Hi Kim

I have this same error; as previously raised in Jira:

[jira] Created: (SYNAPSE-336) [Windows] Unable to start sample 351 and 352 on Windows due to an issue regarding scripts.

This Jira was never acted on and dismissed; However  I can reproduce it on 2 machines  and now cannot now use synapse. It appears Synapse is too unstable / unreliable to use on Windows. I am using a large number of other Java applications/app servers etc and this is the first app that fails on Windows !!!

I am using Java: JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_17

This is related to Random Start Up Error message of last week; however I can now reliable reproduce this as these samples never run.

Can you reopen the JIRA and attach any information we could use (e.g. exact OS version, SP level etc) and path installed (i.e. if spaces are present..) to reproduce the problem. We could then work on doing whats required to resolve it properly. All of the many production deployments I know of Synapse are on non-Windows platforms. Is there a temporary workaround for you to deploy Synapse in a Linux environment for development purposes?
