Please send any questions you have about to ACE/TAO/CIAO to the
ACE/TAO/CIAO users group and not to me directly.

To ensure that we have proper version/platform/compiler information,
please make sure you fill out the appropriate problem report form
(PRF), which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO+CIAO.  Make sure to include this
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO+CIAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO+CIAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers

It seems that you have compiled the project already. When you import the
IDL files to CoSMIC/PICML, you shouldn't import the generated IDL files.
Clean the project first (that will remove generated files) then import
IDL to CoSMIC/PICML as the tutorial mentions.

Follow my instructions above.

The PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM would be very helpful. Also, what version of
CoSMIC do you have?
