Prob. in topic creation using P4 Change Lisit

  • Hi,

    I have installed codestriker - 1.9.7 on Windows machine. I am able to create new topics using diff files but I am facing problem in creating new topic using Perforce Changelist.

    When I create a new topic using Perforce changelist, putting changelist number in Start Tag and // in Module field, I get following error -

    Command failed: open3: IO::Pipe: Can't spawn-NOWAIT: No such file or directory at C:/Program Files/codestriker-1.9.7/lib/Codestriker.pm line 584

    -p server:port -u userName-P PassWord describe -du xxxxx

    Check your webserver error log for more information.
    at C:/Program Files/codestriker-1.9.7/lib/Codestriker/Repository/Perforce.pm line 77

    When I run the command from shell as follows -

    p4 -p server:port -u userName-P PassWord describe -du xxxxx

    It works fine.

    As per the codestriker manual configuration for Perforce seems to be correct but could not figure out the exact issue. 
    It would be great if anyone can help in resolving the issue mentioned above.

      try running the p4 command line as the same user that runs your web-server.  Usually that user doesn't have the correct permissions set.
