Thank you Demian.  That gives me the error message An abstract factory could not create an instance of symphony(alias: Symphony).  Is it more likely that the ILS is misconfigured or a mistake in the symphony.ini ?

To get more details, you can turn on development mode by uncommenting the relevant line in http-vufind.conf and restarting Apache.

Subject: [VuFind-General] Symphony driver for vufind


I'm trying to use the Symphony driver for vufind 2.0.1 in windows and have run into errors.  I set the baseURL, clientID, user and password.  The clientID matches the one in /symws/admin and is set to opac.  Vufind just reports 'An error has occurred'.  Please let me know how to troubleshoot and get a more helpful error message.
