ihostid.exe error message "not a valid win32 application"

Technote (FAQ)


Why do I get the "not a valid win32 application" error while executing the ihostid.exe command?


This error might occur if you are not using the ILOG License Manager (ILM) version corresponding to your hardware platform.

For example, if you have a 32-bit XP machine, and if you have installed a 64-bit ILM, then you will encounter the "not a valid win32 application" error while trying to execute the ihostid.exe command. Similar errors can occur if you try to run a 64-bit ILM on a 32-bit Unix operating system.

Determine whether you have a platform with 32-bit or 64-bit architecture, then use the appropriate ILM version.
