Why is my measurement in “idle measurement”?

There are two possible reasons for a measurement going in idle. A measurement will go idle if you don’t have the appropriate licenses for the reports. If you do have the appropriate licenses and the measurement still goes idle, it is an analysis error. If this happens, please contact the supportteam to re-request the analysis.

‘Could not load DynaPort Manager’ pop-up appears

When you are sure DynaPort Manager is installed (you can verify if DynaPort Manager is installed on the following location C:\Program Files (x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager OR if the setup only prompts to “remove” the software), please follow step 2 of the instruction below:
McRoberts post migration instructions.

If you keep getting the error “Could not load DynaPort Manager, please install or start the program” while you installed the DynaPort Manager, it means the DynaPort Manager isn’t running or the certificates of the browser aren’t set up correctly.

C:\Program Files (x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager
in the address bar of the File Explorer and right-mouse-click on “Run” and click on “Run as Administrator”.

If you get the error “The software is already running”, you need to setup the certificates for the browsers by taking the following steps:

  1. Close all the active browsers.
  2. Close the DynaPort Manager in the Task-manager (ctrl+shift+esc). Click on the program Network (32 bit) and end this task.
  3. Paste
    C:\Program Files (x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager\bin\gencert
    in the address bar and run “Gencert.cmd” as administrator (right-mouse-click “Run as Administrator”).
  4. Start the DynaPort Manager as described above and open MyMcRoberts in your browser.
  5. Connect a device. The DynaPort Manager is working if the device is visible.

If you are still getting the loading error in MyMcRoberts, please contact the supportteam.

An error occurs while downloading data stored on the device to the PC.

In that case the path to which the measurement is transferred often doesn’t exist or has been moved. A clean install of the software will remove this problem.
The current path used for transferring data can be seen by going to C:\Program Files (x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager. Right click on the file ‘Run’ and choose edit. The store path is shown and can be altered here if you have administrator rights. Make a screenshot and send it to the supportteam.
