Hi Jim,

>"libTAO.so" and "libTAO.so.1.4.7". Should links be created or should

Please upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6.1 (i.e., ACE 5.6.1, TAO 1.6.1, and
CIAO 0.6.1), 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, e.g., ACE+TAO 1.4.7, I recommend that you check out


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