Trouble installing Quip2.2.1.1

I am having some trouble installing Quip
It seems to install OK, and several of your examples (TREEQ6 and others) work fine including scrolling in the query window. But when I try to run my own queries, which work fine under Quip 2.1.1, several unexpected things happen.

1. Sometimes I can load the query from the OPEN command on the file menu. Other times the file open dialog box disappears and the computer hangs.

2. If I am able to open the file, or if I paste a copy in from another source, I am unable to scroll in the query window.

3. Although I cannot reproduce a successful run right now, I believe I have been able to run my own queries a few times. Most often I get errors, usually but not always with the following messages:

In the output window:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<quip:SystemError xmlns:quip=“”>
<![CDATA[does not exist
Action: getDirectoryContents
Reason: No such file or directory

In the Select C:\WINNT\System32\cmd.exe window:

log4j:ERROR No appenders could be found for category (com.softwareag.common.instrumentation.logging.log4,Logger).
log4j:ERROR Please initialize the log4j system properly.


Just a guess – the readme file requests that you delete the quip.profile from your settings directory (if you are installing over a previous Quip version).

That did it. Thanks!

But there’s a difference in performance between the two versions. For preliminary tests, I have a collection of 8 patient records – total size of XML file 278 Kb. Under Quip Version 2.1, the following query takes 4.6 seconds and correctly produces seven output records(including the two duplicates):

for $b in collection(“TryOut”)/PatientRecord,
$c in $b//ValveReplacement[./@Valve=‘Mitral’]


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<quip:result xmlns:quip=“”>


To process the same query, Version 2.2 requires 2 minutes, 21 seconds and delivers only two of the output records:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<quip:result xmlns:quip=“”>


Also both programs produce the following error message:

log4j:ERROR: No apperners could be found for category(com.softwareag.comm.instrumentation.logging.Log4jLogger).
log4j:ERROR: Please initialize the log4j system properly.
