RTC Visual Studio Plugin 5.0.2 CRRTC8500E error when trying to load a Workspace

Marco Simioni (1112) | asked Jun 09 '15, 6:33 a.m.
Dear Sirs,

I'm experiencing a serious issue with RTC Visual Studio plugin 5.0.2, Visual Studio 2012 Update 4, Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit.

I can successfully create a new workspace, but when it comes to load the workspace I have the following error:

CRRTC8500E: Server Error: Error executing http://localhost:61997/service/

Exception type:
Exception message:
Error executing http://localhost:61997/service/
Inner exception:
System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: A connection that was expected to be kept alive was closed by the server. ---> System.IO.IOException: Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

   at ar) in c:\RTC_BUILDS\I5.0.2_20141022-0800\Foundation\ServiceInterfaceProxy\WebRequestInvocationProxy.cs:line 313

I can succesfully load a workspace from the Eclipse RTC Client 5.0.2.

I also noticed that when I try to double-click a modified file under my Pending Changes, the comparison tool just opens and closes immediately without any reason or error - thus I'm not able to use the compare anymore.

BUT The comparison tool on my Visual Studio RTC plugin works if I keep the RTC Eclipse client open (the Load Workspace feature doesn't work anyway).

I already tried the following:
- uninstalled the RTC Plugin, RTC Client, IBM Installation Manager, Visual Studio
- reboot
- reinstalled everything, without any luck

Thank you in advance for your support.

Hi all, I have an update.

I think I've found a workaround.

I have replaced the ..\Rational Team Concert Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE\3rd Party\scmtools with the ..\TeamConcert\scmtools ones.

Given that the java runtimes configured in scm.ini are different, I also copied ..\TeamConcert\jdk to ..\Rational Team Concert Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE\3rd Party\jdk.

And now it works! I can see my pending changes comparisons and I can also load a workspace from the Visual Studio plugin.

It looks that in my environment the scmtools+jre versions shipped with the Visual Studio IDE plugin do not work, while the scmtools+jdk versions provided with the eclipse client work perfectly.

FYI the [1] is the scm.exe --version output of the scmtools shipped with the plugin, while [2] is the scm.exe --version output of the scmtools shipped with the client.

Let me know if you are interested in investigating further on this issue.

I have another update:

If I use the original scmtools from the plugin folder and change the -vm parameter to use the JDK from the RTC client I have the following error:

Cannot load 32-bit SWT libraries on 64-bit JVM

Then I checked the difference between the Jdk/Jre supplied with the two apps and this is the result:

This is the output from the plugin folder:

C:\Program Files\IBM\Rational Team Concert Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE\3rd Party\jre\bin>java -version

and this is the output from the client folder:

Please note that I installed the plugin from and the client from manually configuring the two repositories via Installation Manager (internal version 1.8.2001.20150409_1833).

Why there is such a difference ?
