Our the years we have had a few customers reporting that after a Windows Update and subsequent reboot, 4D Server will not startup automatically. This has been reported with a ranges of OSs (Windows 7 Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, 2012, 2016) and a range of 4D (v13-v17). We also have other customers who NEVER have problems with 4D Server restarting automatically after a Windows Update reboot.
What we do is tell them to manually stop the 4D Server process using Net Stop prior to installing Windows Updates. Of course, that mostly defeats the purpose of running 4D Server as a Windows Service.
Our assumption is that there may be some Windows configuration that is affecting some installations. I’m wondering if others have cases like this? If so, what was done to resolve them (if they were resolved)?
