Hi, you probably posted on the wrong category, try better on OpenVMS here. Good luck.

The messages just indicate, that the images, which the application startup procedure wants to install, are already installed.

Maybe there is an application shutdown procedure, which also REMOVEs those images ? Otherwise you can ignore these messages.

If you reboot the system, the images may not be installed automatically, so if you then invoke the application startup procedure, you don't get these '-INSTALL-E-EXISTS, Known File Entry for a version of this file already exists'

The action is to change the application startup and add a check for the images in question being already installed or not. This may include a check for the correct version (the secondary error message says "for a version", which may be an older one - this happens if you copy new/updated images before trying to install them) or a unconditional remove of an installed image aka a known entry for an image. An alternative is to change the or create an application shutdown procedure to make sure removing installed images is always done, regardless of other appcation shutdown errors.
