Failed to create process error when trying to use the CORBA Server or Client Wizards

By: Angel Martinez

Abstract: this article explains what to try if the CORBA wizards fail to generate the proper .pas files

Problem:


Running the Corba Wizards from the Oject Repository (File | New | Other | Select the CORBA tab and choose the CORBA Cleint or CORBA Server wizard) fails after selecting the IDL file and clicking the Generate button. It fails with the message:
Failed to create process. The system cannot find the file specified.

Solution:


This problem is caused by having the wrong JRE installed on the machine. Download and install the 1.3 (make sure it is 1.3.0 as later versions will not work) JRE or JDK from Sun's website at: http://java.sun.com. This should resolve this issue.
