Bug 46338


GemBuilder for Smalltalk/VW

8.4, 8.3, 8.2

Loading the incorrect client parcel succeeds but reports failure

Loading GBS v8.2, 8.3, or 8.4 into a VisualWorks image involves loading the GbsTools parcel, which automatically loads the VisualWorks version-specific additional parcel that is appropriate for the current version of VisualWorks, either 7.x or 8.x.  If you accidentally request to load the incorrect additional parcel, GBS will detect this and load the correct parcels.

However, the attempt to load the incorrect additional parcel in 8.2 or 8.3 results in VW error on load failure, which reports that the load was aborted. This refers only to the load of the incorrect parcel; GBS otherwise was loaded correctly; check the Transcript for errors.

In 8.4, this reports an error and the parcel is not loaded.
