WinSPC version 9.0.5 has been released and is now available for download.
Customers with an active ESC (Extended Service Coverage) account are eligible to receive the new version.
FIXES IN RELEASE 9.0.5
Fixes for the following defect numbers are included in this release:
125: When uploading data collected offline, WinSPC now manages any termination of the connection to the main WinSPC database in such a way that the upload resumes and completes properly once the connection is restored.
1263: Translation of the Synchronization progress bar now occurs as expected. (This progress bar appears after checking the Can Work Offline check box and clicking OK on the Station Setup window’s Miscellaneous tab.)
1299: Collecting data offline now results in a local database that is the appropriate size.
1487: Adding a blank value to a list of assignable causes, corrective actions, or notes and then synchronizing an offline WinSPC database and main WinSPC database no longer occasionally duplicates values in the tables for assignable causes, corrective actions, or notes.
1492: Dropdown lists of tag values are now visible and function as expected when collecting offline data.
2064: Free format tag values can now be entered when collecting data offline (even if the tag is configured with a Response Type of Both and a List Update of None).
2795: Erroneous values in the WinSPC.ini file that prevent WinSPC from finding the database no longer interfere with WinSPC’s offline functionality.
2981: Uploading of values in the PREVTAGVALUE table now occurs as expected when synchronizing databases after offline data collection.
3096: The circumstances that occasionally caused an Access Violation error associated with the Tags prompt when loading a collection plan no longer cause this error.
3286: After using Task Manager to stop the synchronization of an offline database with a main database, WinSPC now resumes and completes the sync the next time WinSPC is run on the station with the offline database and establishes a connection to the main database.
3688: Report templates configured to group tag values now do so correctly.
3693: A Cannot change Visible in OnShow or OnHide error will no longer occasionally occur when clicking on a subgroup or prompting for notes in Data Collection.
3742: New user passwords can now be changed to blank when offline functionality is enabled.
3768: Users who get locked out when working in WinSPC offline are now able to get their account unlocked. The unlock procedure is performed by a qualified supervisor and consists of clicking the Unlock User button that appears in the Access Center when an offline user has been locked out and, in the Unlock User window that appears, supplying the name of the locked-out user and his or her own supervisor credentials. A qualified supervisor, in this case, is a user who has been assigned the Edit Users and User Groups permission and is hierarchically senior to the user group to which the locked-out user belongs. (The Admin user is a qualified supervisor to all other users.)
3792: When running a Simplified Chinese translation and editing tag information, the circumstances that occasionally caused a Format ‘%d’ invalid or incompatible with argument error no longer cause this error.
3847: Clicking Cancel on the Tags prompt for a collection plan that is configured to prompt for tags (or job tags) on collection plan load no longer occasionally loads the Collection Plan window when the user, instead, should be taken back to the window from which they attempted to load the collection plan.
3852: Users can now have WinSPC release 9.0.5 (or newer) installed and install earlier releases in the version 9 series.
3854: The typo “toautomatically” in the WinSPC Upgrade: Security Credentials Required window has been corrected to “to automatically”.
3862: The LotSize and Total OLE properties of the Data Collection object (used for attribute data collection) now work as intended.
3882: The Last Week and This Week data filters now work consistently.
3888: Changing the ID of a station in offline mode no longer interferes with proper synchronization when a connection to the main database is reestablished.
