Very interesting but no reference to my problem I'm afraid.
I have gone back to the start, cleared the hard drive, installed VMS 7.3
and registered the license (choosing the right support files etc.) Then
I loaded the DW-MOTIF layered product and registered the license. In
both cases I followed the install instructions to the letter.
1. It does not come up or even attempt to come up in windows.
2. If you run the IVP and enter the node name or WSA0 (the device
it simply says "cannot open display"
3. I am exactly where I was on Friday.
4. Until I find out what "Cannot open display" means I'm stuck

(Maybe this could come in handy.)
