Applies To:

GROOV-SVR-WIN
GROOV-SVR-WIN-SNAP

Versions Affected:

Problem affects version groov Server, R3.1a and lower
Problem is fixed in version: groov Server, R3.1b

Resolved In Version:

Problem is fixed in version: groov Server, R3.1b


Symptoms:

You are unable to access groov Build or groov View using groov Server for Windows. When you open the Message Logs, you see errors similar to this:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/opto22/groov/shared/PlatformInformation

While groov is running, some files may be unpacked into the Windows temporary directory.  Some PC utilities delete files in that directory as part of a periodic clean-up process. If groov files have been deleted, groov cannot function correctly.

Workaround:

Determine whether any software is running that will delete files in the Windows temporary directory, and prevent it from doing so.

You can use the Microsoft’s Process Monitor utility to help diagnose what software running on your PC is deleting the files: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896645.aspx

Resolution:

Opto 22 has resolved this issue.
