Known Problems and Workarounds

Defect: winCATS import will remove any DigiStore, Reportstar or spectrum steps, without any error messages
Reason: DigiStore and Reportstar aren't supported by visionCATS, and version 2.0 also doesn't have spectrum support
Workaround: For documentation steps, add a Visualizer, for methods with spectrum, import them in visionCATS 2.1

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 view

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 using 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 don'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 install the application, username should be different from machine and domain name

Defect: Instrument aren't 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 32bits 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

Defect: visionCATS fails in Scanner/Scanner3 Diagnostics if the Positioning-Test is started  in the same session. 
Reason: Scanner data of the new test cannot be stored for later processing. This does not invalidate the test results of the previous run.
Workaround: Close the current Scanner Instrument Tab and reopen it. Attention: just switching between the Tabs inside the Instrument Tab will not prevent from the failure. You need to close the Instrument Tab.
