Verify you have no Endpoint Security software that may be interfering with the launch and running of Location Manager.

- Screenshot of the user's Location Manager client, displaying the issue.

- Copy and paste the displayed data into a text file, and include the text file in your support request along with all other required data (example below).

- Open the C:\Program Files\Intrado\911 Location Manager\.env text file as an administrator.
- Change LOG_LEVEL=info to LOG_LEVEL=debug.
- Save the .env file.
- Replicate the user issue.
- Obtain the Location Manager 911LocationManager.log file in: C:\ProgramData\911 Location Manager.
Note: Location History only shows the last location you registered Location Manager with.
