StarTeam -- workstation license -- ConnectionManager.ini

I have Starteam 5.2 installed on my machine, but can't get the plugin to work. I go to test the connection and get an error message:

'Cannot connect to the server: no System property was specified for the ConnectionManager.ini file location. Try using -Dwsidfile=]]>'

I tried setting up an environment variable called 'wsidfile' and pointing to my ConnectionManager.ini file, but no luck. I don't know how to use '-Dwsidfile...' from the UI.

Thanks for any tips!

Go to idea\bin, edit idea.lax, add the -D... at the end of the line already
containg other -D options

Tom,
I believe the environment variable in question should be
'WorkstationID' (without quotes) and not 'wsidfile'.

Try that and see if it works.

Regards,
JM

Well, it made it different. I think it must be finding the license now. I don't get the error window any more, but now I get a general 'Idea has bombed' error. I see this in the log file:

Error during dispatching of java.awt.event.MouseEvent[MOUSE_RELEASED,(461,149),button=1,modifiers=Button1,clickCount=1] on dialog0

This occurs after I try to click the 'test connection' or 'projects' or 'views' buttons.

I've set up parameters in the .iws file for alternative path, server, pass, etc.

Any other tips greatly appreciated!
