Exceed 10 Display and Keysim Issues

Exceed 10 Display and Keysim Issues

Exceed 10 Display and Keysim Issues


I am running Exceed 10 on a Windows 2003 Server platform and I am having two big problems.

The first deals with the way Exceed opens.  Most of the time when I open Exceed it opens properly and "Exceed" is displayed in the task bar.  However, occasionally when exceed opens, I see "Exceed (:1:0)" in the task bar.  (Our displays only come up on display 0).  Once this happens, the only way I can get Exceed to open looking for Display 0 is to remove Exceed and re-install it.  Is there a way to prevent Exceed from opening and looking for a Display other than 0.  If this situation does occur, is there a way to fix Exceed without reinstalling it.

The second issue deals with keybaord mappings.  When my displays open, I get many errors similiar to below:

Warning: translation table syntax error: Unknown keysym name: osfDelete

Warning: ... found while parsing ':s a <Key>osfDelete:    cut-primary()'

Warning: translation table syntax error: Unknown keysym name: osfDelete

When the display opens, the Backspace, Delete, and Arrow keys do not function properly.  Are there any suggestions as to how to eliminate these errors and make those keys work properly?

Thank You,
