When starting a multiple TC clients simultaneously with dso-java.bat, “boot-jr-path.bat” is called which utilizes a temporary file name “var~”. Because this file gets locked while in use, concurrently running scripts will error out.

I have attached a modified boot-jar-path.bat file that calls setlocal and always sets the temp filename to a %RANDOM% value. There is still a chance the random number generator could return the same value for concurrently running scripts… so the ultimate fix should use a more robust method of generating a unique filename.

Please ignore the attached batch file. It is not a solution. It does not work.

use both %RANDOM% and %TIME% to ensure uniqueness of temp file


  • if not defined TMPFILE set TMPFILE=%TEMP%\var~
  • call :GETTEMPNAME %TC_JAVACMD% %JAVA_OPTS% -cp %TC_JAR% com.tc.object.tools.BootJarSignature >%TMPFILE% for /F %%i in (%TMPFILE%) do @set DSO_BOOT_JAR_NAME=%%i del %TMPFILE% @@ -72,6 +72,10 @@ if %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 goto error goto return

Verified with 3.1.0-nighlty rev13396, executing the pojo samples run.bat multiple times really quick, it is working fine.
