"Can not connect to Automation Workshop Service"


The error indicates that Automation Workshop Manager failed to connect to Automation Workshop Service which is the core component of the software. As a consequence Tasks are either not running or not manageable (can not be stopped, updated; Workshop Manager log is not updated).

Possible cause for inability of Automation Workshop Manager to connect to Service is that Service is not running.
