Solution

Warning:
WARNING: The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary.

ESRI cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions. Therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.


Use the graphics card that is explicity stated in the CON-CGI utility if you have it. Otherwise, use a generic graphic driver in the CON-CGI program, such as IBMVGA12.SYS or HRVGA.SYS (with the Everex Viewpoint option).

SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\ARCEXE\CMD

SET WKSP=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
SET WKSPDIR=C:\TEMPSET CGIPATH=C:\ARCEXE\CGI

Ensure you have a C:\TEMP\ directory existing on each of the PC's hard drive.
