imagine that excel needs a gui to run, even though it's a macro. That's
probably why you need USE_VISIBLE_DESKTOP.
not sure about the credd problem. When you submit a job directly to a
winxp client what does "condor_q -analyze" say?
i am using condor
6.9.3 with a win2k3 server as master with an xp slave. when jobs get
allocated to the slave they exit with the message below unless i have
USE_VISIBLE_DESKTOP enabled on the slave. if USE_VISIBLE_DESKTOP is
enabled the job runs successfully. i do not have condor_credd daemon
running in this scenario. the jobs are excel spreadsheets which autorun
a macro and exit and saving results.
when trying to run credd daemon and use run as owner on the w2k3
server, jobs never get allocated to the xp client. all jobs get
allocated to the w2k3 server and run successfully. i tried dozens of
confi variations with HOSTALLOW***, included the necessary vars CREDD_HOST,
CREDD_CACHE_LOCALLY, done all the condor_store_cred variations,
so the 2
does USE_VISIBLE_DESKTOP have to be enabled for my jobs to run successfully on
the xp slave?
2. why won't the xp
slave get jobs allocated when i try to run with credd?
any ideas? thanks.

I'll test with VNC disabled and
see if that solves the problem then.
Thanks Matt and Tony!
