    Anyone experiencing issues with the ESS 5.x version and the firewall within ESS?
    Running Windows 8 Ent x64 with 5.2.15.0 with personal firewall module 1103. Every time the software loads with the OS I am essentially showing a normal green status but there is no traffic traversing my network port. Everything fails to connect to anything off of the laptop. Once I disable the firewall traffic again begins to flow as per usual.
    When trying to capture this failure by turning on the "log all blocked traffic", I am then presented with an "Error" popup that states 'Unable to read firewall configuration'.

    Has anyone seen this before and any remediation steps anyone can come up witho_O? o_O o_O o_O

    Does it make a difference if you rename the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ehdrv.sys in safe mode?

    I have done multiple installs and reinstalls. The issue continues to reappear without prompting.:mad:

    I will make the safe mode rename today and see if it makes any difference. :doubt:
    Thanks for the feed back!!

    I had a few issues, so I put the firewall in interactive mode which prompts to allow. Cured it for me, might be worth a shot
