If you experience this issue it means that the Parsec Core Application (the Daemon 😈) is unable to start when you launch your Parsec app. This is a known bug and we are investigating the cause of the issue.
There are a couple remediation steps to try:
- Confirm that Parsec is installed in the C Drive here - C:\Program Files\Parsec\
- Confirm that Parsecd.exe and Parsec.exe are not running in Task manager before launching Parsec again
- Confirm that Windows Defender isn't blocking Parsecd.exe and Parsec.exe Go to Start > Settings > Updates & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings > Add or remove exclusions.
- If none of these work, please visit c:\Program Files\Parsec and run parsecd.exe. This is the Daemon, and it should work after running it manually.
Note: You will not be able to log into the Parsecd.exe application if you have 2 factor authentication enabled on your account.
