This all started with me having the previously reported “Can’t start the web server at 127.0.0.1:3875…” error when I try to use the Duplicacy Web Edition shortcut. (So the shortcut is useless, but I have no problem starting the Web UI when I type the address in a browser. In fact, I only have to type 127 and Chrome remembers the rest.)
But I am trying to solve the problem anyway. I rebooted from scratch and indeed there is something already listening on port 3875 - and it is duplicacy_web_win_x64_1.5.0.exe. Task manager shows duplicacy_web_win_x64_1.5.0.exe running, both under the Apps and Background Processes sections. No Duplicacy or Acrosync item is listed under the startup tab of Task Manager.
Duplicacy Web is installed for all users, and the service is installed and running. There was no previous version of Duplicacy Web installed on this PC, and Duplicacy Web was never installed for single user (no service). Why is Duplicacy Web auto starting? How can I fix things so the shortcut works?
