I can't start Wildcatt--It says "Could not initialize ODAPI--directory is busy."

This error occurs if Wildcatt terminates abnormally for some reason and you try to start it up again. The abnormal termination of Wildcatt caused some of the initialization files to remain open and therefore they can't be accessed when you try to restart Wildcatt. The solution is to reboot your computer. This will close all open files and allow Wildcatt to resume normal operation.
