Subject RE: SimpleAxisServer will not start
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2005 15:00:39 GMT

After trying your document step by step and getting SimpleAxisServer to at
least start (haven't tried the clients yet), I went back and compared that
success carefully with my earlier attempt.  It turns out I originally had
bad paths in my axiscpp.conf for XMLParser, Transport_http, Channel_HTTP,
and Channel_HTTP_SSL.  Thanks for the help.

Given the numerous complaints on Simple Axis Server not working, I got a
fresh machine (never touched by Axis C++) and installed Axis C++ from
scratch and documented the process of how to get it running.

PFA the document

The operating system on the machine was Windows 2003 server.

As mentioned in the reply thread, Xerces DLL is
the culprit most of the time. However, as you have mentioned, you seem
to have this on the PATH. I tried running simple axis server without
Xerces dll on my PATH and I get the same error as you get. When I put
this back, things work OK.

Additionally do you have W:\SimpleAxisServer\Axis\conf\server.wsdd file
as specified by axiscpp.conf in the correct location? If this is
missing, you tend to get a similar error but the error will also say
that it cannot locate the server.wsdd file.

To verify that the settings are correct, before running simple axis
server on a new shell, try echo %AXISCPP_DEPLOY% to and %PATH% to make
sure that the settings include what is required by Axis C++.

I had posted the same problem and did not get a reply :(

Following the note in the instructions, I copied AxisClient.dll to
W:\SimpleAxisServer.  In fact, I copied *all* the DLLs from the Axis bin
directory to W:\SimpleAxisServer.
