A new major version of Pivotware just released. See here for the latest additions.
Database Archive Management
Users can now define that CVI Fusion should access multiple databases upon starting up. One "live" database is used for project storage and is the default database searched during reporting however users can now add additional "archive" databases. In reporting menus, users can choose to query these configured archive databases in order to search older data without altering the "live" database store their projects/live information.
Performance when scrapping cycles
In previous versions, after a cycle was scrapped using the "Scrap Cycle" button on Infinity Client HMI, the "Scrap" status was set for each step following this action locally and within the centralised database (if being used). This meant that if a process had 100 steps and a cycle was scrapped at step 10 then we had certain tasks to complete for 90 steps before the next cycle would start.
In version 7.8, we record the "Scrap" status only for the step where the action "Scrap Cycle" was carried out. This saves processing time, improves local/centralised disk space usage and is reduce the number of lines for users to read through in reports (non-value added information).
[CVI Fusion] Deployment issue in case the field containing the picture name in Lookup is empty
When image values were defined using lookups, if a value was found to be empty then then CVI Fusion was raising errors unnecessarily.
[Infinity Client] Torque result format issue with Action TCP/IP step
When Infinity Client was sending the torque value to a TCP/IP asset using the Action TCP/IP step, it truncated the value. The Decimal Places value found in "Process Manager>Process Configuration>Display Option" is now applied torque values sent by Action TCP/IP steps.
[#1220] [CVI Fusion] Reporting Views removing double-spaces
Due to the default behavior of HTML, reports in CVI Fusion could aggregate spaces. Thus, if the frame received during an Action TCP/IP step was containing several spaces, then the report was showing only one.
[CVI Fusion] Number of validators keeps increasing each deployment
When hotspots and images were defined using a lookup, CVI Fusion could detect error about ‘HotSpots and Screen Background Media state are different (respectively Lookable and Value). Some problems might occur in this situation”. In addition, the number of such error could increase every time a deployment was made.
[#1282] Multiple FATAL errors when importing .xlsx into a Lookup project
CVI Fusion could raise multiple FATAL errors when loading a xlsx file as a Lookup if the column used to define the image path contained forbidden characters. The Fatal error has been replaced with an error message that shows when is data that can't be treated.
[CVI Fusion] The Project version number counts up automatically when entering the reporting menu
With some projects, CVI Fusion could increase the version number every time the reporting menu was opened.
[#1337] [Infinity Client] Unexplained 10 second delay between StepProcessLauncherService and StepProcessRunnerService
Infinity is slow to execute after a few minutes. This issue is triggered with “Action TCP/IP” steps which are aborted (skipped, scrapped or step timeout).
