    Hello all,

    I unfortunately struggle to get Unity Cluster Display, specifically MissionControl, to run.

    The only noticeable error so far is LaunchPad giving me the following error:

    Apart from that, I get a 404 if I try to open the web interface via localhost:9000.

    Can anyone help here?

    Hello! How are you running the MissionControl.EngineeringUI.Server executable? There are two ways to do this:
    1. By setting it as the startup project and running it from Visual Studio.
    2. Publishing the Server project and running the EXE from the output folder. This is done by selecting "Publish" in the Build menu or running
    dotnet publish -c Release --self-contained
    (with the proper arguments) from the command line. Note that this is not the same thing as "building" the project.

    You didn't give any details on how you're running Mission Control, but I suspect what you did was:
    1. Built the solution normally.
    2. Went the Debug/Release folder and ran the EXE from there.

    This will indeed give a 404 error because the directory structure will not be correct for running the web app locally.

    Hope this solves your problem.
