There are no cipsrvr processes that won't show up in the task manager and 
of them have any other names.

Normally, a cipsrvr instance will only get upset if there's another process 
that has a socket bound to the same host:port that the new instance is trying 
to bind to. That could be another cipsrvr instance using the same 
configuration info or it could be any other windows program that uses UDP 

Before running "cipsrvr console", make sure that there are no other 
cipsrvr.exe's running and make sure that the local UDP host:port in your 
configuration is not actively being used by any other service or process on 
the box. To be sure, you could set the local host part to be

If it still proves elusive and you want to build it yourself, you'll need 
6.0, The Windows NT or 2000 SDK, and the Windows NT or 2000  DDK. Those last 
two used to be downloadable but can only now be ordered on CD. Minimally, you 
can compile just cipsrvr.exe with VCC 6.0 from within its source directory by 
typing "nmake". If there are any bits missing, then I can email them to you.
