If the Apptim Desktop app is not starting/opening in your computer, you can try the steps below.

1- Check if the port 5000 is in use

Open the Terminal (If you are a Windows user, make sure to run as administrator) and execute the command below:


lsof -i tcp:5000


netstat -ano | findstr :5000

If it is in use and the Apptim app is not opened, then you can kill it with:


kill -9 <PID>


taskkill /PID 5000 /F

2- Check if adb (Android Device Bridge) is stuck

Kill adb server:

adb kill-server

Start adb again:

adb start-server 

3- Contact our support team

If after these steps, the Apptim Desktop app still doesn't open, you can send us an email to [email protected] and attach the session log (YYYY-MM-DD.HH.MM.log) in a zip file:


Execute open $TMPDIR on Terminal, then go to (/apptim_temp/logs/{session log})


Go to (/Users/{user}/Appdata/Local/Temp/apptim_temp/logs/{session log})

If you have any questions regarding these steps or want to get support from our team, you can contact us directly at [email protected] or through our website chat.
