    Unable to start xsp web service - Windows Client

    Hi all,

    I've got a problem with the Windows client (Windows 7 64-bit). When I start the client I get an error that says:

    Unable to start xsp web service, iFolder will not be able to work, restart the application.

    The client actually starts up. However, I'm unable to do anything with it. Are there any logs I can provide that may give you a bit more insight into what's going on?

    I can connect from my mac client and a colleague can connect (from outside the firewall) from his Windows client.

    Any thoughts?

    Many thanks,

    Have you had any luck finding a fix? I have the same issue but have not been able to find a fix.

    Ive seen this a few times before in a Windows 7 64-bit environment with the iFolder 64-bit client. When I first started seeing it rebooting the machine sometimes fixed it but ultimately it got to the point where it wouldnt work at all. I uninstalled the iFolder client and deleted the following directories:


    I did two reboots of Windows for good measure and then re-installed the client. Everything worked out for me and Ive not seen the issue return.

    Who knows? Maybe the same dance will fix it for you too.

    Whoops - that third directory should be %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\simias (I left out the 'Roaming').

    @schoenb - what version if the iFolder client are you using? Did you install Mono or are you using the built-in .NET?

    Mine is actually on Lenovo T400 running XP. Client 3.8.0 running all the built-in .net. I have installed it on many other PC's all with no problems. Just my PC.
    So I took an image and put that on another PC, so I can still work on mine. I have uninstalled tons of programs, still get the same error. I even uninstall ifolder then reinstall, but no luck. yet old ifolder 2.x is working fine on it. very furstrating. what am I missing???

    Uninstall and removal of the folders, reinstall worked for me, both on a W7x64 and a XP machine with the problems.
    I had already read this thread, so I didn't try uninstall/reinstall without deleting folders. Sync report many conflicts on the XP machine that didn't appear to show a difference - same dates and sizes.
