Hi Greg -

I don't like the look of your PROCD_ADDRESS setting above for an XP machine. The PROCD_ADDRESS setting points to a named pipe used for communication - normally you would never need to change it from what the installer program sets up. Above you have it setup to be a filename in the $(LOCK) directory -- that is all well and good on Linux/Unix. But on Windows, named pipes live in a different namespace than the filesystem (sigh). It looks like you took the setting for PROCD_ADDRESS off of your Linux config file. On your windows machine, shutdown the schedd and try changing your condor_config to exactly the following:

   PROCD_ADDRESS = \\.\pipe\condor_procd_pipe

Then restart the schedd. The above is what PROCD_ADDRESS is set to be if you were to run the Condor installer on Windows. Unfortunately, PROCD_ADDRESS is a setting that will have a different value on Linux than on Windows.

Hope the above helps
