Dear Baskar: Try this on command prompt (run in start menu): c:\\ntbin\ntx86\gambit.exe [filename] sample c:\\ntbin\ntx86\gambit.exe newfile

Re: gambit installation
the same thing happened to me. for the first few times as soon as the error message came up i tried restarting gambit. however, my machine takes about a full minute for gambit to open up so maybe try closing the error window and then just leaving the computer alone for 2-3 minutes. it worked for me.

Re: gambit installation
The way to open gambit, at least on a windows based machine anyway, is to click on the gambit.exe file in c:\\ntbin\ntx86\ folder as suggested.

As far as I know it is because Gambit is run from a dos prompt hence the need for Exceed.

This is the way I use Gambit. In fact if you create a shortcut to this file on your desktop or in the start menu this will also work.

Good luck Chris

Re: gambit installation
remove the .lok file (probably the defaul.lok) from the folder where gambit starts

Re: gambit installation
Wierd! If Fluent really wishes to support Windows, it should put in extra effort to code gambit in VC++ and avoid all this X-Server emulation stuff or else simply accept that *nix systems are way better and support them properly. Learning to work with *nix systems is NOT a nightmare. The X window System these days when used with a nice DE such as GNOME can make life a lot more comfortable.

Lazy, that's what they are :X
