The error relates directly to launching a process with a space in the

The fix is quite simple - when you build the paths for vic and rat it
"Application Data\AccessGrid3\local_services\VideoProducerService" path
- use quotes.

So for vic in videoconsumerservice.py
self.executable = '"%s"' %os.path.join(os.getcwd(),vic)

And likewise for rat in audioservice.py
self.executable = '"%s"' % os.path.join(os.getcwd(), rat)
self.rat_media = '"%s"' % os.path.join(os.getcwd(), ratmedia) 
self.rat_ui = '"%s"' % os.path.join(os.getcwd(), ratui)
self.rat_kill = '"%s"' % os.path.join(os.getcwd(), ratkill)

I am pretty sure you can do this in linux/unix - as I think the shell
will just drop the "" for you.

As far as strings and paths go - if you use the os.path operations -
just remember they will strip any protection for spaces you had in

Hi guys

I just downloaded AG3.0.2 and the dependancies on the page.

I have installed it but no vic and rat popup on connect, and I cant get
them to start at all from the gui.

Looking at the logs in C:\Documents and Settings\ran110\Application

C:\Documents and Settings\ran110\Application
The files exist and can be run manually

The error looks like a string is not getting substituted properly - but
I don't know.

Can you please help me
