Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

The file names for log & trace change and are no longer following the naming conventions on Windows 32-bit Agents. In both INI files (ucxjwi3.ini, ucxjwx6.ini) the same names are incorrectly configured.

The ucxjwi3.ini configuration looks like:

 
logging=..\temp\ucxjwi6_log_##.TXT
file=..\temp\ucxjwi6_trace_##.txt

In v12.0, Automation Engine use the OS indicators: WI3 for 32bit and WX6 for 64bit

If both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows agents installed on the same machine and they are using a common TEMP folder, a naming conflict will be encountered.

 

Cause
