Hello,

I've looked around and can't find a solution to this.

Issue - OpenERP step fails to initialize on some computers

I have three computers running the latest version of PDI CE (6.0.1.0-386) with the latest versions of Java installed, the same OpenERP plugin versions connecting to the same OpenERP tables through the same network.
All three are running on Windows 10 64bit with identical antivirus and firewall setups. One computer (about 2yrs old) is not effected by this issue and has been working seamlessly for two years with PDI and OpenERP. The other two, one built about 6 months ago the other last week, both suffer from this issue.

Steps to re-create:
Setup a transformation with a verified working OpenERP database connection (i.e. "test" the connection works and also previewing the data works)
Save the transformation and run it and it fails with the below:
2016/03/19 12:54:44 - OpenERP Object Input.0 - ERROR (version 6.0.1.0-386, build 1 from 2015-12-03 11.37.25 by buildguy) : Error initializing step [OpenERP Object Input]

Close the transformation down and re-open, the connection has disappeared

Workaround:
If I create the transformation on the older computer that works fine, and then run it on one that suffers from the above problem, the transformation runs perfectly. However, if I open the transformation on one of these computers, the connection will be removed

Any suggestions of what might be different on the computers to cause this? If you need more logs/details, please ping me.

Thanks
