Freelance Controller Emulator Service
I tried to install ABB Freelance program but I face some problems.
First that Freelance Controller Emulator Service is not on the list of services (control panel – Administrative tools – Services). Even I tried to make reparation for the program and make restart for the computer but still facing the same problem. Also, even I closed the Firewall , Proxy and Antivirus programs. At the end that when I open the Surfaces (internet explorer – Chrome -Fire fox - Microsoft Edge) and I write (https//:localhost:8888) it showed the same error in all Surfaces that said :
localhost didn’t send any data.ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE
please check in the Windows Task Manager if the service NT_Service.EXE is running.
If it is there but not running, start it manually.
If it is not listed at all, do a Modify installation of Freelance and make sure that the Controller Emulator is checked. It is located under Engineering Station / Bonus Pack
If it was already checked, try to do a repair installation while disabling your Anti-Virus software during the Freelance installation.
Also, the correct URL is http://127.0.0.1:8888/ without the "s" at the end of http. Also, http://localhost:8888/ should work.
