I am running BI 5.3.7.12 x64 (Not as a service) and suddenly BI Tools is not restarting BI after it goes down. BI Tools show that BI has been found.

However BI Tools still indicates that BI is running, even though Windows Task Manager shows that it has been killed.

Any ideas on what is happening?

TIA

Out if interest, whats the benefit of using this tool? I run BI as a service and not once in all these years have had it quit or crash

One benefit is if you do not run it as a service and use Remote Desktop then you get sound. It is a known issue with Remote Desktop that you do not get sound on live view, but you do on playback.

I simply open up a camera GUI and turn audio on that way if I want to watch BI live with sound. I'd rather run as a service than take a chance that it crashes or restarts and then not record.
