I just upgraded to 4.01 from version 3.21 and am having some problems
getting my program to run in compiler mode (3.0 Compatible mode works
fine). I'm hoping someone will be able to point me in the right
DESCRIPTION OF MY SYSTEM:
133 MHz Pentium w/ 32M RAM running Win95. ComputerBoards 16bit DAS
board, Oregon Micro Systems stepper motor controller board, and a
Kloehn pump that takes commands from the serial port.
The 2 boards are in the PC.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO:
Run parallel threads which collect data and move the pump.
I have a function/user object (tried both) that performs data
collection. At some delay time after data collection begins, a
function should move the pump (serial port) to introduce the sample
while the data collection keeps humming along.
In compiler mode, it seems to be an either/or proposition. I cannot
run these functions in parallel. It used to work in 3.21 and works in
3.0 compatible mode.
1. Is there a buglist (on the web or otherwise) for 4.01 yet?
2. Are there any patches available yet?
3. Has any one else been successful at getting user functions to
time-slice? On page A-6 of the Advanced User manual, it specifically
points out that they will. But, the online Help on threads says that
device events prevent this. Is there any way around this?
4. Separate issue: When toggling the "Show Execution" button, VEE takes
around a minute to give the mouse control again. Is this a bug and will it
be fixed? This did not happen in 3.21.
Please refer me to the reference materials if it is obvious that there is
something I haven't read in there that would help me.
