Details of error

(error code 2)
018 - ERROR IN WRITTING FILE - @VBM01

I got this error when my logic count reaches around 80 plus. Anyone knows what this error is all about? This error causes my logic Id to disappear in the events tab. However I can still access the logic from the logic editor.

Couldn't possibly be a bug in VIP could there? ;)

Hi,

I think this is because all of the VIP files have been created with a record size of only 250, when it was installed.

This file (vipbm01.pro) is the VIP equivalent file of FUNCTDEF.

If the total length of these fields exceed 250 Bytes, then you get this error. This file has alot of fields (around 500, if i've counted correctly.. but I could be wrong cause it was only a quick check), on it, so it can easily get over 250 bytes.

Try converting the VIP files to record size of 1530 (using isout, iscr & isin) , and this should correct the problem.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you backup you env. (bootstraps) before converting, just incase ;)

ALSO: Make sure that NO one is in the ProIV environment.

Then, this is how to convert the record size (on Unix):

isout vipbm01.out vipbm01.pro
rm vipbm01.pro
iscr -k8 -r1530 vipbm01.pro
isin vipbm01.out

If your in a windows env. then replace 'rm' with 'del' and put '32' on then end of the is* utils (ie isout32).

Maybe you should do this to all vip*.pro files, just to be sure that no others will get this problem.

HTHs,

Rob D.

This should be reported via support.

I think that you are using an early trial version of the
product which did have this issue or you have updated a trial version with the production version and retained the original bad record size.

There will be a major version release of VIP shortly that
includes bug fixes and new features and will be available from our web site. This is the same version that is to be
released with 5.5 production.

Neil,

I dont think that his version is an old Beta/Trial one.

The current ProIV release 5.0r109 on your partner site has the VIP files at 250 Record size.

Maybe you need to update the partner site.
