Failure to create domain participant error, RTI DDS 4.5d, Visual Studio 2008, Windows Server 2003

Hi,

      I just installed RTI DDS 4.5d, and tried to run the Hello_simple example, using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. When I run the HelloSubscriber.exe program, I get the following error:

 

Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 x86 tools.

DomainParticipantFactory_impl::create_participant():!create failure creating participant

Unable to create domain participant.

Exiting...

 

I'm following the steps in the getting started guide, and as far as I can tell, this should run at this point. What could be causing this error?

Hi Elvis,

 

I am Bettina and I work for RTI in Europe.

 

The error that you are experiencing points towards a missing license file.

 

There are a few places where the application checks for the valid license:


1. In your application’s current working directory, in a file called rti_license.dat.

2. In the location specified in the environment variable RTI_LICENSE_FILE,
which you may set to point to the full path of the license file, including the filename
(for example, C:\RTI\my_license_file.dat).

3. In the RTI Data Distribution Service installation, in the file $NDDSHOME/
rti_license.dat.

 

If you obtained the software via the free download, than you should have received the license file via email.

 

I hope this helps to solve your problem.

 

Kind regards,

 

Bettina
