SYMPTOMS

When you try to open an .sprj file by using the Sequencer, the operation is unsuccessful. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
The Sequencer could not create an instance of the DOM DOC Document.
The Sequencer will now close.

CAUSE

This issue may occur if a directory path that is specified in the .sprj file does not exist or is inaccessible.

This condition may occur when an .sprj file is created on a system that is running Microsoft Windows 2000 (C:\WINNT) and is opened later on a system that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (C:\WINDOWS).

Additionally, this condition may occur if the following conditions are true:
  • The .sprj file is created when the Sequencer is installed to the following folder:
    C:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid Sequencer
  • The .sprj file is opened later when the Sequencer is installed to the following folder:
    D:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid Sequencer

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, edit the .sprj file by using a text editor to correct the paths for the following NAME attributes of the DEFAULT elements:
  • AdditionalVSFFiles
  • LogPath
  • DocRoot
  • SequencerRoot
  • ScratchFolder
For example, the AdditionalVSFFiles attribute may appear as follows.
<DEFAULT Name="AdditionalVSFFiles" Value="C:\WINNT\system32\cabinet.dll; C:\WINNT\system32\msi.dll;C:\WINNT\system32\msiexec.exe;C:\WINNT\system32 \msihnd.dll;C:\WINNT\system32\msimsg.dll"/>
Change this attribute to appear as follows.
<DEFAULT Name="AdditionalVSFFiles" Value="C:\WINDOWS\system32\cabinet.dll; C:\WINDOWS\system32\msi.dll;C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe;C:\WINDOWS\system32\msihnd.dll;C:\WINDOWS\system32\msimsg.dll"/>
The SequencerRoot attribute may appear as follows.
<DEFAULT Name="SequencerRoot" Value="C:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid Sequencer"/>
Change this attribute to appear as follows.
<DEFAULT Name="SequencerRoot" Value="D:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid Sequencer"/>
