I was having the rather irritating issue with my Surface Pro where I’d hop on the train for my morning or afternoon commute, and the screen wouldn’t rotate (change the orientation) when I was trying to read with my Kindle app. What made it frustrating was that it’d start working again when I arrived. I read the troubleshooting document and then contacted Microsoft support and they weren’t able to reproduce the issue. This morning, I finally figured out what was going on.
Had issues with XBox Live complaining about the MTU size not being sufficient. Well, that wasn’t actually the cause for me. In the end, I had to turn off uPnP on my Cisco RV082 firewall to get the network connection test to pass and to be able to sign into XBox Live.
If you get the error “Another program has already opened a LocalConnection with id ‘_flexcover’. No coverage data will be recorded.”, do the following:
- Open Task Manager and kill any instances of CoverageViewer.exe (or your Mac equivalent).
- Close all browsers.
- Close FlexBuilder.
- Close Yahoo! Messenger (or other client that hosts the Flash Player).
#3 did it for me.
I was using FlexCover 0.81.
