Hi Tamar,

>I'm using ACE 5.5.1.

Please upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.5.8 (i.e., ACE 5.5.8, TAO 1.5.8, and
CIAO 0.5.8), which you can download from


under the heading: "Latest Beta Kit".

The DOC groups at Washington University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt
University only provide "best effort" support for non-sponsors for the
latest release, as described in


Thus, if you need more "predictable" help for earlier versions of
ACE+TAO, I recommend that you check out


for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO commercial
