[ABBYY FineReader Engine 10] Problems with sample applications - unknown error 160


I've just installed ABBYY FineReader Engine 10 for Linux, activated it with developer trial license and started getting familiar with the API. While doing that, I wanted to run sample applications that came with the software (located in /opt/FRE10.0/Samples). At first, I tried with the simplest example (the Hello application). I built it with provided makefile, but when trying to run it, it failed with an unknown error 160.

Here is the transcript of commands and outputs of these commands:

    [dodo@photopayLaptop: ~] cd /opt/FRE10.0/Samples/Samples/Hello/
    [dodo@photopayLaptop: Hello] make
    g++ -O0 -g -ggdb -Wno-attributes -I../../../Bin/../Inc -L../../../Bin -m32 -c BstrWrap.cpp
    g++ -O0 -g -ggdb -Wno-attributes -I../../../Bin/../Inc -L../../../Bin -m32 -c FREngineLoader.cpp
    g++ -O0 -g -ggdb -Wno-attributes -I../../../Bin/../Inc -L../../../Bin -m32 -c Hello.cpp
    g++ -O0 -g -ggdb -Wno-attributes -I../../../Bin/../Inc -L../../../Bin -m32 -o Hello BstrWrap.o FREngineLoader.o Hello.o -lFREngine -lpthread -ldl -Wl,-rpath-link ../../../Bin
    [dodo@photopayLaptop: Hello] sudo /opt/FRE10.0/Bin/abbyy-fre10-licensing-service start
    [sudo] password for dodo: 
    [dodo@photopayLaptop: Hello] LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../../../Bin ./Hello
    Initializing Engine...
    Loading image...
    Unknown error 160

Am I doing something wrong? I can't find any reference in documentation about error 160.

Information about OS: Arch Linux x86_64 with kernel 3.8.6-1 and gcc 4.8.0.

FineReader Engine was installed using self-extracting shell script called and activated over internet.

Please tell me how to resolve this problem.

Thank you in advance!

P.S. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question. I've sent an e-mail to our ABBYY license provider and I am still waiting for their response. Since I am under a time pressure, I would really like to find the required solution to my problem as soon as possible.

    Hello Nenad,

    We are sorry for the delay in response. We have consulted with the developers on this issue - they ask to send to the strace-log from the machine where the issue occurs. To generate the strace-log please use the following command:

    strace -f -o strace.log your_command

    your_command should be replaced with the command that was used to run the application which produced the error. Then send us this generated log "strace.log".

    The direct contacts of ABBYY FineReader Engine technical support services can be found here.
