Reflections IA64_LINK Runtime Errors

I had IA64_LINK (VAXLINK2) running on my Itanium server, but it's now failing with errors below. My guess is that some of the recent patches has upset it in some way.

Can anyone help to identify the problem?

Rob.

Re: Reflections IA64_LINK Runtime Errors

I've managed to get it working by renaming it to something else :-

Directory SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]

IA64LK.EXE;2 2526/2528 7-APR-2009 11:25:43.84


Not sure what's going on. Perhaps IA64_LINK is some kind of reserved name on Itanium?

Re: Reflections IA64_LINK Runtime Errors

I don't that IA64_LINK is what you think it is. See SYS$HELP:VMS831H1I_IA64_LINK-V0100.RELEASE_NOTES which informs that in addition to the the executable, a new CLD is provided (SYS$COMMON:[SYSUPD]IA64_LINK.CLD). Inspecting the CLD you'll see that the verb defined is LINK. IA64_LINK is the VMS linker utility (and not the I64 equivalent of the Reflection file transfer utility previously named VAXLINK2).

Re: Reflections IA64_LINK Runtime Errors

Hi Jim.

I'd also found that as well, after some Googling. My original reaction was that a patch had killed it, which in effect it had, as it overwrote my Reflections version of IA64_LINK.EXE.

How unlucky can a man be to pick the same name as a new patch file?

Cheers Rob.
