Some users are running into an issue with Backburner where the Backburner Manager crashes on startup. The error dialog only allows you to close the application.
If you check the log file or the Backburner Manager windows you'll see the following two lines:
INF Unable to bind to 1234:2345:3456::5678:6789,7890
ERR The address isn't valid in this context
The address it tries to bind to is an ipv6 address, if ipv6 isn't properly configured or is disabled that will be the cause of the problem.
Solution 1: completely disable ipv6
This works ... as long as you don't need ipv6. It's probably a bit overkill. Check solution 2 first!
Note that it's not enough to just uncheck ipv6 in the Properties dialog for the Local Area Connection ...
To completely disable ipv6:
Solution 2: disable the ipv6 to ipv4 tunnel
Much more elegant! To see if this applies to your system run "ipconfig /all" in a cmd shell and check if you have a line with "Tunnel adapter 6TO4 Adapter".
If you do, disable the 6TO4 adapter:
Now Backburner manager should start using an ipv4 address.
