I am trying to use VEE's ActiveX call.ocx within VB. I followed the setup
instructions and sample code I found in the call help files, but am getting
Within VB, when I try to use LoadVeeLibrary, I get the error, "There is no
Service Manager on host, WORKSTATION-1."
Below is the information I got from the HP VEE online help. I tried
everything it said, but no luck. Any ideas would be very welcome.
There is no Service Manager on host, <name>
The Service Manager could not be started. You may get this error message in
two different situations:
1. The Service machine does not have the Service Manager started.
For Programs Running on Windows 95 and NT:
The Service Manager is a console application named veesm.exe found in the
HP VEE installation directory. Start it by using Run from the Start Menu
(or the Program Manager on Windows NT 3.51):
"C:Program FilesHewlett-PackardVEE 4.0veesm.exe"
If you wish, put the Service Manager in the Startup group so that it is
automatically started when Windows starts running. Depending on whether the
Program Manager or the Windows 95/NT 4.0 shell is used, edit either the PIF
file or set the shortcut properties to so that the Service Manager will run
For Programs Running on UNIX:
If your system is on Network Information Services (NIS) (i.e. Yellow
Pages), the files services and inetd.conf have to be edited on the database
server machines, and the database has to be rebuilt. Each individual NIS
client has to have its inet daemon forced to read the central inetd.conf
file by performing, as root, the command:
2. The Client or Service machine is not configured correctly.
Reinstall the HP VEE software. When HP VEE is installed, it automatically
configures the Service Manager.
Refer to Installing HP VEE for more details.
