Swarm Crashes - Can't restore old settings.
I tried setting up distributed lighting builds for my system, and now I can't build anything (even If I disable distribution). Here are my settings (both PC's have identical settings and are connected via LAN).
Unfortunately, whenever I try to build lighting from the editor - the editor dialog box pops up for about half a second then dissappears, and swarm doesn't even start building lighting. I checked the log, and this is being printed everytime I run it:
So clearly, something related to Swarm is crashing - but I have no indication what it is. I've followed all the setup guidelines for distributed builds, so why isn't it working?
Worst of all - I've reverted the settings, and now the Engine can't start Lightmass at all. What's the deal? I'm stuck an unable to build lighting on either machine now.
I'm using a source-built version of the engine (4.17.1) - so I can't use 'Verify' on the Launcher.

I never managed to fix this - but I was able to get distributed builds working by following this guide. It seems to be the most up-to-date (even better than the documentation) http://www.srombauts.fr/2017/11/10/ue4-use-swarm-distribute-lighting-build-network/
Since then I've upgraded engine versions, so sorry if anyone has the same issue in the future!
