By default the IDV writes to: <user home>/.unidata/idv/DefaultIdv The process must not have write access to its own home directory. You can tell the IDV to use another directory with the "-userpath" argument. As to the headless exception - you cannot run the idv in headless more (i.e., with the -Djava.awt.headless=true). The JVM needs to have some windowing environment to use. -Jeff Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: NCG-485587 Department: Support IDV Priority: Normal Status: Closed
