DECmigrate (VEST) and ident mismatches?

» close window

The Question is:

I need to use VEST to convert a supplied executable file so it can run on my
alpha 4100. I do not have access to the source code. After I have run VEST
on it, and try to run the new exe (nnnn_TV.EXE) I get the following error:
%DCL-W-ACTIMAGE, error activating image MTHRTL_TV
-CLI-E-IMGNAME, image file
-SYSTEM-F-SHRIDMISMAT, ident mismatch with shareable image
running anal/image on the nnn_TV.exe and the original exe it is to replace
shows the same library dependencies:
images from ti020a.exe
 Shareable Image List
                0)  "TIE$SHARE"
                1)  "BASRTL_TV"
                2)  "BASRTL2_TV"
                3)  "CDDSHR_TV"
                4)  "LIBRTL_TV"
                5)  "LIBRTL2_TV"
                6)  "MTHRTL_TV"
                7)  "RDBSHR_TV"
                8)  "RDBINTSHR_TV"
                9)  "SORTSHR_TV"
What is going wrong please?

The Answer is :

  There are known problems with certain VEST RTLs on recent OpenVMS
  Alpha releases.  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center.
