The history tab no longer shows history

There could be a couple of reasons why the history may not show in your GateKeeper.

1. If you are using the GateKeeper remotely, the gatekeeper.exe will not have access to the history database so will not be able to display the history. You will need to run the GateKeeper.exe from a network share, or from the WinGate computer itself.

2. Make sure there are no display/recording filters enabled on your history.

- GateKeeper > Options (drop down menu) > History Settings
- Make sure the " Database filter settings" and the "View filter settings" are both set to "No filter"

If neither of these apply then it could be a corrupt history file. To fix this simply stop the WinGate engine, navigate to C:\Program Files\WinGate and delete the following files:

- HISTORY.CDX
- HISTORY.DBF

Next restart the WinGate engine, the History files should be rebuilt.

Not using gate keeper remotely. History was being logged but stopped. Tried deleting the two files but did not restore the logging and display. OS is Win 7 x64
