I recently downloaded and installed Republic Anywhere on a Windows 10 machine. It worked at first, but at some point it displayed the error Currently Not Connected. So I clicked the close button in the Republic Anywhere window, then clicked its shortcut to launch again. Same problem…hmmm. A Google search later, I found the support note
which links to the Resolution, How to Properly Relaunch Republic Anywhere on Microsoft Windows 10
It strikes me as (mildly tragic) humor that the workaround for a software glitch has been rebadged as the proper way to relaunch said software.
