NIPC Library missing from StormC?
« on: November 24, 2003, 11:01:53 AM »
Hi everybody, I have just got hold of the StormC 4.0 package and installed it, along with all the most recent patches available. I have the following problem with RunStormServer in my WBStartup drawer: after Amithlon boot this prog gives the following error message:

   Cannot open nipc.library verison 41
   StormC:StormSYS/StormShellServer failed return code 900

It seems that this library is missing from the package but also from all other patches. Where can I find this missing library?

Thank you and regards.

NIPC.library is part of the Envoy package. You don't need it to compile anything, so you can remove RunStormServer from the wbstartup drawer. Think it was added to make projects with multiple programmers possible.

It's hard to get these days. I got it from Softhut a number of years ago. Otherwise there's eBay or websites of dubious legality. The patch to bring it up to v3.1 is on Aminet.

Envoy is a *fantastic* package, though. It's extremely lightweight and probably the best solution for Amiga-to-Amiga networked filesharing. Amazing things are possible with the API. I would love to see new developments around Envoy.

I use it by myself to share filesystems (hard drive partitions) on different Amigas across the network. Kindof like Samba, but easier for me to deal with, and felt a bit more natural in the Amiga environment.

You can buy it with a two user licence as part of the Amiga Link pennant from relec.ch if they still have stock.

It seems IAM was the copyrightholder (or just licensee with the ruins of C= still the copyrightholder?) and stopped selling it in 1999:

http://web.archive.org/web/19990203071727/http://www.iam.com/amiga/

The domain iam.com was sold soon after, judging from archive.org.

It appears Heinz Wröbel kept working on Envoy til v3.x, selling through Schatzruhe.

Your best bet would be to try to dig up Heinz Wröbel as he seems to have been the last person to work on it, thus likely the current copyrightholder. Maybe he's willing to put it in the public domain.

Couldn't find a Heinz Wröbel after a quick google search. Only found a dead German newsreader of almost the same name.

Heinz' email address has changed several times during the last 25 years - the last I know of is registered at GMX (officially used 2010 the last time). Maybe Olaf Barthel is still in contact with Heinz Wrobel and can help out.

I spoke to Dale Larson (original author and IAM founder) about Envoy at the Amiga 30 event in 2015. As I recall, he thinks Heinz still has the code.

I managed to contact Heinz Wrobel a couple of years ago (2 or 3?). I asked him about putting Envoy 3 free. He simply said no.

Well, then it's not much to do.
But please ask him the next time you see him :)
