SPX Windows won't start. Error message "Connection falied. Please verify that the SPX service is running and that the IP address and port are correct."
SPX had been making backups under the active Backup Job just fine through last night and would have continued to do so if I hadn't manually run SPX. This morning I tried starting the program to swap out the backup hard drive and Create a New Backup Job and couldn't reach the SPX dashboard to do that. When I started SPX, I got the above error message, and the dashboard is blank and can't be reached. At that point the previously scheduled backup job which had not yet been canceled stopped running as scheduled.
A month or so ago, since I last started SPX manually, I changed my Win10 Pro password. Since that appears on the "Saved sessions" screen, I figured that must be the problem. I changed the password on the Saved sessions screen to my new Windows 10 password. That didn't help. Then I tried changing the Windows 10 password back to the old password SPX wanted, and also changed it back to the old password in SPX and rebooted. That didn't help.
So the program won't start and has stopped making backups, presumably because I changed the Win10 password, and I'm afraid I've lost access to all my saved backups on this drive and on archived drives.
What is the Saved sessions screen supposed to do? Usually it just opens and closes in a split-second, but when it has a problem like tihs, t's a very user-unfriendly screen for average home users like me--there's no help in understanding the settings this screen wants within the program that can't even be opened, or in the online manual.
