Both Workbench and Pro/E Wildfire 2.0 (64-bit Unix), are installed locally on the same computer, and both Workbench 8.0 & 9.0 along with Pro/E launch and run correctly by themselves.

When the user tries to import a Pro/E part by pressing "New Simulation" in Workbench, then the text window gives the following error:

ERROR: NMS client: internal error occured.
Failed to initialize communications. Some features are disabled.

After that they get 2 pop-up windows:

Plugin Error: Unable to start Pro/Engineer for data transfer


Plugin Error: Attached failed.

What is causing Pro/e Wildfire 2.0 and WB 9.0 to not work together properly on HP 11i v1.0 or 11.11?

There is a knowledge base article from PTC. It says to set the environment variable LANG to "C" for the error.

Title The Error Message "/usr/lib/ Unresolved symbol: srandom (code) from /disk2/proe2001/hp8k/obj/pro IOT trap" is Displayed When Opening Files in Pro/ENGINEER.
Product Pro/ENGINEER Module GLOBAL FUNCTIONS TPI ID 111686 Created 27-NOV-01
Workstation HP UNIX Reported In Release 2001 Reported In Datecode
SPR None Resolved In Release Resolved In Datecode
The error message:

/usr/lib/ Unresolved symbol: srandom
(code) from /disk2/proe2001/hp8k/obj/pro IOT

is displayed in the command prompt where Pro/ENGINEER is launched when opening or importing data on an HP-UX 11.0 workstation and the session has been remotely displayed to another workstation. Pro/ENGINEER subsequently exits.

Alternate Technique
See Resolution Below

The environment variable "LANG" should be set to "C" prior to starting Pro/ENGINEER. Ensure that this variable has been properly set by using the following command from the command prompt: echo $LANG
