Again about the named queues.

    The named queues are working inside one user (WIn XP). It doesn't work if I'm
    switching between users.

    One script pushes something in the queue ABC under the user A. The user B
    pulls NIL from the same queue.

    Is it a bug or WAD? The doc (queues naming conventions) says about the queue
    names uniqueness for system.

    Best regards,


    P.S. If it is WAD then the OORexx area is too small for the using

    What version of ooRexx are you using?

    Did you install rxapi as a serverice, or not?

    How are you "switching between users?"

    Then, this is unrelated to the above questions, just for my own understanding.
    What do you mean by the 'OORexx area is too small for the using.' I'm just
    curious, I just don't get what you are saying there.

    1) Open Object Rexx Version 4.0.1

    Build date: Mar 27 2010

    2) RXAPI service is running

    3) How to switch between users:

    4) If ooRexx doesn't support named queues per system basis (not per user) then
    nothing serious and workable may be written with it.

    For example, one ooRexx application is running as "server". The "clients" run
    another ooRexx application under the users connected to Terminal Server via
    RDC. The simplest and fine way for the client/server communications is named

    Hi Vladimir,

    There is a difference between rxapi is running and rxapi is installed as a
    Windows Service. I can not tell from your wording whether you have rxapi
    installed as a Windows service or not.

    If rxapi is not installed as a Windows Service, then for sure, what you are
    expecting will not work.

    On the other hand if rxapi is installed as a Windows Service, then I would
    think it would work. However, I'm on a domain here and don't have any way of
    testing it. I'll take a look at it next week.

    I think that my previous post contains the exact answer to your question.

    Well, I'm repeiting it with bold:

    2) RXAPI service is running.

    There is no ability to add screen shot here so I'm creating the problem with:

    1) Screen shot.

    2) The code for recreation (hope it is wrong).

    3) No additional tricks: how to create new account, start required services
    for users fast switch, etc.

    In any case about 10 minutes are required to check/recreate the problem for
    anybody from ooRexx team.

    Thank you in advance,
