The MCEBuddy service is unavailable. Please start from Windows control panel or check engine connection.


I The service is running when I check Services.

The start stop, delete, add, settings and rescan buttons all flicker slightly in the UI.

When I click on Logs / Events, I get the following:
Warning 3-Mar-2013 4:39 PM
MCEBuddy GUI: pipeProxy engine connection error

Warning 3-Mar-2013 4:39 PM

I've attached logs. I get inconsistent transcoding out of it - something is being done, but the UI seems to this everything is hosed.

Thanks! Will.

Yes it's a known bug with 2.3.11 which has been fixed in 2.3.12 BETA version.

Thanks! Is there any word on when .12 will be available?
