This task provides the following improvements/fixes for the WinCE side of the control:
Fixes below do not require any Mill or Lathe control software change.
- When DHCP is turned off, the control can still retrieve a MAC address by using a file located on the hidden partition of the hard drive. Conversely, whenever the adapter returns a valid MAC address this information is saved back the file. A valid MAC address should be available at the time the machine leaves the factory. The file is located at LOGS\MAC_ADDR.TXT
- There was a problem when searching for single letter characters such as Gin FNC edit. The search would place the cursor on the next item shown being searched for. This has been corrected.
- Attempting to save a file with an invalid filename could cause the control to lockup depending on the particular filename (ie. A filename of ‘\’ locks up the control). A function has been added to check for invalid characters within the filename.
- When searching for a token that contained a numeric value followed by a decimal point (e.g. ‘F100.’), the search failed to find the token. This has been corrected.
- An improvement was made to increase the amount of USB keys that will mount to the control.
Fixes below work in conjunction with Mill 18.11A or Lathe 11.08A.
- HTML help search has quicker response.
- In the past, if the command input line was too long during a replace all function, the editor would display an error (or blue screen). This has been corrected.
- There was a fix to the replace all function that may lock up the control. This has been corrected.
- There was a problem with selecting and moving blocks of text within an FNC edit. The text would be moved to an incorrect location if attempting to move the text to a point after the selected text. This has been corrected.
- An enhancement was made to alert the operator if a USB device fails to mount after a period of time.
- The FNC editor now prevents a user from changing O-codes. Any attempt to change an O-code will result in a message that states "Guarded code". Any attempt to replace any other token with an O-code will result in a message that states "BAD CODE".
- There was a problem when removing all the line numbers from an FNC edit program that stopped all FNC editing capabilities. This has been corrected.
