Release 10.0.3 Build 2560 Windows NT/2000/XP (32 bit)
Process : WIZARD2
eBusiness Framework Wizard 10.0
Function : WIZE02

Statement : 104
Message : (0633) - Unexpected error (identifier 3) was encountered when attempting CreateFile operation involving object C:\PROGRAM FILES\LANSA\X_WIN95\X_LANSA\EXECUTE\rrn\DC_W31.RRN. 
Routine : X_PDF_Get_RRNO
Job Number: 002708 OS User : WEBUSER
PKGD="C:\X_WIN95\X_LANSA\X_PKGS" DBIT=SQLANYWHERE DBID=LX_LANCK PROC=*WSERVER LANG=ENG PART=DEM USER=WEBUSER DBUS=DBA DBII=LX_LANCK DBUT=SQLANYWHERE CMTH=T CDLL=lcomgr32.DLL EXCH=1605727200 W3ST=1605726824
ROOT=C:\PROGRAM FILES\LANSA\X_WIN95

The symptoms of the problem is that when you choose menu options e.g.. select Layout Style, Colour schema, Menu, DHTML Menu etc...the LANSA for the Web eBusiness Framework Wizard does not show any response i.e. no message is shown, doesn't move to the next screen, etc.

The error is caused by an operating system security restriction with the user profile WEBUSER. This security restriction means that the LANSA internal files cannot be updated.

Workaround:

  • Use the Windows Explorer to go to this folder:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\LANSA\X_WIN95\X_LANSA\EXECUTE
  • Right click the mouse and select "Properties".
  • At the Security Tabsheet, click "ADD" button to add Webuser into the user list.
  • At Permission section, make sure this user has Full control.
  • Click "APPLY" and "OK"
