Hi Jim,

   Is there a reason you're using such an old version of ACE+TAO?  If
you can upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6.1 (i.e., ACE 5.6.1, TAO 1.6.1, and
CIAO 0.6.1) I think you'll have an easier time of installation!  You
can download this 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

Thanks very much,
