DCRServer should be started automatically. Please post the output of the pdshow command.

Please post the entire pdshow output. According to this, other processes have been stopped.

Please tell us how to start it.  This product is so sparsely documented. The dosc are there but so few are of much use and my pdshow says the dcrServer was never started so can someone answer the question on how to start it?

Other searches come up with the suggestion to use net start and net stop to start and stop all services but I have no DCRServer in NT services.

Get a command prompt going inside the CSCOpx folder and type dcr

(its a bat and ini file that use each other methinks)
