Re: Re-install service to remove BlueIrisService.exe dependency

I tried to do this and now I'm completely locked out of the run-as-a-service functionality. When I try to enable it in the starup settings, I'm prompted for a username and password. However no matter what I enter, I always get the error "Could not login, check password (1326)". But the username and...

Re: Performance issues with Intel I7 7700 + 16gb ram

According to windows I'm using about 20% CPU, but blue iris says I'm using 91-98% most the time. Maybe blue iris isn't using all my cores? I think from what you are describing is that Blue Iris' method for calculating CPU usage doesn't match Windows task manager. This may be only a cosmetic problem...

Re: Blue Iris Update Manager

Reddawg, Many thanks for the Blue Iris Update Manager scripts, they've already helped me out of a jam once. I haven't installed the scheduled tasks for backing up the Blue Iris settings and archiving updates; I usually just run both scripts before I upgrade BI to make sure I'm up to date. Could I c...

Re: 5.2.2.0 Update

It looks like updates v5.2.2.0 through 5.2.2.2 have been pulled from downloading and installing through the "Checking for new updates" feature in Blue Iris settings -> About tab. However, anyone that may have installed any of the above mentioned updates before they were pulled might want to consider...

Re: Blue Iris Update Manager

NOTICE: I have noticed that Update version 5.2.2.1 gets stuck and does not complete when you manually run it outside of the Blue Iris app. I first discovered this problem because only this specific Update (v5.2.2.1) was hanging and not completing in my Restore utility called "RestoreBI5.cmd". All o...

Re: Blue Iris Update Manager

I just released an updated version of Blue Iris Update Manager that backs up all Blue Iris' settings stored in the registry using RegEdit.exe and now saves it in a ZIP compressed file instead of REG files. This reduces each backup from about 25MB to 282KB. DOWNLOAD BI5UpdateMgmt-v2.0.zip ===========...

Re: Upgrading v4 to v5

thanks for that, all back to normal again.... fun part was putting windows 10 in to safe mode ! :) Glad to hear. I miss how simple safe mode was in Windows 7.
