The Question is:
I have OpenVMS systems running BravoDraft. We X-windows to Bravodraft with
Exceed 5 on NT4 Workstations. This method was established before my time and
now we want to add a "client" to access the VMS and X-window into Bravodraft.
The new client has WXP
-Pro and Exceed 8.0. When I access the VMS and enter my username, it lets me
in. When I try to execute the command for Bravodraft, I get "Error while
initializing grapics device" or "Can't Open Display". This also happens on an
additional NT4 station t
hat I experimented with (so it's not XP related). What am I missing on the VMS?
Thanks for your time. Caron.
The Answer is :
The DECW$EXAMPLES:ICO.EXE tool provides various error messages, and
can be a simple and sometimes-useful diagnostic for troubleshooting
X Windows display errors in place of applications that provide few,
confusing, incomplete and/or no X Windows error messages.
Has the SET DISPLAY command been invoked? This DCL command is how
DECwindows knows where to display the X Windows output.
The X Windows server (the Windows system running eXceed, in this
case) must also typically be configured to allow the incoming display.
(Somewhat confusingly, the applications are the X Windows clients.
The X Windows server operates the X Windows display.)
