Application runs but not as a Windows service oracore

I have a weird problem and I was hoping somebody might be able to help me. I have an application that we developed that uses an Oracle database. The application can be run in user mode(double clicking on the file) or as a Windows service. We have always used the Oracle Database client to connect to the Database in user mode and it has worked. Using the same configuration we were able to run our application as a service and it has always worked. The problem now is that if we use a newer Oracle Client (>= 10.2) it will not work as a service. When I say it doesn't work I mean that the application never starts and the Windows Event Viewer log states an APPCRASH in oracore10.dll or oracore11.dll.
It doesn't seem to matter which database we use, 10G, 11G, because if we use the 10.1 version of the Oracle Database Client to connect to these databases it works. However if we use any client>=10.2 the application crashes.
Any suggestions?

So I stopped any Oracle windows services that were running, deleted the only oracle directory on the machine, and reinstalled 11.2 client. The same results occur, I can connect to and start my application in user mode but not as a service. I checked the version# of OCI.dll, 1 instance of it on the machine, and it does state that it is version The setup I have is:
Machine 1: Server 2008 R2
Oracle 11g database
Oracle 11g client
my application
Machine 2: Windows 7 64-bit
Oracle 11g client
my application
I get the exact same results if I try to run my application on the same machine as the database (machine 1) or across the network (machine 2).
I've setup the connection using Oracle Client's Net Configuration Assistant, added the Local Net Service Name Configuration, and am using TCP. At the end of the Local Net Service Name Configuration I get "Success" when talking to the database.
Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.

    I am having a similar problem. Running Xp.
    Latest revision of firefox.
    After using firefox for a while if I exit, parent.lock is locked and i have to reboot to reload firefox.
    I have killed all firefox applications from task manager (usually there are none). and I have tried 3 different "file unlock" programs including unlocker to no avail.
    I also recently installed a program that shows -all- open files, and parent.lock is not listed, and thus not closable/unlockable from there.

  • V6.01, Windows 7, click on icon, "firefox is already running but not responding" Task manager doesn't know about it. I can't quit it or get it to load. Brand new install. What to do?

    Brand new Lenovo computer, Windows 7 Home. New install of Firefox 6.0.1, set as default browser, don't launch when I click done. Icon appears in tray. I click the icon, and a message says "firefox is running but not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing process, or reboot". It's not obviously running. I can't find a way to make it quit. Task manager doesn't list it as a current application. Uninstall using the control panel uninstall function and then reinstalling gives the same message. Rebooting doesn't fix the problem and gives the same message. Firefox had been working until I tried to update my bookmarks.

    No can do. I can delete the current profile and install Firefox, which should create a new blank profile. The message still says "Firefox is already running." I can place my old profile in the proper folder, and Firefox will still be already running. I can't actually use Firefox, because even though the message says it is running, there is nothing on the screen I can access.
    After uninstalling Firefox, deleting the two items left in the Programs folder, and deleting the profile again, it still didn't work. I then got frisky and from the Roaming folder I deleted the Mozilla folder which contains the Firefox folder which contains the now empty Profiles folder. That worked, and a new set of folders with a new blank profile were created. So apparently it was the empty folders that never got deleted that were causing the issue.
    Thanks for your suggestion. It got me thinking.

  • Firefox 29.0.1 on Windows 7 (64-bit): ALWAYS get "Firefox is already running but not responding..." error and need Task Manager to close/restart Firefox.

    I run Firefox 29.0.1 on Windows 7 (64 bit) and I get the "Firefox is already running but not responding. In order to open the program you must close the existing window." error. EVERY TIME I try to start Firefox. The posted solution works to start the program, but it is not a permanent solution. I go through the Task Manager and end the old Firefox process, then I can open a new window. While working, I can open multiple tabs and multiple windows, everything seems to (usually) work the way it should. Then after I completely exit Firefox, in order to open the program again I need to fix the SAME error again. Every time. It doesn't seem to hurt anything really, but it is quite annoying.
    I used to get this same error on some of the older Firefox versions but it was only once in a while. With the new 29.0.1 it is literally EVERY TIME I TRY TO RUN FIREFOX!!!!
    So, down to the big question: is there a permanent fix for this yet? Or will there be one included in the next version update? Or am I going to have to go back to Internet Explorer? I know I am not alone in this experience; i've seen several other users posting similar questions but none of them received satisfactory answers. So what's the story here, team Firefox?

    This is not a cure but will make it easier if Firefox locks up.

  • Firefox is already running, but not responding to open a new window

    I closed the only opened Firefox process that was running. Then clicked the Fox to start Firefox again. I received a message: Firefox is already running, but not responding, to open a new window. You must close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system. This is a stupid message since there is no Firefox in process.

    A few times a week

    Firefox is shutting down windows I want to remain open. Example: I am done viewing one window. I click the X to shut the window and it shuts two windows. Every single time, attempt to close one windows, two windows close. Lately, I have been opening several windows with nothing but google search, just so it will shut that window and not something else I want to remain open. I could understand this if I was using tabs, but I am not. This has been going on for over two weeks. I don't like going back to history to open a window, I did not want closed in the first place. Isn't that what 'Windows' is all about? Any ideas?

  • Why can you run windows on a mac, but not mac on windows

    I dont understant why you can run windows on a mac, but not mac on windows.  Any help.  I would purchase OS X Mountain Lion if you gave me a way.

    Microsoft builds software to run on other companies' hardware, pretty much exclusively if you don't count the long line of failed devices: Zune, Windows phone, and now the Surface.
    Apple builds hardware. They support that hardware with their own operating system. It is designed to run only on their very tightly integrated hardware. Trying to write software for the plethora of crap being sold would be a failing proposition and would divert resources away from the great software they provide for their hardware customers.
    The hardware and software are very well engineered to provide the best possible experience.
    If you want to experience a Mac, buy a Mac.

  • "Firefox is already running but not responding" - have tried all the usual solutions.

    The message I'm getting is the standard: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding." I'm using a PC with Windows 7.
    I've tried:
    - Opening task manager and manually ending the process. This didn't work because the process is not listed in applications, processes, or services.
    - Deleting the parent/lock file. This didn't work because the file is not in any of the firefox folders. I've checked APPDATA/Local/Firefox as well as APPDATA/Roaming/Firefox, and the original install folder just to be thorough. It's not a hidden file either - I have those set to display.
    - Creating a new profile and importing settings from the old one. I can't import settings because the old profile is still running.
    - Restarting before and after each of these potential solutions, including restarting in safe mode, shutting off the computer and waiting a bit before restarting, etc.
    All I really want back are my bookmarks, which I've spent quite a while creating. Unfortunately, there is no file I can find for the default profile that has the bookmarks stored. When I created a new profile, a folder appeared with its name in the APPDATA/Roaming/Firefox folder, with all of the bookmarks, etc. There is no such folder for the default profile though - which is the one I want. I've even tried switching to Chrome and importing bookmarks, but that doesn't work because the bookmarks can't be imported while Firefox is still running.

    Does a new profile work?<br />
    If there is no profile present then you also get that error about "Firefox is already running but not responding"
    If you uninstalled Firefox at any time in the past and removed your personal data or deleted that profile folder yourself then you no longer have a profile to start with or restore files from.

  • Firefox stops loading new pages, displays "Loading". When I close it it goes. But when I restart it gives me "Another version is running, but not responding. This requires a power cycle reboot.

    Version 3.6.18. Running on Windows XP Pro. (kept current)
    This happens on a variety of pages. I get the little Loading thing in the tab, with the circle moving. So I X out (to exit Firefox). When I go to restart I get the error message "Another version of FireFox is running, but not responding". I give Windows the "three finger salute", and go to Task Manager, and do not see any reference to Firefox, and the Performance, and Processes seem OK. But it never seems to close the earlier Firefox, and won't let me open a new one. Any suggestions? Super Thanks for your help!

    Hi Andis.
    First of all, this is completely normal behavior, although it's a bit irritating, I know. What happens is that when you close Firefox, despite the window disappearing right there and then, Firefox keeps running for a little bit until the whole closing procedure is completed. This can take a fraction of a second on fast computers, or can take a few seconds on slow computers or when Firefox is storing a large session (if you save your tabs). All you have to do is wait a bit until Firefox closes, and then open it again.
    To see if it's still running, you can press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and then, under the Processes tab, you can see if firefox.exe is still there. If it's taking an unusual amount of time to close (which happens very rarely, and only if the browser freezes on exit), you can force the application to terminate from this application (task manager).
    Firefox 4.0 will reduce by 97% the time it takes firefox.exe to close, so this problem will be basically erased for Firefox's next version.
    Until then, I can recommend you this extension, which helps you restart your browser more easily and without bothering about closing times:
    Hopefully this will help.

  • Once I turn off the browser and then try to use it later, I get a message saying its already running but not responding. tells me to close it which I cant do since its already closed. Forces me to restart my computer

    Each time I start, use and close Firefox, when I try to use it the 2nd time, I get a message saying its already running but not responding. It Isn't. I have to restart my computer everytime I want to use Firefox.

    <u>'''Safe Mode'''</u>
    You may need to use '''[[Safe Mode]]''' (click on "Safe Mode" and read) to localize the problem. Firefox SafeMode is a diagnostic mode that disables extensions and some other features of Firefox. If you are using a theme, switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes before starting Safe Mode. When entering Safe Mode, do not check any items on the entry window, just click "Continue in Safe Mode". Test to see if the problem you are experiencing is corrected.
    '''[[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]'''

    '''[[Basic Troubleshooting]]'''
    If the problem does not occur in Safe-mode then disable all of your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears. You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via File > Restart Firefox (on Mac: Firefox > Quit). You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Safe mode start window.
