Am Windows XP with TXSeries 18.104.22.168 and LWI stopped working this morning after many months.
So turned on the computer (clean sheet and all that) and started tracing via Windows Services, found TXSeries Lightweight Infrastructure (LWI), startup parm of Automatic but it hadn't started. So I clicked on 'Start the service' and got a Services window saying..
'Could not start the TXSeries LWI Service service on Local Computer. Error 2:The system cannot find the file specified.'
So I right clicked on the LWI line, went to properties, noted the 'Path to executable:' which said..
where I found lwiserviceicon.exe but not lwiservice.exe - ouch??
Did a scan of the computer and found lwiservice.exe only in c:\opt\cics\BACKUP\wui\bin
I am not adventurous with this stuff and fearful of just copying it to opt\cics\wui\bin but..
- might that be the/a solution
- if LWI worked last week why not now
- might lwiservice.exe have been moved or deleted by some process (certainly not me)
- is the version in BACKUP valid/invalid
Just for info, to stay away from port 80 I originally set my port to 8081 in config.properties in the overrides directory, same change in tac.url. Today, as I half expected, a 'netstat -ba' showed nothing about 8081. An old listing I'd saved of netstat results did show:
TCP graham:8081 graham:0 LISTENING
TCP graham:8081 graham:0 LISTENING 2484
Am I right that the missing lwiservice.exe is my entire problem? Can I copy it over?
Read ZveWeiss from June 2008 but no mention of lwiservice.exe therein.
