- Subject: HLDS and Cygwin
There seems to be a problem running HLDS (half-life dedicated server) for
windows and Cygwin and possible other similar apps.
1) Full install of HLDS, lets call it hlds1
2) Second complete install of HLDS in separate directory, call hlds2
I have no problem executing the hlds1 or hlds2 by themselves. But when I
try to run both at the same time the 2nd one does not run at all.
If I kill hlds1 and run hlds2 it starts right up.
If I run either hlds1 or hlds2 and try to even execute the other one from
file explorer I get an error "Unable to load engine, image is corrupt."
Although if I run hlds1 and hlds2 from file explorer they both run fine.
I have seen on the net claims that cygwin has:
"NOTE: There are issues with the cygwin.dll and separating simultaneous
user space. Use with caution!"
They suggest using SSH.COM's SSH solution for this issue.
Has anyone else run into this?
I tried to even run firedaemon from cygwin but cannot do it without admin
so thats out. I also tried to run psexec but it does not work under
cygwin either apprently. This approach was to try and get cygwin to start
hlds as services by a non Admin user to get around the problem.
The main thing I am trying to do is have a normal (non Admin) user run
hlds.exe and have multiple copies of it run on the same machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
