Gambit startup prob
Hi everyone,

I've been having trouble starting Gambit on a winXP system. The error i'm getting is ---

[gambit] Cannot open connect stream. TRANS(SocketINETGetAddr): tnamebysocket() failed TRANS(SocketINETConnect): TRANS(SocketINETGetAddr) () failed TRANS(Open): transport open failed for tcp/fluentmachine3:0 Unable to open display

Gambit was running ok on this m/c till yesterday when the system suddenly hung and had 2 be restarted...any suggestions??! thanks!

Re: Gambit startup prob
I have been trying 2 do tht and now i get an error saying.. Error - Cannot create directory C:/ProgramData/HummingBird/Global/Accessories

This happens midway thru the installation and i'm not able 2 proceed frm here...I have already uninstalled the old appln so i don't think that's the issue...

any ideas?? thanks!

Re: Gambit startup prob
open your xconfig from exceed and got to your exceed 3d and GLX settings, in that disable the opengl option and restart your exceed. Than open the gambit.
