Solution

What is the TechSmith Uploader?

The TechSmith Uploader Service is a service installed with Snagit to allow for direct integration with the TechSmith Relay solution.

Do I need the TechSmith Uploader?

If your organization uses TechSmith Relay, then you must have the TechSmith Uploader in your machine. In this case, you are not likely seeing the issue described above.

If your organization does not use TechSmith Relay, then you do not need the TechSmith Uploader Service. This service will install by default and will not cause any problems on the machine.

  1. Close Snagit.
  2. Browse to the following folder on your computer: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\TechSmith Shared\Uploader\
  3. Right-click UninstallAndRemoveUploader.cmd and choose Run as administrator.
