steadyPRINT Agent is offline, steadyPRINT Service without function

Description of the problem

With some client operating systems we realized that the steadyPRINT Agent is permanently offline.


  • The steadyPRINT Agent is offline

  • The credentials for the database connection are not hashed in the registry under computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\steadySUITE\steadyPRINT\PAS.
  • The PAS does not create a debug-log

and remove this line:


Please also check the other frameworks – at least v2.0.50727 – for the same error. Then restart the client.
