Server Not Detected

NAOPurchasesNAOPurchases Members, Plex Pass Posts: 2 Plex Pass

Wanted to run the server on my old desktop PC. Installed latest version of Plex server. Went to Got asked to sign in and did so successfully, but no servers are detected. Nor do I even see the options for "server" in the settings area. Figured it could be the network adapter, so I switched to wifi. Reset my password and voided all keys, just so I could sign in again. I cannot employ the suggestions here (https://support.plex.tv/articles/206721658-using-plex-tv-resources-information-to-troubleshoot-app-connections/) because no token is being shown, and my library is empty.

I have uninstalled, restarted, reinstalled, repaired, restarted multiple times now. I am not on a "public" connection. And honestly, while I don't consider myself completely helpless with technology generally, I've got no idea of where to go from here.

    Don't use Edge as the web browser.

    If you already had Plex installed in the past on this computer, the old plex account data might still be in use.
    This procedure should be able to correct that:

    Worked like a charm, thank you. I had run through Chrome, Firefox and Vivaldi just to double-check, but clearing the registry did the trick. Thank you so much!

    This worked for me as well. Took me a long time to find this thread, and I'm sure others are having the same issue. Turns out I had originally logged in under a different email addy. Cleared out the registry, was able to get everything working locally as well as on my ROKU. Thanks!!!
