this helpful to me.
My problems began as I copied sequences from my show computer using version 4.3.18 to a machine usingprevious version 4.3.16. Something about ..16 didn’t like shows I had saved in ..18.
Had same issues-repeatedly – though – still couldn’t open sequences after all this.
Stumbled through a few more steps (see below) and – finally got it working (BTW: Running Windows 10 Home Version).
offer these few observations that finally got things going for me:
(perhaps not all need to be done, but I did them all and it started working)
I’ll number – some of you more experienced may suggest that certain steps don’t have to be done – that’s great and could save some time for others
1. Uninstalled the prior version using the Unistall button in Control Panel.(I’ll number – some of you more experienced may suggest that certain steps don’t have to be done – that’s great could save some time for others)
2. Left clicked on the LOR light bulb in the service tray.
3. Clicked on “Enable Schedule” (which WAS enabled – font in darker pixels; made it effectively “disabled” – lighter pixels for font)
4. Went on down the menu to click “Unload Light-O-Rama”
5. Back to LOR website.
6. Downloaded 4.3.24.
7. At conclusion of download, clicked “save” from the popup window.
8. On that still open dialogue box, clicked “run”.
9. Clicked on Windows icon and selected restart..
10. Went to apps, clicked Light-O-Rama (New) then clicked control panel.
11. Got this message in Control Panel:
4:31:33 AM: Comm Listener error 3: Comm Winsock Error / 10061: Connection is forcefully rejected
4:31:34 AM: Connected to Comm Listener
4:31:40 AM: Connected to Comm Listener

12. Right click blue lightbulb in service tray, select Sequence Editor (it launched and saw my shows – use default suggestions during install), clicked on the show I wanted to open and I’m ON MY WAY!. Filed loaded in its regular time frame (about 5 seconds or so)
