Hi Anne:

The error you identified shouldn't prevent the node setup wizard from 
starting.  There should be another indication of problem in that 
logfile; if you don't see it, you should file a bug for the node setup 
wizard in our bugzilla (http://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/AccessGrid) and 
include the logfile.

The problem you encountered with rat and vic not starting is due to a 
difference in the personal node setup between 2.1 and 2.2.  You should 
be able to get the media tools working by building a new node configuration:

- Start the VenueClient
- Select Preferences->ManageMyNode
- Add the service manager at localhost 11000
- Add services (audio, videoconsumer, videoproducer) to the service manager
- Save the node config as the default

It should then work each time you start the venue client.
