Known Problems and Workarounds
Defect: The display in visionCATS of the version of the scanner firmware is incorrect.
Reason: There is a conversion problem between hex and dec coding. 1.14.30 corresponds to 1.20.48.
Defect: After changing of Visualizer, a Visualizer cannot be executed in an analysis having already images.
Reason: Only one Visualizer can be used in an analysis.
Workaround: Redo the analysis.
Defect:After changing of camera for a Visualizer, already opened analysis with Visualizer step waiting for execution, or Visualizer Manual control or OQ may behave strangely (using old camera, bad image corrections...).
Workaround: Before changing of camera, close all analysis with next step as Visualizer and Visualizer views.
Defect: After changing of camera for a Visualizer, Visualizer in toolbox isn't marked as having a bad Diagnostic.
Workaround: Restart the client.
Defect: While using two visualizers on a single PC, one or both camera aren't detected, or the camera of one visualizer seems to be connected to the other.
Workaround: We strongly suggest to use only one Visualizer per Instrument Service.
Defect: No image appears in Data or in Comparison after installing for the first time visionCATS on the machine.
Workaround: Restart Windows.
Defect: Sequence table doesn't allow to drag and drop a multi-selection.
Workaround: Before clicking for drag and during the drag, hold SHIFT key for dragging a multi-selection.
Defect: Applications crashes after clicking on an image or opening a comparison.
Workaround: Update your graphic driver to the latest version.
Defect: After installation, no visionCATS is installed. Also, the SQLServer service may not want to start.
Workaround: Change the name of the user which installs the application, username should be different from machine and domain name.
Defect: Instruments are not responding correctly.
Workaround: Check if you have an Intel(R) Active Management Technology - SOL COM port on your machine, and disable the corresponding COM port in visionCATS/General Settings.
Defect: visionCATS display Out of memory with only around 1.2GB of 4GB memory used by visionCATS, on a 32bit system.
Workaround: increase the applications' memory space with "bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072" command, and restart Windows.
Defect: An error occur while importing a visionCATS 2.0 analysis with evaluation
Reason: The evaluation improvement of SP1 has changed some data type, migration is only done on system update, not on import
Workaround: export again the analysis from a visionCATS 2.0 SP1 system.
