Default Star-CD XDisplay error

Hi all,

I have installed Star-CD 3.26 on my computer, and am having trouble getting the xdisplay to work. Whenever I try to run Prostar from within Starlaunch, I receive an error "Error attempting to open X display".

I have tried using Exceed, MKS XVision, SCO Xvision and am now using Xming. I believe i has started each of these successfully (with the exception of Exceed which gave me trouble) but Prostar will not work for any. Am i supposed to somehow tell Prostar where to find the xdisplay server as i have not seen any options to do so.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've seen it work with Exceed and Xvision. Its probable that you don't have the Xserver (whichever you use) start "on demand". prostar doesn't know anything about the x server. You need to set the X server so that any type of X operations will automatically kick it off.

I use exceed. I start up a x-server before starting prostar. That works for me, and I've found exceed more stable than x vision.

I'm not sure that there is a way to tell Prostar to use a different X server without reinstalling it. Usually you have to specify the X server during the installation. To my experience Exceed is the most stable. What was your problem with it?

Exceed couldn't load a server when i tried. Neither could MKS. Don't know if this has anything to do with vista.

I'm thinking i may have to try uninstalling then installing again and hope that works.

Probably it really has something to do with Vista and it's UAC. Actually I'm not sure that even Star-CD itself is officially approved to rund under Vista (don't have release notes for 4.x version at hand)
