MULTIPLE CD RELEASE No 40302-1 Intel NT FEB 2000
Since the February 2000 CDs, have gone to press we have found an error with the
default installation of PDMS Professional 11.2.BP.4 BONUS PACK release No 50804-1.
When Installing Release No 50804-1 PDMS Professional 11.2BP.4 BONUS PACK
over PDMS Professional 11.2.4 (release No 50797-1) into the default PDMS11.2 directory,
files in the Bonus Pack do NOT overwrite the files of the same name installed
in PDMS11.2 directory and there is no indication that this has happened.
The only files that are installed are the files that are not present in 11.2.4,
thus giving the misleading impression that the installation has been successful.
For explanantion of problem and a workaround read the following link link errata07032000.pdf This file will be included in the Customer shipment of the CD-R.

Limbospec problem in PDMS 11.2.
Warning: Limbospec overwrites after 8191 members in PDMS 11.2


Download the warn20101999.txt file which contains the following message.

Support Managers' Bulletin - Limbospec problem in 11.2
Warning: Limbospec overwrites after 8191 members in PDMS 11.2
Fix on February 2000 CDs as SPECON 11.2.4a

We have received PURs from two German customers which 
report a problem with LIMBOSPEC in SPECON. 
 
The problem became rather confused because the Q MEM 
command only outputs a maximum of 500 members.  
So this bulletin reminds you of this feature and 
warns you of the problem with LIMBOSPEC - 
and when this problem will be fixed.

Warning:
PDMS returns maximum 500 members with the command QUERY MEMBERS
(this is deliberate to prevent the output of )
(a very long list with very large members lists)
(this is not a fault, but it can be confusing )
(if the user is not aware of it)

Information:
To query the number of members:
QUERY MEMBERS COUNT

Fault in 11.2, up to and including 11.2.4:
1.  How LIMBOSPEC is supposed to work:

The command REMOVE /specname removes the spec from the 
current owner and copies it into /*LIMBOSPEC_1.
When /*LIMBOSPEC_1 is full, the process starts 
again with /*LIMBOSPEC_2 (and so on)
The maximum number of members in a LIMBOSPEC is 8191

2.  The fault:

When /*LIMBOSPEC_1 is full it does NOT create /*LIMBOSPEC_2
Instead, it deletes the contents of /*LIMBOSPEC_1 and start to 
fill /*LIMBOSPEC_1 again from the first member
It also seems to lose the 8192nd member

3.  The solution:
(a) Users must be careful not to exceed 8191 members 
    in /*LIMBOSPEC_1 (Check with Q MEM COUNT)
(b) We will fix the problem in SPECON 11.2.4a.  
    This will be released (on all platforms) on 
    the February 2000 CDs, at the same time as PDMS 11.2.4.  
    That is, PDMS 11.2.4 will include SPECON 11.2.4a   

The February CDs will be shipped during February 
to reach customers by the end of February.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PDMS 10.5.4 USERS on HARDWARE NT.

Download the warn1809.txt file which contains the following message.

Subject:        PDMS 10.5.4 on hardware NT

PLEASE NOTE : ...
THIS AMENDMENT TO THE FILE ONLY HAS TO BE DONE IF THE
PDMS USER DOES NOT HAVE AN ADVANCED ROUTER LICENCE.

A problem has been found in the latest PDMS NT release 
which has just been sent out to all current NT customers.

The AUG NT CD release No. is 40073, 
The Products release No. is 50390 (PDMS 10.5.4).

During the loading of the macros in PDMS DESIGN, 
it checks to see if a PIPEROUTER license exists or not.
During the macro checking process it fails at that point. 
The user will receive an error "no such feature exists" 
and be returned to the operating system, 
i.e. stopping them entering DESIGN.

The workaround for this is to locate and edit the file 
...\pdms10.5\DES\ADMIN\macload.
Locate the word ROUTER and comment out the lines as shown below :-

...
$* Check to see if Router DSO is available
$*  ROUTER
$*  handle any
    var !!CDROUTEREXISTS false
$*  elsehandle none
$*    exit
$*    var !!CDROUTEREXISTS true
$*  endhandle
...

NOTE: leave the var !!CDROUTEREXISTS false line uncommented.
