"Object reference not set to an instance of an object." error when trying to load extensions page

Eric Gillis 2 days ago 0

I receive this error when attempting to load the Extensions page under Administration.  I just migrated my on-premise installation from Linux to win2016 with no other issues other than this one.

I have tried using chrome and edge but received the same results.  I also tried private mode in chrome in case there was a cache issue.

Known issue


Ryan Yoxthimer 1 year ago • updated by Eric Gillis 2 days ago 32

Getting ERR_SSL_VERSION_INTERFERENCE in Chrome 63 when accessing Control hosted on a Mono system (Linux) using HTTPS.  Please update Mono to support TLS 1.3.  Disabling TLS 1.3 in Chrome is not a viable solution long-term and looks bad to my end users.

This issue should be resolved once users auto-upgrade to Chrome 63.0.3239.108 or above.


Logging off of accounts locks the computer, instead

Jack M 3 months ago • updated by Jason Bristow 4 days ago 12

From host to guest, on my Mac in particular, clicking log off in Windows almost always locks the screen, instead. This wasn't happening on 6.8. I updated my host client and the behavior persists. This makes it nearly impossible to remote in, reliably, as I can't log out of user accounts.

There were some complications that kept the fix out of 6.9, but we are planning to include it in 7.0. Apologies for the trouble in the meantime.

Codesigned by version of macOS too old to work anymore.

Eric Layman 4 days ago • updated 4 days ago 1

The app was signed by a version of macOS so old that it doesn’t validate on newer versions of macOS.


Website Download

ryan.senio 6 days ago • updated by Eric Davis (SDT) 5 days ago 3

So it's been a few days since I first called in, but I'm unable to download the newest stable build for my linux screenconnect. The website generates an XML error. This is also the case for the Windows installer. I've spoken to two techs, the first telling me to try in 10 mintues. That was two days ago.


Complicated process required to control macOS 10.14 (Mojave) clients

sgtpoliteness 4 months ago • updated by Tom R 6 days ago 62

Setting up Connectwise Control on macOS 10.14 (Mojave) clients is difficult and requires many extra steps as compared with previous macOS versions.

To set up Connectwise  Control on a brand new install of macOS 10.14, these steps are required:

  1. Install .pkg as normal (this allow remote viewing but no control)
  2. Reboot macOS computer
  3. After reboot, attempt remote control, this will prompt a popup asking if the macOS computer wants to allow
  4. Click "Open System Preferences"
  5. Click lock (bottom left), enter computer password
  6. Check box next to "screnconnect-xxxxxxxxx"
  7. Reboot
  8. Remote control again works

In cases where remote control was working on a macOS 10.14 computer where Connectwise upgraded from 6.6 to 6.7, connectwise software must first be removed using these steps:

  1. From Access website, select session > End > Uninstall and end
  2. On macOS computer, open system preferences > accessibility
  3. Click lock (bottom left), enter computer password
  4. select "screenconnect-xxxxxxxxx", click - to remove
  5. Reboot
  6. Install using steps above

I believe this complexity is due in part to some sort of increased system security in the new macOS.  Still, it seems much of this could be streamlined.

Thanks for the report!  It's admittedly a pretty minor issue but I've registered it as a defect and we'll get to it when time/priority allows.
