Continuing the discussion from Using my Astrotortilla settings in ANSVR:
When ansvr is installed it creates an icon in the Startup folder of your Start menu. That should be enough to ensure that it is always ready to go and you should not need to do anything before running SGP and plate solving.
First you should check your Start menu Startup folder and confirm that ansvr is still there. If not, it means you probably accidentally removed it and you should reinstall ansvr.
Assuming it is still there, you should check to see if ansvr is actually running. The easiest way to do that is to open Ansvr Settings (in Start => Astrometry.net Local Solver). If a web page opens up in your web browser, with “ansvr config” then we know ansvr is running.
If “ansvr config” does not show up (your web browser shows an error screen), then you should either a) log out and log back in so that ansvr starts, or b) manually start it by clicking Start => Astrometry.net Local Solver => Start ansvr. After that, try ansvr settings to confirm that ansvr really did start.
Please give these things a try and let us know if you run into any problem and we can take it from there.
