Subject: Re: [Condor-users] condor_submit and suppressing program popups
Thank you for your comments Andrew.
I finally gave up on using this program for the time being because I came
to the same conclusion. We are investigating Condor and its use at USGS,
and therefore, my goal was to assess who would benefit and how we could
use Condor. Unfortunately, I had less than a week to learn Condor well
enough as well as implement several different examples of its use. This
program with the popup was our first test piece, which made it difficult
for troubleshooting. I read some where that it is possible to pass a variable
to address popups but I am pretty sure this cannot be done and I was not
able to figure out a method. The popup appears to be caused from the Fortran
windows compiler, so we hope that the original programmer can resolve this
issue, or we might be able to help them. In any case, I am glad your group
found the same thing. I was not sure if this was something I was doing
wrong with the Condor configuration or some other issue.
Again thanks for the feedback,

Did you resolve this issue? Something similar stumped
us for a while as an error message was popping up a Windows alert box,
and locking the condor job mysteriously until we had the "ah-ha"
moment.. You absolutely have to get rid of that pop-up.

I have a program that apparently was developed in fortran and then compiled
for a windows 32bit system. The program will run by passing a file input,
but at the completion of the program the following popup occurs: "Program
terminated with exit code 0". This code is generally an indication
that a program ran successfully. Based on what I found online, this is
an artifact of the compiler.
The problem: condor_submit will run the program but then then job never
finishes, which I believe it is related to this popup. The GUI is suppressed
on the individual machines by condor, all data is created and the CPU drops
down to 0. The host reports that the job is still running and therefore,
the data is not returned and the machine is tied up.
