    Sorry if i'm not understanding the instructions correctly but i like to think im a pretty technically adept guy and i tried finding solutions. this is a wonderful program.

    I have a late 2013 macbook pro retina 15'' high sierra 10.15.2, broadcom bluetooth chip says its product number 0x8289.


    Problem 1:
    I am able to successfully act as a client for a windows 7 computer (as in, windows controls my mac) but when i click the bluetooth pairing button within the GUI on my mac, an error pops up with code 7. I can click "Bluetooth Devices" on the top bar and it will open my bluetooth panel, even allow me to connect to my windows machine. but even then i cant click that button without an error.
    Problem 2:
    When i right click on the dock icon and click switch to server mode, the option to switch to client mode is greyed out. i have to uninstall the program and reinstall it to get it to server mode again.

    Sorry if these have been discussed already but if i find a solution i'll be sure to report back with some google friendly keywords

    Hi mike_b,

    Regarding the problem 1, do you mean, when you click the pairing button in the AcrossCenter, the error code 7 appears? If yes, the error code means the background acrossd process is not running.

    Regarding the problem 2, The "switch to ..." menu item is enabled when the AcrossCenter process can communicate with the background acrossd daemon process, which needs some time (max 10 second) after clicking the menu item.

    From the symptoms, the background acrossd daemon process would not be running due to an unknown reason. Have you tried to reinstall our Across?
