Error app domain 5, won't start Photon

edited August 2011 in Photon Server
I can't seem to get Photon working.

I am running the x64 client, bin_win64.

I have Windows 7 x64.
I placed the licensing file in, but nothing changed.
I've tried unzipping the newest version with 7zip and Winrar, but neither change anything.
I've reinstalled, repaired, and restarted .net Framework and computer several times.

Tried researching this error, but only got the 2 errors in results, this is the 5.
Thank you.

    you can disable the counter publisher app if you don't use the dashboard in the photon server config.
    Not sure why exactly the error occurs - there is probably no counterpublisher log file either?

    I tried Win64_xp, same problem.
    Win32, same.

    I will try disabling Counter Publisher, but I'm not really sure what that does exactly, and what I lose by disabling it.
  • BorisBoris ✭✭
    it reads system/photon counters and sends them to the dashboard (there is an install option in the photon control). The dashboard displays the counters, just like perfmon.
    The counter publisher log would be in the same directory where Lite.log etc are.. that's one folder above Photon binaries, right next to the app folders.
  • CounterPublisher.log
    2011-05-18 17:36:21,897 [1] INFO  PhotonHostRuntime.PhotonDomainManager [(null)] - Stop
    2011-05-18 17:36:21,930 [1] INFO  Photon.SocketServer.Application [(null)] - Application stop: AppId=CounterPublisher; AppPath=R:\Emergence Online\Photon Server\deploy\CounterPublisher
    

    Nothing in the CounterPublisherCounter.log, it's empty.


    How can I disable CounterPublisher?
  • BorisBoris ✭✭
    just remove it from the photonserver.config
  • I can't reproduce the issue here and can't remember seeing this issue before.
    It might have to do with your configuration and the Windows Performance Counters. You could use PhotonControl to remove and re-add those of Photon and see if that works.
    If you agree to test this with us, we could add some more debugging info and send you a test version that might find the cause for this. This could happen next week or the week after it. It's quite busy.
  • Sorry to resurrect a thread from May, but I had this same exact issue earlier today and figured out how to solve it by perusing some Microsoft forum threads. I did first remove CounterPublisher from the config file per Boris's suggestion, but was not satisfied with that workaround so found this solution:

    Run "cmd" as administrator (required to prevent errors) and then enter the following command:

    C:\Windows\System32\lodctr /R

    This reset my Counters and fixed the error message that myself and the OP had.
  • Ah, good option. Thanks for sharing, Calidan
