How can I solve SideSync issues between S4 and Samsung Ultrabook?

I have an S4 from Verizon with 4.4.2 and new download of SideSync 3.0.4.7. The new Samsung Ultrabook running Windows 8.1 won't connect. It shows "Connection failed: Please check if the SideSync is running normally on the phone". After a few attempts, the phone OS crashes.

It's possible that you're using a rooted Samsung Galaxy 4. In this case there may be occasions where you will not be able to access the Samsung Apps store. To check, try to download SideSync 3.0 for your Samsung Smartphone by following this link to download this app from Samsung Apps. If that does not work, then follow these steps to download SideSync from the Google Play Store:

Hi, how are you, I have a problem with DirectX?

Here is my problem; SideSync tries to connect to the net to download and install DirectX but fails. I then tried to independently install Direct after doing a separate download but on trying to run SideSync installation for the second time it tells me that 'DirectX is not installed', so I'm in a blind alley now .

I have a Galaxy S7 Edge that no longer works properly with SideSync?

I have a Galaxy S7 Edge. Previously I could mirror screens using SideSync with my HP Windows 7 laptop. Now mirroring no longer works. In fact, I cannot control the phone at all using the laptop. I have deleted and reinstalled SideSync on both devices with no luck. I run Android 7 on the phone. I don't see anything in the article that covers the inability to mirror the screens.
