If you get the following error when trying to start the Net3 Gateway Configuration Editor (GCE), you will need to make sure Service Location Protocol has been 'Started' and set to 'Automatic'.
To do this, open a run box in windows. Press the 'Windows key' and 'R'. In the run box type 'services.msc' and then press the 'OK' button.
Right click on the 'My Computer' icon and choose 'Manage...' In the computer management window, select 'Services'.
Either method will open up the Services screen. Navigate to the service named 'Service Location Protocol'. Right click on the name and click on 'Properties'. Change the 'Startup type' from 'Manual' to 'Automatic'. Check the 'Service status' and verify that it has been 'Started'. If it has not, press the 'Start' button.
Click the 'OK' button and verify that the 'Service Location Protocol' is 'Started' and 'Automatic'. Restart GCE and the error message should be resolved.
