RE: failed during CreateProcess function call with error 183

Hi Pat,

Can you modify -directory to another working directory as a test and then send on the output of itadmin process show DS_GMOD6SUM again?
I assume this was something that used to work in the past or is this a new installation on this machine? I also assume you are using the workaround of starting the process manually until you can resolve the automatic activation error?

Out of interest can you try and register a process for the simple persistent demo with the same user and working directory just to see if that works fine?

RE: failed during CreateProcess function call with error 183

Thanks for your help and apologies for going quiet - I was inundated with people trying to help from all angles. In the end the root of the problem seemed to be associated with the recent installation of MKS on the server and the fact that 8.3 filename generation is turned off.

If you look at my post of the process show output (on 21 Sep 2017 10:20 )you will notice this:
The second line should be

So in the FAT the entry "Program Files (x86)" has PROGRA~2 as the 8.3 equivalent but "MKS Toolkit" does not have an 8.3 equivalent entry. There are a few other similar examples in the same list.
Removing MKS from the machine and removing these from the environment cleared up the problem.

Thanks again,
