This may be totally off-the wall, Sam, but have you checked your *CURLIB
definition?  We had a problem here for a while with default settings being
overwritten, and the cause turned out to be that everyone was using STRCODE
in QGPL.  We had everyone create a unique library to set as *CURLIB.  I'm
not sure that servers are stored in that same file, but it may be worth a

I downloaded SP3 on Monday but didn't install.

On Tuesday morning my SAML server had again vanished--that was 3 days in a
row.  So I installed SP3.

This morning my SAML server has again vanished.

In the Communications Properties display, on the left I have Server Settings
and under this CODE Server List and BRONZE.  BRONZE is my development box.

If I click BRONZE, on the right I get a display of Server Information.  In
top box, AS/400 Name or IP Address, is BRONZE.

In the box below, CODE/400 Server name, is BRONZE.  This should be SAML.  If
change this to SAML, everything works fine because it picks up the library
list I have set for the SAML server.

But why does it revert to BRONZE each morning?  Am I doing something wrong?

I don't know if it is related, but at last weeks DevCon conference we were
using WDSc with (I think) SP3 loaded and I noticed a strange behavior in the
CODE Comms properties.  When you defined a new server it did as usual and
put the idiot blank name in the list, which it then updated with the real
name after you entered it and pressed the "Change" button.  What happened
next was that the server name was added to the list twice.  I decided to let
it go and see what happened.  On a subsequent Open dialog I did have two
with the same name but the second was the normal ADM one.  When I went back
to comms properties to see if both servers were still there, 1 had

As I say I doubt it is related, but I had not seen it before.

I had some problems installing SP3 yesterday morning--the SETUP program just
sat there doing nothing.

As far as I can recall, this is the sequence of events.

I was at SP2 on Win XP, on a P4.

I did my usual daily power on/start up.  Loaded Lotus Notes, OnTime, CAE.
Read some e-mail, did some green screen work.  Loaded the Code editor, and
tried to open a member.  This failed because my server had vanished.  Time
load SP3, I thought, to see if it fixes this problem.

Closed the Code editor, closed the Communication Daemon.

Double clicked on wdsc40sp3enu.exe.

Got the "extracting files" dialog

Got the "reading contents of package" dialog

then the dialogs vanished and nothing appears to be happening.

Closed down Lotus Notes, Macafee and CAE and tried again, with the same

Ran codeedit /CM, tried install again, same results.

Started the windows Task Manager and found there were 3 SETUP.EXE programs
running, but taking no CPU time.  Killed all three and tried again.  Still
install, but there was SETUP.EXE apparently doing nothing.

Rebooted.  Stopped the communications daemon.  Had to stop it several times
because it kept coming back.  Stopped Macafee.  Ran the install again.
Installed with no problem.

I don't see anywhere on the Help/Product Information splash screen anything
that tell me that SP3 has been installed, though.

Some problems here, too.

Just installed SP3 over (not so) fresh install on XP.

I've variously, over the last few weeks, installed/uninstalled WDSC, as
well as WDT (using the Win98 compatibility approach).

I decided to go back to WDSC, cleaned the registry with RegClean RegCleaner
(to remove vestiges of WDT400).

1. When I enter my system name (MAGIC), it makes that the CODE server name
by default. It did not allow me to change that to MAGICBA, as I wanted to
do. (I've had that server name from a STRCODE on MAGIC - not appearing in
the server list, now, tho'.)

2. I then entered the IP address (192.168.1.xxx) and WAS able to enter
MAGICBA, although it had put in AS400A. Got some beeps while doing it,

3. I then worked for awhile, then ended CPO and CODE Edit, then shutdown
all servers from the system tray icon. This morning I looked
at  Properties, and AS400A was now in the CODE server name. Changed it to
MAGICBA, and I was able to use it.

4. This time it appears that MAGICBA is sticking.

Is there stuff to clean out of the registry? Like server settings? Or are
they stored in some common files area under Program Files? How do I
completely clean this thing off a computer, in order to start virgin?
