Installation Error

I am trying to install OpenVMS  on the FreeAXP simulator and I get this error message: "Error occurred executing AXPVMS$PCSI_EX_INS_PROCESSOR.COM"

I have tried installing on a 32-bit Centrino Duo (Windows XP) and a 64-bit Intel Core i7 (Windows 7 Professional). 

 

Can anyone help with a solution?

Re: Installation Error

Paolo,

 

it is very unlikely, that this error has anything to do with the FreeAXP Emulator (not: Simulator) !

 

If you want help, please provide a better problem description (what exactly did you do ?) together with the commands used and the output of the console session (use cut &paste from the Putty Console window).

I was trying to install openVMS. The installation had got to at least 40%  complete and then this error message popped up followed by advice to terminate the process.

 

If you want a screen dump I'll have to start the install again - but I was twiddling my thumbs waiting for the install to finish :-)

Re: Installation Error

Paolo,

 

configure the Putty console terminal to log the printable screen output to a file (Session -> Logging)  and re-run the installation. Then post the complete logfile (as an attachment to your forum message). This should answer most questions...

 

Which version of OpenVMS Alpha did you try to install ?

 

If you're interested, look at the procedure AXPVMS$PCSI_EX_INS_PROCESSOR.COM in [VMS$COMMON.SYSUPD] on your OpenVMS Operating System CDROM to see, what it's doing and what the possible errors could be...

Re: Installation Error

Volker: it's OpenVMS 8.4

I'll do another install with logging.

Thanks
