E0777: Gproxy, license sharing lockfile problem

Product: Gproxy
Platform: Windows
Status: Fixed in 6.1.
Last updated: 2002-03-22 17:14:58

Host Links shared licenses are controlled by 'license
lockfiles' which are shared between the license server
(Gproxy) and the actual Host Links application.

The lockfiles are created in the 'tempdir' directory. In
some Windows OS configurations, the 'tempdir' directory
location may vary depending upon the program and the user
who is starting it. With the default Host Links profile
settings, it is actually possible for Gproxy and the Host
link application program to resolve the tempdir location
differently and this will cause license requests to fail
(typically only the first license request will succeed).

This problem has been observed with Gweb. The Gweb
emulation program will be started up as a cgi-script by
the web server and in such cases may end up having a
different 'tempdir' location than the Gproxy (service-)

Avoidance procedure:

Edit the 'tempdir' directive in the


file to point to some absolute location. e.g.:

 tempdir c:\gar\tmp

(you may need to create this directory first)
