The "Connecting to server. Stand by ..." message, appears at the bottom left corner of the window of the component.


It means that the component is not able to communicate with the server.


ProcessRobot


Go to Run > services.msc and check if the ProcessRobot Server service is running.


Case 1 - Server is running

    Step 1. Go to the installation folder of the ProcessRobot Server (default path C:\Program Files\ProcessRobot\Server) and correct the AppServerAddress.config. There should be a mistake either in the Address or the Port used.

    Step 2. Restart the ProcessRobot Server service.


Case 2 - Server is stopped

    Step 1. Go to the installation folder of the ProcessRobot Server (default path C:\Program Files\ProcessRobot\Server) and check the content of AppServerAddress.config. In case it is correct, then there should be a mistake in the Connection String. AppConnectionString.config is the file that stores the Connection String. However, it is encrypted, so you should replace that with a new one, with the correct Connection String. 


A sample connection string is the following

Password=Your_ProcessRobot_User_Password; Persist Security Info=True; User ID=Your_ProcessRobot_Username; Initial Catalog=Your_ProcessRobot_DB_name; Data Source=Your_SQL_host_name\SQLEXPRESS;


    Step 2. Restart the ProcessRobot Server service.


*Note: In case the above does not work and the component and the ProcessRobot Server are installed on different machines, there is a chance that the Firewall or Antivirus blocks the connection.
