OS Name/Version: Windows 10 and Windows Server 2022

Steps to reproduce:

  • Step 1 I clicked update
  • Step 2 Got stuck updating for an hour
  • Step 3 Can’t get it back after i manually closed the service and started it again.

Actions taken to resolve so far:

If you have any game instances running on Windows and restart ADS it hangs. You’ll need to go to Task Manager and kill any running instances. Then from Terminal run ampinstmgr upgradeall.

Thank you so much.
That worked after I stopped the instances manually with task manager. Is this common on Windows Server?

Unfortunately, yes. That’s not the case on Linux. ADS can be stopped and started freely. It’s a limitation on Windows how it handles processes.

Thank you. I always use Linux but I wanted to set up a V Rising server, spend two days setting up a server with Windows Server 2022 and V Rising to now read that you have deployed V Rising for Linux haha, I’m going back to Linux ASAP.

That sounds like a great plan! Lol also I recommend you use the AMP Docker functionality. It saves you tons of headaches with finding dependencies.

I will use that then to install it.
It can be used on any linux distribution like Ubuntu or Debian11?

Yupp! It doesn’t work on ARM but should work on any Linux distro AMP supports. It’s part of the setup script. It will prompt if you want it.
