For updating project to version 12.1 it is required to do the following.
Open admin module of your project with Pdms 12.1.
In commandline execute command ‘Q UPGRADE STATUS’, to determine which databases need to be updated. The result will be represent in such way:
DBUPGRADE PROJECT TO LATEST
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
FROM FILE /c:\DICT1 /c:\DICT2
TO DB DESIGN/MODEL
