Release Notes : Prior Release Notes : Release Notes Version 4.3 : RiverWare for Windows 2000 and Windows XP
RiverWare for Windows 2000 and Windows XP
RiverWare is now available and supported for Windows 2000 and Windows XP (it will also run on NT but CADSWES is supporting Windows 2000 and XP). The user should be aware of the following differences that exist in RiverWare for Windows:
Differences in RiverWare for Windows
• Middle-mouse features such as QuickLink or rearranging the rows in the run analysis dialog are activated with the combination (pressed in this order): Alt + right mouse button + left mouse button. In Windows, the mouse configuration can also be changed so that middle mouse button actions are executed with the right mouse button (this would avoid the awkward sequence mentioned above).
• QuickLink can also be activated using the right-mouse button.
• The Windows DMI executable can be a DOS batch file or any other windows executable that can be run directly from a command shell.
Problems/Bugs in RiverWare for Windows
• The Locator View window often gets in a bad state when you resize the main workspace.
• It is possible that the objects may get shifted off the workspace if the workspace window is resized in certain ways. In order to make the objects visible again, you must save the model then reload it. Reloading the model will shift the model so that all objects are visible on the workspace.
Saving Model Files and Rulesets
• When saving model files or ruleset files that you intend to move between windows and unix systems, always save with the .gz extension. This saves the model/ruleset in a binary format that is the same on windows and unix.
New Plotting
• RiverWare now uses the same integrated plotting tool for both the Windows and Solaris platforms. The plotting tool was developed at CADSWES using the new Qt GUI package. Detailed documentation of the new plot tool is included in the online help (not in this file). CADSWES is open to any suggestions or questions that you may have concerning the new plotting tool.
