Just my luck - I suddenly can’t save my work or indeed continue working on my project due to whatever this message means:“DCOM connection to program ‘Synsopos.exe’ failed. Error:The RPC server is unavailable” and the Eternally Spinning Little Blue Wheel on the cursor. I can’t even close the program in the normal way for the same reasons.
I understand from searches that this can happen, but it always seems to happen to Cubase users and involves a dongle, an item which wasn’t required when I installed Dorico Pro 3. The help page suggests I check whether the DCOM Server Process Launcher is running (I did, and it is), but the subsequent instructions are quite techie in nature, and I’d just like some reassurance that - if I did attempt this solution - I wouldn’t lose my Dorico licence (it being a virtual rather than a physical one).
I’ve been using Dorico for just a few days, so I’m still feeling my way.
UPDATE In the end, I decided just to shut Dorico down via the Task Manager. Wonderfully, it not only restarted successfully but also offered a dialog which enabled me to recover my project intact. Phew.
