I think these problems can mostly be resolved by running the components

I am getting debug output from the service manager when I run with the
--debug switch. Are there other components running when you start the

In 2.2 and the 2.3 betas, the service manager ran on port 11000 in
personal node, and 12000 standalone. In 2.3 (final), it is running on
port 11000 in all instances.

Can you describe how you ran these components such that you got this bad
behavior? If you're running the venue client from the menus (or with
the --personalNode option), the node service and service manager will be
started for you on port 11000. If you're running the node service and
service manager separately, you can start both with the command
'AGServiceManager.py -n' (the '-n' option tells the service manager to
start a NodeService internally); this will start both on port 11000.

The AGLauncher is really intended only for the Mac platform, where such
a menu structure is needed for the multiple components of the toolkit.
On Windows and Linux, it's better to just use the native menus.

If you're having trouble with the service manager and node service, rat
and vic will likely not start. They are started by services running
within the node service/service manager structure; once we resolve the
problem you've encountered there, the media tools will start for you.

This could also be related to the node service/service manager problem.
Could you provide more information, like the text of error messages
and the NodeSetupWizard.log file (from C:\Documents and
