Gene6 FTP Server will not restart after installing licence
This was on a Windows Server 2008 machine.
Used the trial – great, like it, and after trying to get my head around Windows Server 2008 IIS 7 and it’s reworked FTP service, Gene6 FTP Server was a breeze.
But hey, nearly fell at the first – the service would not start up after installing the licence.
A quick email to their support and they offered the following solution which works (it’s Windows DEP messing with it). Thought I’d quickly post it as I could not find the solution on the developers support site and it may help others to find the soultion more quickly.
Go to your Windows Control Panel, then > System > Advanced > Performances > DEP, and add g6ftpserver.exe to the exception list.
