Try this one:

Code: Select all
yum install libxml2.i686


Should fix the issue and let system execut xmlback in order to preview mailing html/text contents

No. This problem originates in xmlback, which renders the final HTML code for the preview and mailings of OpenEMM. For performance reasons xmlback is written in C which makes it platform dependent. So far we could simply compile the C code with a C compiler from Microsoft and the result worked flawlessly. With OpenEMM 2011 for Windows it is different, and we have to dig deep - but we have almost no experience with Windows. :-(

So, the only thing I can promise right now is that we will have fixed the bug by the time we release the final version of OpenEMM 2012.

Hi,

I'm having this issue as well. And I suspect some sending issues as well but I have to test more. Does this xmlback issue cause sending problems that you know of?

You said you were able to reproduce the issue and got a good log entry so what's the problem? Do you know where in the program this failure is happening? Windows API call? System library? I have a lot of Windows experience maybe I can help.

xmlback generates a lot of log output in log file catalina output. The parse method of xmlback claims

"Unable to set variables for evaluator [1: gender]" (if type=1 is used)

and

"Unable to find valid element layout in var\\spool\\META\AgnMail=...xml.gz"

I'm using openemm on Windows 2003 and get the error:

ERROR/blockmail->layout: Unable to set variables for evaluator [1: fieldname]

whenever I use a numeric field in a target group. Is this due to xmlback also?

Well still no updates on this - imo - critical issue.

You said it will be fixed in release of OpenEMM 2012 - when we will see a RC or something? Any roadmap we could look into?

Best

While my need is coupled with this problem:

Is it possible to downgrade from 2011 to the latest 6.x version without big changes on my data?

Hello,

got the same issue on a 64Bit CentOS.

The Problem is that xmlback is 32Bit and linked against the 32Bit libxml2.so which may be not installed on a 64Bit OS.

So:
yum install libxml2.i386

installed the 32Bit version in addition to the 64Bit one and xmlback works and shows the previews.

I know this not helps Windows users, but maybe there is a way to copy/link the 32Bit Windows library file into the appropriate location?!

I have the same issue with OpenEMM 2011 on 64 Bit CentOS but

rene.beiler wrote:yum install libxml2.i386


doesn't help.

Are there any other (currently available) solutions?

Edit: This is a blocker bug to me as OpenEMM is not usable with this bug as it doesn't send mails.

I did a fresh Windows install on Windows Server 2012 - worked really fine until I ran into that very problem with xmlback.

[agnTITLE type=1] and [agnTITLEFULL type=1] are failing during preview. Other tested agn-Tags work fine.

Here is the log portion:
Code: Select all

I read all the posts, but did not find any applicable solution.
Is there still no workaround on Windows? I would really love to use it, but you can't mail without correct salutations... :cry:

(installed the current OpenEMM 2011 Win-version from Sourceforge, Tomcat 6.0.35, Python2.7, MySQL Server 5.1, JDK 1.6.0_37)

This is a known bug. We will fix it for OpenEMM 2012 (hopefully this month) and provide a backport for OpenEMM 2011 too.

You should rename it to OpenEMM 2013. :twisted:

It sucks that there is no patch for OpenEMM 2011.
