Troubleshooting

Try to access the MacroView licensing website in your web browser https://licensing.macroview.com.au.

 

If you can't access MacroView licensing

Your client is likely having an issue communicating with the MacroView external licensing server, possibly due to a firewall or proxy issue.

You should confirm that https://licensing.macroview.com.au is not blocked by your firewall, or that it is added to the list of addresses to bypass the proxy for in Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings.

If there are still issues after confirming that, please contact MacroView Support describing your situation and attach a copy of an information level trace file from MacroView Options > Support > Trace Files.

 

 

If you can access MacroView licensing

The issue is not likely linked to a firewall or proxy issue.

Instead, you should try removing your server from MacroView DMF then re-entering it:

  • Close all Office applications + DMF Explorer
  • In the system tray, right-click the local service (yellow cube) and select Exit
  • In regedit, delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MacroView
  • Also, in Windows Explorer, delete %appdata%\MacroView DMF

Then run DMF Explorer again and add a server (there should be no servers in the list).

If this has not fixed the problem, please contact MacroView Support describing your situation and attach a copy of an information level trace file from MacroView Options > Support > Trace Files.
