I see that it is unclear that i am saying 4 commands. first one is to go to the "Dos" window:


Then i go to the directory where fluent (gambit) is installed:

cd c:\\ntbin\ntx86

The trick that works with me is:

set display=:0.0

and then i start gambit with:

gambit -id pipe

Hi, hope you have succeeded in running gambit.?
If not please try the procedure below. I had xactly the same problem. It easily worked for me as per this procedure.

(1) Start > Hummingbird Connectivity > Exceed > Exceed (Appln will open and u will see Exceed on task bar)

(2) R-click (Exceed on task bar) > Tools > Session Startup > New (Untitled X-session window will open)

(3) Click Directory.. > Select the folder where you have installed Gambit(generally the folder is Fluent.Inc) > Select gambit2.3.16 > OK

(4) Click New Program > Select Windows App > OK (Untitled Wstart window will open)

(5) Click Browse > Select Gambit ".exe" file > Select Run : Normal Mode > Run! (this will launch gambit application successfully)

(6) Set the working directory in the application > Run
(Gambit is launched / runs successful)
