With the Linux versions of 2.3 final, we've found that its just about
mandatory to remove/rename the user's .AccessGrid directory tree before
normal operation could be resumed. There must be some equivalent
location for users under Windows, which I would recommend removing as a
first step. As a zero step, don't forget to export any certificates to a
safe place.

Something else you could try (no logic behind this, just something
different to try) is to replace your VideoConsumer with a VideoService
or VideoProducer. Any difference?
