Re: [PEDA] All Servers gone

2002-05-06 Thread Cam Andruik

I had a look at my Client99SE.ini file and the Servers are listed.  The file
is less than 64K inn size.  But...
the first two sections have a strange looking header

D1$ATTR0$EFolder$STF|Folder
File200=DMSACCESS:$RPV:\Eng\   etc...

and

lder$STF|Folder
File200=DMSACCESS:$RPV:\Eng\   etc...


and the next one looks normal

[Servers]

So I cut the top two sections (which were very long, I suspect they were
list of Databases I had opened and closed).
Now Protel works again.


Thanks for the help.

Open the file Client99SE.ini in your Windows directory with any text editor.
At the very end should be a section that is labelled: [Servers] followed by
a
list of servers with the path to their associated .ins file.

For example:

...
[Servers]
ArngeCmp=C:\Program Files\Design Explorer 99 SE\System\ArrangeComponents.INS
AutoPlacer=C:\Program Files\Design Explorer 99 SE\System\AutoPlacer.INS
AutoSave=C:\Program Files\Design Explorer 99 SE\System\Autosave.INS
Binder=C:\Program Files\Design Explorer 99 SE\System\Binder.INS
CAMBillOfMaterials=C:\Program Files\Design Explorer 99
SE\System\CAMBillOfMaterials.INS
...
...

Make sure that this list of servers exists and that this file is not set to
read only.

 I have no Servers installed.  If I add them, the next time I start Protel

 Anyone ever seen this before?

Yes, as others have said the there is a servers section in Client99SE.ini. 

What happened was the close file list in Client99SE.ini grows without bound
and if you are running Win95/98 anything more than the first 64kB of an ini
file is ignored - the server section gets pushed off the end. 

I don't know if this problem ever got fixed. 

If you are running WIn95/98 and Client99SE.ini is more than 64kB edit it
and delete some of the closed files. 


Cheers, Terry.

Not this. Perhaps someone has a better idea what is happening, but at this 
point I would uninstall Protel, move all the *99SE.* files in the Windows 
directory to some other location, and reinstall Protel. If it works, one 
can then, if there is customization to be recovered, move the *99SE.* files 
back by halves -- keeping track of what has been put back in the most 
recent batch --- until the problem reappears. Proceeding like this, the bad 
initialization file, if any, may be found, and it might even be partially 
recoverable with a text editor If there is no serious customization, I 
wouldn't bother restoring the old files.
