When starting the ArcIMS Monitor service, which launches the Spatial Server process, aimsserver.exe, a an error message may occur:"Xerces Panic Error
Could not find local code page transcoder" This error may also be logged when requests are sent to the Spatial Server and the services appear to be still up and running.
This problem may be related to either IBM's XML for C++ parser (XML4C) or Apache's XML for C++ parser. The IBM parser includes three files: icuuc.dll, icu18n.dll, and icudata.dll. The Apache parser is associated with one file: xerces-c*.dll where "*" is the version. ArcIMS uses both DLLs in conjunction and there might be a conflict with existing files on the ArcIMS host, where this error happens.
