ANSVR "local mode" only works if debug is on?

Thought I had platesolving all worked out… Appears not!
Moved SGP to a new machine.

When I do blind solve with remote it works immediatly. When local, it bombs out instantly after 2 seconds. All firewalls switched off. I can open blind settings in SGP control panel and I get the local host page on port 8080 fine.

If I turn ANSVR debug mode ON then it works just fine. If I disable debug mode it bombs out after 2 seconds again.

Weird issue! Any thoughts please folks?

This all works fine on my other machines and I’m set up identically from what I can see.

Best, Steve

No matter, I just run ANSVR debug as a startup process and it then all works.
