Merge Expired License still displayed - cannot run Windows

Merge Expired License still displayed - cannot run Windows

Post by Viorel Tabar » Wed, 28 Oct 1998 04:00:00

Hi all.

The machine is a Compaq Prosignia 200/233MHz, 32Mb memory and 4.5Gb
The system has installed the following software:

SCO OpenServer Enterprise System (ver 5.0.4p)
SCO Merge 4.0.1b
Release Supplement for SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4 (ver rs504c)
Software manager Supplement (ver rs504c)
app479a: Merge4 EXPIRED_LICENSE fix (ver app479a.Unix504.1.0.a)

I still receive the message about the expired license when trying to run
dos/windos and every time I have to remove the license and license again
to be able to run dos/windows.

Maybe this information is useful: prior to install rs504c I removed
rs504a which was automatically applied at installation time.

Thank you for any suggestion.



1. Merge expired license bug not fully fixed by patch

Newsgroups: comp.unix.sco.programming
Subject: Patch for expired Merge license not working fully
Organization: University of Rochester, Rochester NY

I have a valid Merge license on my SCO OpenServer 5.0.4 machine.  I got
the "expired Merge license" bug, and applied it -- and also the major patch,
for bringing the system up to patchlevel c (it had been at patchlevel a).
I think (but am not sure), that I put the major patch in first, the Merge
patch in second.

Everything worked well -- for a while.  then, the "expired Merge license"
bug returned.

I've taken the "merge patch" out, and loaded it, instead.  My intention
was to reload it, and see if everything works -- or maybe to also take out
the major patch, load that, and re-install both in the opposite order (the Merge
patch first, the major patch next.)

But I've thought the better of it.  I realize that the wisest thing to do is to
write this newsgroup.  I'll get much better results, I think, than groping
blindly! :)

I'd appreciate email responses -- I'll summarize, and report back to the group.

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely yours,

Saul Lubkin
