[mpich-discuss] Problem with MPICH2 v1.0.8 on WindowsXP

Hello Ondrej,

Have you tried to look at the number of licenses for connections in sherk ?
I seems to me that, if everything is ok, Microsoft's license manager can be
rejecting the (extra) connection. (or it may be a bug in license manager

License manager is a program embedded in Microsft's Servers to monitor the
maximum number of lawfull connections.

You can see it in the control panel of shrek.

I hope I helped you ;-))

Best regards,

Marcus Vinicius.
