“Library’s host not defined in library.ini” on GUI Version Check

  • Article Type: General
  • Product: Aleph
  • Product Version: 21

Problem Symptoms:
After installing the latest service pack, Version Control / Version Check -- whether performed automatically as part of client startup or manually by selecting "Version Check" -- issues the message "œLibrary's host not defined in library.ini."

Incorrect setting of "Library=" in alephcom.ini.

Correct the value of the "Library=" parameter in the PC's .\Alephcom\tab\alephcom.ini file. The library specified must be one which is included in the .\Alephcom\tab\library.ini file.

Additional Information

alephcom.ini has these lines: [VersionControl] Library=XXX01 "XXX01" needs to be a bib library for which there is an entry in the .\Alephcom\tab\library.ini. It must be UPPERcase: ABC01, XYZ01, etc.
