I've been using Multiplicity 3.6 Build 00105 for a few weeks now with no issues. The ancient SSD on my primary PC finally took a dump a couple days ago and I've been forced to reinstall my apps. This is when everything went south.
I downloaded Multiplicity from my account dashboard, installed, and the program launched with the familiar prompt asking me if wanted to make that the primary or secondary computer. I chose primary and then received a prompt: "Revert to secondary mode? Do you want to make this computer act as a secondary instead?"
NO. I don't. I just want to install what should be a simple app and I want it to work. That's all.
When I click "No" the prompt disappears and nothing happens. So then I open "Configure Multiplicity" from the taskbar and get that same bullshit message again. If I want to do ANYTHING at all, I have to choose YES. I choose YES and now I see the configuration screen for a SECONDARY GODDAMN PC. WTF? Ok, let's click the broken SECONDARY toggle button in the top right corner of this config window and see what happens.
"Switch to be primary? Are you sure you want to switch this computer to be a primary rather than being controlled by other computers?"
YEAH. That's what I've wanted from the beginning, but that appears to be to difficult for this craptastic installer. So let's roll the dice and click "Yes".
Boom, NOTHING happens AGAIN. NOTHING. NOTHING CHANGES, NOTHING HAPPENS. So, now I'm stuck in a loop and what should be the PRIMARY PC is stuck being a SECONDARY PC. Absolute bullshit. Ok, let's try restarting the Multiplicity processes? NOPE. Same crap.
So then I uninstalled this awesome software on what should be my primary PC and uninstalled it on what should be the secondary PC. After both PCs reboot, I run the purge batch file to clean up any leftover crap (this program leaves shit all over the place in the registry and on the drive), reboot both again, do a fresh install on the secondary PC and choose the SECONDARY PC option, and then I did a fresh install on the PC I want as my PRIMARY. SAME. DAMN. SHIT.
So yeah, this software is now useless and it looks like this forum is the only support option available (great). So what gives? Why doesn't this software allow my PRIMARY PC to be a PRIMARY PC?
Both computers are running Windows 10 22H2. Both computers are on the same PRIVATE network. Both computers have MAC reserved IP addresses. Both computers can do everything else they need to do EXCEPT run this damn software. If you guys can't provide a solution to what should be a relatively simple app install and config, I need a refund.
