Launcher problem on boot-up

December 17, 2012 at 03:04:56
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP3, 2.394 GHz / 1023 MB
On boot up in a box headed "Launcher" the following message:
pCmdTemp->GetCommand ID().Find(sCmdKey) != -1 - A same priority command already exists
with an "OK" button to say I have seen it.

Any ideas what it may refer to and how I can track down the problem and sort it out?

(Suspect internet server as I have 2 PC connected to a recently installed TP-LINK)

If you think that the problem might be a second PC, disconnect it & try it again. The error message is saying that the function calls, denoted by () already exist in the code & shouldn't be called a second time. Is it a game that's causing the error?

Thanks Guapo.

I don't think it is a game, but cannot be sure.
It comes up as booting finishes when only the main PC is on.
I may well have mixed something up connecting the two PCs to the modem through what seems to be called a switch, a small gadget between the modem and the two PCs which is supposed to connect them both separately to the web. I had a small USB modem before and a link from the main PC to the second. But we had to leave the main PC on all the time so that the second connected in, and I hoped to be able to make them independent.

But I cannot be sure which of the many launchers this refers to - is there any way to check and find out?

Sorry for delay in replying - bad week.

The basic LAN should be:

Modem > Router > Switch > All Deivces

In some cases the modem & the router are all in one & there may not be a switch either. However, what I don't do is use a PC as a router.

As far as I am aware the modem is also the router, but French terminology may be confusing me. However, for the internet link, what you are saying is what I thought I was doing, so I will check it out.
As far as the use of the PC as a router is concerned, what I had before may be of interest. I had a little Sagem modem. Connected to a USB slot onthe PC. Then I ran an ethernet connection from this PC to the one upstairs. Perhaps it shouldn't have worked, but it did.
Thanks for your help. I will have to track down this launcher message by trial and error.

Have a good Xmas.

Internet Connection Sharing can work. I'm just not a fan of it. Not only that, I have more than 2 machines on my network, so I like a router & a switch.

Just one more question - even on Xmas Day and already stuffed with Xmas Dinner.

I intend to have another go at the Ethernet set up in the hope of getting rid of that persistent message....

Start by uninstalling all "Orange" files and data on both PCs, then ...

> PC1
modem/router (Sagem Fast 1201 v2) > switch
> PC2

OK - I install data from the internet providers disc (Orange) for the modem and the connection on to PC1. What do I need to install on PC2 ? Do these 2PC make a network and do both need to be set up with the Network wizard?
