The symptoms of this problem are often clear:
- VSee Messenger is working if launched normally (e.g. search start menu for VSee and launch, comes up with login window)
- VSee Messenger doesn't work when you're in the Clinic and try to start a session. There is a message 'VSee appears to take longer than normal to launch' or related.
The cause is likely that the user has accidentally selected 'deny' when confronted with the initial launch confirmation dialog by Chrome. Therefore, the VSee app can't launch anymore from the waiting room.
