UNLOCK

All databases of current project will be updated.

Each project need to be updated separately (catalogue project and all working projects)

Also if you need to update PML-macroses, which contain cyrillic symbols . For updating you acn use such command (need to execute in Windows commandline ):

for /r d:\dropbox %f in (*.*) do C:\AVEVA\Plant\transc.exe 0 “%f” 65001 -s –b

After execution, the encording will be changed in all files, that store in that directory (d:\dropbox – folder, as an example where pdms is installed)

All configuring option-files of ISODRAFT need to be encoded into UTF-8.

If you need to enable the possibility of using special symbols in databases, that have already existed. Then need to perform reconfiguration with such code:

(for each database):

FROM DB DESIGN/MODEL
TO FILE /c:\DICT1 /c:\DICT2
RCFCOPY ALL
RECONFIG SESSIONS
FROM FILE /c:\DICT1 /c:\DICT2
TO DB DESIGN/MODEL
RECONFIG
