Issue:
When trying to distribute any probe via the IM console the 'View Distribution Progress' popup windows fails to open and the probe is not deployed.

Also, the Distribution popup window (opened via Tools > Distribution) upper right panel is empty. It's log (opened via right click > View Log) is empty. 
Resolution:
Deactivate the 'distsrv' probe.
Rename the "jobs.history.db" file.  The default location is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\distsrv".
Activate the 'distrsrv' probe.
The "jobs.history.db" file will be rebuilt.
The distribution of probes should now working via the IM console and the Distribution popup window and its log will show the expected data.
