I experienced the same problem.  The problem has to do with the type of
display you are running the "ovw -config" command on.  You need to run the
command on an 8-bit display, not anything more.  When I ran this command on
our 150 X-station, I did not have this problem.  Once you run this command
on an 8-bit display, you can go back to the normal display.  You can see
what bit your display is by executing the command /usr/lpp/X11/bin/xdpyinfo.
You can also reference my problem PMR 30435, Branch 379, if necessary.

The problem with the zero length file has been fixed.  The problem I'm
having is
compiling third party bitmaps (CiscoWorks, SPMA, etc.) for use with the Web
When the command "ovw -webconfig" is run this compiles the bitmaps from
"/usr/OV/bitmaps/C" to

This is a fix that was in the release notes for 5.1,   see IX78482 for

Check for a zero length file in /usr/OV/bitmaps/C/  I think it is
or .p  Whatever the zero length file is, delete them all:
    # rm wsc1600*   for example.  This is a file installed by ciscoworks.
