Win orbiter will not start
« on: April 08, 2005, 07:08:48 pm »
When I start the Windows Orbiter (installed from core website link) it runs very briefly and then shuts down. The orbiter_logger.out file contains the following.


    16:23:59.515 Device: 7704 starting.  Connecting to: dcerouter
    16:23:59.515 Stage connect
    16:23:59.515 About to cleanup Orbiter

    16:23:59.546 CRITICAL : Unable to download UpdateBinary application from the server.
    16:23:59.546 Stage run



Any Ideas? :D

Our Orbiter programmer won't be in until Monday.  But I know that every time it starts it compares its version against the latest version on the Core, and if it's older, it gets a program "UpdateBinary" from the Core, saves it locally, and runs it.  UpdateBinary then updates the Orbiter program, and re-runs it.

Looking at your log it says:
16:23:59.546 CRITICAL : Failed to save the UpdateBinary application to location '/'
16:23:59.546 CRITICAL : Unable to download UpdateBinary application from the server.

I think this means the temporary location it uses is the root directory, like c:\, and it can't write there.  What type of device is this?  A PDA, webpad, PC?  And is this the windows xp/2000 or ce version?
