Re: Pharo 7 image cannot write changes message on startup

Peter Kenny

I have had messages like this when I inadvertently tried to start two copies
of the same image (in my case pharo 6.1). The first image was running
happily in the background, the second gave this message (but still seemed to
start OK). I am also on Windows 10, using 32-bit Pharo.

HTH

Hi Richard,

the path for the image/changes/sources is

   C:\Users\Myself\Documents\DevArea\p7\Pharo7.0-32bit-eb0a6fb.changes.

in which I have all the rights (this is a desktop in which I have admin
rights)
the pharo image messages also shows the same path (in my earlier post I had
replaced with ...)

the VM is is a separate directory which is in the path

so what could be the issue here

this is not the case ... this is the only copy,
However it seems this is reported issue as per the other thread

(I am on Windows 10 if that is relevant)

Sanjay

Re: Pharo 7 image cannot write changes message on startup

I don't know how to identify the VM version - it is the one which was
current when I downloaded my current image in July 2017; the .exe has a
creation date of 31 May 2017.

The point of my comment was that this message does not only come from a
conflict of access permissions. In my situation, it arises because the
program knows that another program has exclusive write access to the changes
file. In your situation, could it be that the program is wrongly coming to
the same conclusion? I don't know how Pharo reaches that conclusion; I just
thought that it might give a clue to anyone trying to locate the bug.

Best wishes

Peter Kenny

PS. Sorry for splitting this into two threads - my spelling checker insisted
on correcting the typo in the subject line.
