VRf - Compatibility problem!

Question asked by VRFuser on Apr 25, 1999

Hi all,

I also investigated this strange model of my colleagues. This model is
not loadable by neither HP VEE 3.1 nor HP VEE 4.0 under HP-UX. However
when loading it into HP VEE 3.2 the serious error message "detailView
and detailViewInfo both exist." appeared when I want to edit a
UserObject. When viewing this VEE model in ASCII it seems that it is
neither 3.1 format nor 3.2 format. My question now is: Could it be that
the model was affected by opening, editing and saving it on a PC version
of HP VEE ? Does anyone have bad experiences with the compatibility of
VEE models between PC and HP-UX versions of VEE ??

Kind regards,
Arjen Bakker
