I tend to remember that PWS initializeAll actually first checks the
version by PWS checkVersion. As to your case, it is *not necessary. So
you should bypass that and everything will be fine.
Actually I have been sending out the following message (kind of, not
exactly the wording) for several times
o PWS initializeAll is not mandatory. What it does is just to set up the
following Servers after validating the version.
For you to work on a web workspace to admin. the server remotely
For live chating
This is the default server
For you to have fun, examples including a factorial computing form
For you to impress people by showing the screenshot of the server
For you to access the code even if you are away from the server
o smtlk - For you to read the code from an ordinary web client
o chunk - For you to read the code from within squeak
An example for group discussion
o And thus, it is not needed if you don't need those functionalities.
