Using Safe Mode

HTS can be started in safe mode to help troubleshoot error messages. Safe mode can be activated in two different ways. The first, a shortcut on the start menu. The alternative, start the platform in safe mode manually by starting HTS from the command line with the safe flag:

hts.exe -safe

If the safe mode is activated successfully a few things will happen:

  • None of the API drivers will be activated

  • Newsfeeds are disabled

  • The web-interface will be disabled

With safe mode, it is possible to start HTS with minimal functionality in order to make changes to any settings. It is recommended to use this feature if you are unable to start HTS normally.
