connect to the service using the android app, otherwise no log will be written.

A windows service isn't like an application, you put it on your computer (and must keep it in the same directory) and just run the install bat, it will always run in the background and will start automatically on System Startup.

Although please note use Service manager after you install the service so that you start the service, it doesn't automatically start after installation.

COLOR]Android version needed ??
Yup the android version is the one that will let you access your files, without it there is no other way to access them :good:

Thanks for the update. Still getting the same error message when trying to run DroidSyncManager.exe file, and when I run Service_Manager.exe I try to start service and nothing happens.

Also tried to load a log file but the message I got was:
Failed to read log file: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\ProgramData\Droid manager\ServiceLog.txt'.

When you run the service from Service_Manager does it show you that Service Status is "Running"

If not can I please open a teamviewer session with you, I need to take a look at "Event Log" and "Services" in control panel administration tools :)

Did you try running "Install.bat" as administrator?

Also I didn't mention that the service requires Framework 4.0 installed, my mistake :angel:
Is it require exact 4.0. I just installed 4.5.1, i believe its the latest. I'm still getting the same error.. I ran the script as administrator too.
