[THIN] Re: RentRoll - DOS App, Multiple Instances

Maybe the launchit functions can be incorporated into your script.  Can =
you
paste your script for us to see?

Thanks. I'm not sure this will work for me. I wrote an 'application
launcher' that starts the program. They have 40 properties. Most users =
get
access to a single property, but others (like Managers) get access to
multiple properties. I wrote a small vb app that parses their group
membership and either:

1) Gives them an error telling them that they're not a member of any
authorized RentRoll group
2) Gives them a list of properties to choose from, maps a network drive =
to
the location, and launches the app from there.
3) If they're only in one group, map the drive to that location and =
launch
the program.=3D20

  I did that to avoid publishing the application 41 times. If I use
Launchit, Launchit will be launching my app, which launches RentRoll. =
I'll
take a look at it though. Thanks for the input.

If what you describe is the cause, then one likely solution is as =
follows.

Download "Launchit" from www.tmurgent.com.  It's a free utility. However
RentRoll is started today, replace the command with LaunchIt, with the
normal RentRoll command line as arguments to LaunchIt.  (e.g. "Launchit
Rentroll.exe plus args").  LaunchIt will run RentRoll.  When the =
executable
for RentRoll completes, LaunchIt will look for whatever RentRoll is =
leaving
behind and clean it up.  Works with both 16 and 32 bit apps.  This =
should
close the session.

Good luck.

Subject: [THIN] RentRoll - DOS App, Multiple Instances


HI all,

  Has anyone every integrated RentRoll? I've got the app configured for =
a
property management company with 40 sites and it's working fine. =
However, in
the CMC, I notice that a single user will be listed as having the =
published
app open multiple times in the same session. From what I've seen, this
occurs when the user gets disconnected or closes the program and then
reconnects. I've tuned TCPMaxDataRetransmissions and ICAKeepAlives and =
the
disconnects are much less frequent. I think what's happening is that the
user closes the program but it doesn't actually log them off (they have =
no
other apps open on the Citrix servers). Then, when they reconnect, =
they're
redirected to their existing session, but a new instance of RentRoll =
starts.

FYI:
3 servers
Win2K SP3
MFXP 1.0, FR2
Am using Tame because this DOS app polls the keyboard like crazy - this =
has
calmed down the CPU usage

  Anyone seen this kind of behavior with RentRoll or any other DOS app?

Thanks,

Jeff Durbin
