Initial Start Error

Hi guys,

 

This is the first time I've ran into this problem and have no clue what is causing it. Basically I tried to run VRC (on this machine I've never ran it before), and an error message pops up saying "Could not open UDP voice port. Perhaps another VATSIM program is running such as ASRC?"

 

This message although self-explanatory, but I could not locate anywhere that might be using a UDP voice port, even looking in task manager didn't help.

 

What else could be causing this problem and how can I over come it?

 

 

Cheers

What operating system? If it's Vista or Win 7, you might try running VRC as an administrator.

If i can get on using my laptop to the work network and use VRC, does that mean the problem lies in my computer?

 

I've been [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned admin rights so I can alter the computer how I like it. Have you got any pointers as to what the setting of the computer should be for this to work?

I would hazzard to say yes then it could lie within the computer. it also depends on how your companies network is layed out and structured. For instance I have admin rights on the PC i use at work and cannot connect to vatsim due to blocked ports on their hardwired network, but i can connect with my laptop that goes thru their wireless network.

your boss must be a pretty darn cool guy to let you waste time controlling online at work

 

Well, work is more a general term, I'm not getting paid to be there, in fact, I must pay to be there...

 

Let's put it this way, I'm a PhD student who manages his own time.

 

But it seems to be quite troublesome, since I only have a windows netbook, pretty difficult doing controlling there. :S

 

Anyway thanks for all your help!

Here's an interesting thing... I tried few days again, VRC worked for some reason! I mean that's good for me, except that's strange the fact I didn't modify the settings on anything, and it seems to work.

 

Just thought I mention that.
