How to Fix A Broken Encompass Smart Client - 404 Not Found
|AppLauncher Failure Due to Incorrect Client ID|
How Does This Happen?While you were installing the Ellie Mae Encompass Smart Client, you entered the wrong client ID, and then it tried to download the configuration from elliemae. Client ID's always start with BE for "Broker Edition" or "Banker Edition". If you entered the incorrect ID, without the BE prefix, the whole download and configuration process will be completely and permanently screwed up. It will just blow up and burn with a 404 error. Stick a flower in it, because it's dead.
