Re: Why DecWin can not startup on Console when system startup?

In SYS$MANAGER:SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM there is a line:

$!$ DEFINE DECW$IGNORE_DECWINDOWS TRUE

Be sure this IS a comment (as shown) If DECW$IGNORE_DECWINDOWS is set to TRUE, it won't start automatically but you will be able to do it manually (as you found out)

Re: Why DecWin can not startup on Console when system startup?

If you are in front of Opa0: during the boot, or if you startup log is stored in the file sys$system:startup.log, you should have some details, error messages to share with us.

see
$ mc sysman start set option
to get a log of the startup, and put a
$ set verify
before invoking decw$startup.

Which OpenVMS and DECwindows versions ?

Depending on OpenVMS version, you may not get much out of a start-up logfile because a defect in the DECwindows command files disabled output to the logfile. This was corrected for 7.3-2.

From the start-up that did not produce DECwindows look to see if there is a SYS$MANAGER:DECW$SERVER_0_ERROR.LOG file created and if it is look for any errors that will explain.

Search SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM for any settings of DECW$* logicals.

Martin,

Sorry, the WINDOW_SYSTEM should be 1.
I don't know where the 2 came from ..... slip of the finger .... it must be friday or something.
