Web sync for Revolve won't parse stream files, what's changed?
The new Web Sync for Revolve 7.0 is not parsing the stream files in the application - what's changed from the GA release to the current release?
This machine that parses the stream files will need the .NET framework version 2 - version 1.0 or 1.1 will not work. The job stream support was rewritten in C# to remove the requirement for Java on the customer's machine. The product's parser got around this by distributing Excelsior Jet as part of Revolve 7.0, but it is quite large and supported by a small company. The thinking is that it is better to depend on .NET, which is a component of Microsoft operating environment than on a third-party product. The correct version is included with Vista and is available for all MS operating systems since Windows 2000, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en.
Bear in mind that this could be a different problem. A quicker and easier test to determine if the .NET framework is on the build machine is as follows:
1. Open a command window (DOS prompt).
2. Change to the Revolve installation bin directory. (cd "\Program Files\Micro Focus\Revolve\bin" or something similar).
3. Type "twsbridge" and hit enter.
If the correct .NET framework version is installed it will show a "Usage: " message with the command line parameters. Otherwise, a message indicating that the correct .NET version is not installed.
This is only required on the BUILD machine, not on the user's machines.
