I have tried for a few weeks now to get PCBE to play nice with SP8. It will not install, much less run. Went thru APC's email support which was absolutely useless. And today called their telephone support which was somewhat better, but still unable to give me a resolution. When I asked when they would have software that would work with SP8, they were "unsure." Making software that works with Netware is apparently the very last item on their to-do list. He theorized that perhaps it would work with a lesser version of Java: 1.4.1. I have not run down this theory just yet.

When I attempt to run the install.ncf file, the software brings up a window in startx that says: Unable to install files. See errors.log for details.

Errors.log looks like this:

Jumping ahead... if I can't get this to run, does anyone know a software that WILL work with Netware and shut down the server if there is a power interruption?
