Can't Open Vault On Windows Identity Safe With Network Cost Awareness
I have NAV, and recently (since the 188.8.131.52 update?) I'm unable to open my vault. At the "Vault Closed" prompt, I type in my vault password and click Open. It says "Validating Vault password...", pauses for a minute, and comes back with a warning "The operation timed out. Check your network connection or try again at a later time."
I'm using a metered mobile wireless internet connection on this PC, so I've had the network connection set to "Economy" for Network Cost Awareness for quite a while now. I've never had a problem opening my Identity Safe Vault before recent updates.
As an experiment, I changed the Network Cost Awareness setting to Off and tried again to open my Vault. This time I was successful. I then turned Network Cost Awareness back On, closed the Vault, and tried again. I was able to open the Vault, but I'm concerned that I won't be able to open it after the next time I reboot. I'm also concerned that my Vault won't synchronize with the online Vault with Network Cost Awareness set to On.
