On the executable  add -newinstance if you want style also -styler

Sample

"C:\Program Files\PTC\Arbortext Editor\bin\x64\editor.exe" -styler -newinstance

Re: [A14123] Arbor Text Session issue

Hi Bryon,

for opening the files,we will set the default editor as Arbor Text.

So that whenever we will open our files,it just opens Arbor Text.

Earlier it used to work fine,But not sure suddenly why we are getting this popup.

Could you please let us know how we can add the commandline  -styler -newinstance in this scenario..

Re: [A14123] Arbor Text Session issue

That would have been a good idea to tell you where to make the change. Find the Arbortext shortcut on the desktop, right click and choose properties in the target line  add the -styler -newinstance commands to the editor.exe exectuable.

Hi,

None of the above things can actually be recommended in our application.

Could you please let us know the root cause of the issue.

We have verified the issue on different machines.It is recurring instantly.

I have tried deleting the cache folder and it worked fine in my case.But not on other machines.

Could anyone please take a look on it..

Re: [A14123] Arbor Text Session issue

Does this happen when you are using object Browse from Arbortext Editor or are you clicking  the Open In Arbortext from Windchill?

We recently discovered if you are running Arbortext as "Administrator" then when you try use the Open in Arbortext Action or button in Windchill we get the error you have shown.

Re: [A14123] Arbor Text Session issue

We are not using windchill.We will set ArborText as default editor for xml.

When we open the xmls ,the  problem is occuring..

We are using ArborText 5.4 M140.

Could u please share any work around for this..

Re: [A14123] Arbor Text Session issue

Open the help center and search for Startup Command Syntax.

  • -newinstance — Makes it possible to run simultaneous sessions of PTC Arbortext Editor and PTC Arbortext Architect (assuming adequate licensing). To do this, the startup command must include the -newinstance parameter.

    Examples:

  • editor -newinstance
  • editor -architect -newinstance
