UNIX??? Man, that brings back memories (most of them bad). The Windows OS version of the DTM software had (or has) a bug that when improperly shut down (fatal error, build crash, or some other appropriate phrase) will not delete a file in the /dtm/bin directory. This file makes the computer think you are setting up a build. Once the file is manually deleted, you can continue on. Word of warning, don't delete unless you are 100% sure. I think the file has like $ or # or $%!*^%$>>?! ! at the beginning of the file name. (Kinda looks like a computer cuss word.)

The other option. . . You may be through with your UNIX days and may need to upgrade the computer, the OS, and the DTM software. Much cheaper than scrapping the machine.

  Hello rp-ml user group,

  We are facing some problem on DTM's Sintersation 2000 system.

  when we try to create build setup it is poping up a message winodw " is currently using build setup, you can not run a second build setup" we are unable go into build setup window

  Action taken: 1. Shut down the machine and reboot system
                      2. Deleted all build log files
                      3. Re-Installed sintersation all system & material config. software pacakge

  After doing all these, still we r getting above message. We r still running on UNIX based programs. please suggest, if any body knows how to rectify this problem.
