PcAnywhere not working

Created: 03 Jun 2014 • Updated: 10 Nov 2014 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

When I install the agent and reboot the workstation, the screen pop up saying

No object file was specified. This may have occurred because you are starting the host for the first time, using the service contral Panel Applet.

to start the host, you may try one of the following:

1). Specify the name of the a Be Host file (*.BHF) in the Start Parametrs for the host using Services Contral Panel Applet.

2). Start the host from the pcAnywhere Manager

3). Open a Be Host file (*.BHF) in Explorer

What should I do?
