Oracle client needed?

Under WinNT4.0 SP3 with the client on another server I can not
properly start my web app due to the fact that as localsystem
the path is not correct. Logging in as anything else makes no
difference since not all dialogs are answered. Under console
mode it runs properly. I there another way to start the appconsole
but not as a service? Or can I just remove it from the service list
and will it then just run on the current user account.


Can someone shed some light on this.

Mike.

Mike,

when you say appconsole i assume you mean the app manager. you already
know how to run that in console mode (-c) based on your other posting,
so that's how you avoid running as a service.

if your problem really is a path problem you can modify the path for
localsystem by changing the System Variables on the Environment tab of
the System Properties dialog in the Control Panel. after a reboot,
localsystem has the new path.

regards,

-Marie

Theoretically you would be right but not in my case. I would have to let
Local
System connect to a netware 4 tree and get drive mappings from that tree
towards
a server on which the newest oracle client is installed. Sadly enough a
service
that logs on can not connect to the outside world as I have discovered
so setting
a path to e.g. \server_bu2sysapswinoracle is no working option. I
already have
tried the path, you are completely right in this. I actually need my
localsystem to
log on to a netware 4 and set paths. As a legitimate user instead if
LocalSystem
it also does not work. Would removing the service from the registry help
the app manager
not to start cwapi.exe as a service but as a normal program? How does it
start up? I think
my only solution is to have my NT machine log on as a proper user and
then from the startup
menu have cwapi start up in console mode. Then add a small program that
hides the console window.
That might be a, although improper yet working, solution. I wish I could
start up cwapi in
console mode without the console window. Now I again have to program
around it. It would be
so easy for the people from centura to add this little option. The
centura manual lacks in
the piece about the app manager and linking to non sqlbase databases as
well.
Might there be another way??

no, that is the same as not starting it.


not that i know of. console mode is the only option, however i am
surprised that having the nt service log on as a user doesn't give you
the same capability that you have in a console.

I found somewhere in the assembly code that under NT the app manager
tries to start cwami as a service. I just guessed it might start
another way if it can't start the service.



I think it is the cause of the intranetware client. I'll be trying the
newer client (don't know it's name anymore) in the future. For now I'll
simply use console mode and hide the window.

Thanks for your help.

Mike.
