Error when starting Seafile Client


I have a self-hosted instance. The Seafile client works on other computers in my environment. This computer is running Windows 10 Pro 10.0.17134.

When starting the Seafile client I get the error pop-up, “Seafile client failed to initialize.” Output from the logs are below.

same problem here, but it works if i start a second deamon. Wierd is i have to pcs with same windows version (updates etc) only difference is the processor (i7 4770 and r5 1600 (AMD not working)). After the installation the window vanished and i cant open it to log in.


This is the same problem

Which anti virus software do you use?


on both systems the windows defender. The Thing is as i installed windows it worked on my amd system, after a month windows installed an update and i did some bios updates and driver updates,after that it broke.


I tried what @Survive did and started a second instance of seaf-daemon in a window and the client worked. Could communication over named pipes to the seaf-daemon that is instantiated by the client initially be blocked for some reason?


Sorry, to answer your previous question @marcusm, I am running ClamWin anti-virus and have Windows defender disabled. The other PC where the client works also has ClamWin installed.


We had computers with and without Defender or another Anti Virus Software installed, so i think the problem is not related to anti virus. @Jonathan
