OO Studio cannot start - another instance in same preferences folder

Jump to solution

During a training session, I was made aware that in HPOO Studio 10.51 you could run multiple Studio instances so long as they were separate Workspaces.  However, since I generally default to one Workspace, I clicked the "Do not ask again" on the Workspace picker dialog some time ago so now, when I try to start a second instance of Studio I get an error message that says, "There is another Operations Orchestration Studio instance currently running on the same preferences folder."  I assume that this is due to it attempting to open the same Workspace again but I don't know how to re-enable the Workspace picker dialog since the Studio.Properties files seem to work differently in 10.5x.

Hi,

Find the file StudioWorkspaces.properties under a folder path similar to: c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Hewlett-Packard\HP Operations Orchestration\Studio\ and change prompt.user to true

Hope it helps,

Hello,

I have been doing some test in my lab and I was unable to find any option in order to restart Switch Workspace windows.

As a workaround, try the following:

1) Close all the Instance of Studio

2) Open Studio and Under the file Menu select the option Switch Workspace -> other, browse to the location that you want to use (other folder) and then try again wiht other instance of Studio.

Let me know if you need something else.

I tried this and I still got the same error.  I think it's still trying to open in the same folder because it attempts to open the last used workspace, and, since I have an instance of Studio opened, whatever workspace I'm in is the last used workspace.

Thanks Andrei, that worked!  Plus, bonus, it answered something else I was curious about which was, "how do you remove workspaces you no longer use from the 'Switch Workspaces' prompt?"  So double thanks. 🙂
