Shareplex for Oracle Cop will not start in SpUtil or Services Manager. Microsoft Management Console dialog box state: "Could not start the SharePlex 2100 service on Local Computer. Error 193: %1 is not a valid Win32 application."
CAUSE This issue may occur if the path of the executable file for the service contains spaces. When Windows starts a service, it parses the path of the service from left to right. If both of the following conditions are true:
-The path of a services executable file contains spaces. (i.e. Properties of SharePlex 2100 in Services windows). -There is a file or folder on your computer�s hard disk that has the same name as a file or folder in the path to the services executable file.
Windows may locate and try to run the file or folder before it locates and runs the executable file for the service.
For example, if the path of the executable file for a service is C:\Program Files\Quest Software\SharePlex\bin\sp_copsrv.exe, and if a folder that is named C:\Program also exists on your hard disk, Windows locates the C:\Program folder on your hard disk before the C:\Program Files\Quest Software\SharePlex\bin\sp_copsrv.exe file, and then tries to run it.
