Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

Well I think I found part of the answear, I was doing test with VMs and it worked well so I decided to clone it and try to run another and turns out the 2nd VM cannot connect : only 1 EC account allowed on a PC. So I think they are only checking the PC names or something else that would be the same...

Is there a program that records everything over a time period?
Sorry I missed this post yesterday. I think Process Monitor (Sysinternals) records logs.

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

A good test would be to launch a first EC successfully and then terminate it abruptly with Mojo. Then see if you can run another EC successfully. If you can, DAOC-EC probably isn't setting any kind of flag or variable and we need to look instead for a direct form of interprocess communication like w...

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

Yeah, you can do that with a paths.dat file. There’s a bug in Mythic’s code so be sure to put a blank line at the end of the file after the last line of text.

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

I thought of something else you can test easily. You need two separate DAOC install folders (real ones, not Mojo virtual ones). Run DAOC-EC's in both. If the second instance is denied, it's 100% certain that Broadsword is not doing this with a shared memory segment. If the second instance is allowed...

Found the conhost, but its under mojo....
Oh, okay, we can ignore it then. Thanks for the screenshot, it makes the situation clear. The login.dll that runs when you launch with Mojo is part of Mojo and it's not the same login.dll as the one in DAOC's install folder.

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

P.S. If you use Process Explorer you might want to try to identify the process (if any) that's getting hosted by conhost.exe and then watch that process and see what it's doing. If that process exists it probably comes and goes in a flash on Process Explorer when DAOC-EC launches so this may be hard...

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

Oh, sorry, I thought you said you were using Process Explorer or maybe I just assumed it. Process Explorer is a free program published by Microsoft. It's like TaskManager but more powerful with additional features. To find it, look for "sysinternals process explorer" in a search engine. If you click...

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

... this is probably happening because the instance is running a .bat file... The instance may also be running a certain kind of executable file (a so-called console application). If so the executable file is probably in the install folder with a file extension "exe". However this executable file, ...

Re: only 1 free account allowed on a PC

Can't imagine them writing files outside their own folders. (install/app data) Programs do that sometimes. Microsoft discourages it (except for TEMP folders) but it can be done without messing anything up on the user's PC. Were your folders set to show all files (hidden, system, etc)? Did you look ...
