Bug Fixes R2016

Bug Fixes R2016.7

  • (ID4123): IPZ files have sometimes not been compressed properly.
  • (ID4127): Data=>Data Cursor: The data displayed in the cursor dialog box can be copied to clipboard by a right click in the box. If the clipboard was already filled with some the data, the function failed.
  • (ID4130): If an IPZ files was modified and the file was closed without saving, the file time was updated.
  • (ID4131): Problems with write protected IPZ files: If a write protected IPZ file is opened, a copy of the file is created in the UniPlot autosave directory. This copy was not removed if the file was closed without saving it. The next time UniPlot was started the file was opened automatically.
  • (ID4132): File=>Export Data: The MDF4 export generated files did not comply with the MDF4 specification. UniPlot could import the files but other programs, for example ETAS MDA, would display an error message.

Bug Fixes R2016.6

  • (ID4110): Copy On Open: An error occured, if a write protected IPZ file was opened from a network drive with the option “Copy-On-Open” enabled. Saving the file failed without displaying an error message. The locally saved file was opened every time UniPlot was started. The file was only removed if the file was saved under a new name.
  • (ID4113): CAN: The dialog box did not save the message frame selection.
  • (ID4116): ASAM-ODS Browser (CORBA): The tree structure in the ODS browser only displayed the first 1,500 child elements for each node. This number has been raised to 10,000 elements and can be set to a different number as well.
  • (ID4117): COM-Interface: If a matrix was passed as a function parameter, for example in a VBA script, the rows and columns were mixed up in UniPlot.
  • (ID4118): Import of IFILE Data Files: The channels of the different time groups were sometimes saved in different dimensions. Now all channels are saved in the same time group.
  • (ID4120): IPZ-Backup files were not removed, if the option “Remove backup files” in the Option dialog box was enabled.
  • (ID4121): Import of MDF4 Files: The import filter did not evaluate the invalid bits. Now the invalid bits are used to set the missing values.

Bug Fixes R2016.5

  • (ID4097): Import of IFILE Data Files: The time channels were missing in IFiles created with a PEMS-System.
  • (ID4099): Formula Interpreter 1 - Introduction: If a formula contained a time channel and the NC file contained multiple time channels (e.g. an MDF file), the function did not select the correct time channel and the formula calculation could fail.
  • (ID4100): Import/Export of TDM Files: Invalid numbers were not marked as missing_values.
  • (ID4102): 3D Dataset: If all data points were located on the data hull, an error occured and the dataset could not be created.
  • (ID4103): The File List Window: An IPW/IPZ file was displayed in the File List with an incorrect name, if the file was opened from a network drive and the file name contained an @ character. If the file was clicked in the file list, the file was closed and the file name was removed from the list.
  • (ID4104): @f{legend_table}: The Record filter was not displayed in the legend table.
  • (ID4105): sum: The function failed, if the strings contained 0-characters.
  • (ID4107): Data=>Data Exchange (Page): The record filter could not be edited or a new datasource with a record filter could not be added, if the data file contained more than one dimension (e.g. MDF file).

Bug Fixes R2016.4

  • (ID4073): Open IPW/IPZ files with a double click in the Windows Explorer: Sometimes the command failed, if UniPlot was not already running. The fix in UniPlot R2016.3 did not always work. Please contact us if the function still causes problems.
  • (ID4084): NC_AddFiles: The values of string channels for the first data file were missing.
  • (ID4085): File=>Metafile/Bitmap-Export: The bitmap export could not be used. A file was missing in UniPlot R2016.x.
  • (ID4086): Edit=>Copy Page: If a document page was inserted into PowerPoint or other OLE supporting programs, the diagram grid was not displayed.
  • (ID4088): If a document page contained a dataset with 0 data points, diagrams and drawing objects could not be selected using the mouse.
  • (ID 4090): Import of IFILE Data Files: In some cases the time channel resolution was not created correctly. This problem occured, if the resolution for RZT and AZT elemenst was not 1. The heat release calculation failed, if the pressure channels were recorded with different resolutions.

Bug Fixes R2016.3

  • (ID4068): Drawing Objects: If a drawing object was moved with the help of the arrow keys, it sometimes jumped to an unexpected position.
  • (ID4073): Open IPW/IPZ files with a double click in the Windows Explorer: Sometimes the command failed, if UniPlot was not already running.
  • (ID4074): Import of MDF4 Files: The import failed, if a file contained channels with a bit size smaller than the normal data type size. Example: Channel with a size of 48 bits.
  • Some minor bugs have been fixed.

Bug Fixes R2016.2

  • (ID4061): On some computers with Windows 7 UniPlot R2016.1 could not be started. The following error message was displayed: The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll. The bug has been fixed.
  • (ID4065): UTX Data File Format: UTX Text files with BOM (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark) were not imported. In the NC file the header data elements (global attributes) were missing. The support for UTX text files with a BOM for the formats UTF-8, UTF-16 (BE) and UTF-16 (LE) has been added.
  • (ID4066): Import of CAN Files: Channels with Motorola byte order were not imported correctly. The values were incorrect.

Bug Fixes R2016.1

  • (ID3741): UniScript-Debugger: The F10 command (Step over Function)the debugger would skip break points.
  • (ID3993): UniScript-Debugger: If the path name of a Uniscript file contained a @ character, it was not possible to set a breakpoint, repectivly they were removed when the F4 key (Save/Execute) was pressed.
  • (ID4007): IsFileIPW returned the value 65535 for Excel-xls files (or other OLE compound files) instead of 0.
  • (ID4043): If UniPlot was never invoked with administrator rights, opening and closing of IPW/IPZ files failed, if UniPlot was started with temporary administrator rights.
  • (ID4044): ASAM-ODS Browser (CORBA): For variables with the data type DT_DATE the seconds were used as minutes.
  • (ID4046): IPW/IPZ Files: Saving IPW/IPZ files could cause a memory access violation if the document contained a huge number of datasets.
  • (ID4048): Data=>Data Exchange (Page): The data of threshold datasets were not exchanged.
  • (ID4049): The 7z interface function were incorrect, e.g. p7z_zip, if the file names contained spaces.
  • (ID4050): Import of IFILE Data Files: If channels were measured with different Crank Angle settings but with an identical number of data points, it was possible that a channel was assigned to the wrong Crank Angle group.
  • (ID4051): ncdump.exe: If string channels in the NC file contained newline characters, the dump file was in incorrect.
  • (ID4052): Data editor: String channels containing non-printable characters (e.g. newline characters) could not be edited correctly.
  • (ID5059): Import of MDF Files: If a MDF file contained more than 1000 channels, the import could be very slow. By using a hash table the access speed has been improved significantly.
