MainType FMSProxy help


 

What is the FMSProxy


The High-Logic FMSProxy is a small program that runs in the background and is connected to the High-Logic Font Management Service. It acts as a doorway between the fontservice (running as administrator) and your user environment where your fonts are installed. The 3 main tasks of the FMSProxy are:

 

What happens if I stop the FMSProxy


MainType won't be able to access fonts located on the network and plugins won't be able to load/install fonts.

 

I keep getting notifications in MainType that FMSProxy is not running


When you install MainType, the FMSProxy is also automatically installed and set to run each time you start your computer. Some programs and system optimizer software may remove the FMSProxy

 

How can I see if the FMSProxy is running?


The easiest way to see the status of the FMSProxy is to start the FMSConfig utility through your startmenu. The status of the FMSProxy will be indicated by a small icon.
