Post subject:  RB problems in Ubuntu 8.10 VM? *SOLVED*

I'm using REALbasic 2008r5 in a Ubuntu 8.10 VM (using VMWare Server for the VM) and a Windows XP SP2 host. So far, I've been unable to get ANY projects to run in the Ubuntu VM; REALbasic just displays the message that "The application has not connected to the IDE". I figured out that it's probably a network problem, but my virtual network is good - the same virtual network setup works for a Windows XP VM.
Any ideas on how to fix this? It's really driving me crazy as I badly need RB on the Ubuntu system... :cry:

Thanks! :D

When you run your project do you see the debug executable built? Does it have the right permissions set (i.e. is it executable)?

I never checked that... I will have to do so. Fortunately/unfortunately, the problem fixed itself after a computer reimage. Now, I can run my RB apps successfully but shared folder support is broken... *sigh* guess I can't have both things working. I definitely prefer RB working, though!!! :D

You're dead-on. I was having the problem again today so I checked the permissions and sure enough - I didn't have execute permissions on the build folder. Fixed the permissions and tried again - RB ran the program without a hitch. Thank you! :D

btw, I managed to get shared folders working too. YAY!!! :mrgreen:
