ECO KIT SUMMARY:
An ECO kit exists for DEC FMS V2.4 for OpenVMS AXP on OpenVMS Alpha V1.0
through V7.1. This kit addresses the following problems:
PROBLEMS ADRESSED IN FMSAXPECO04024:
o A call to FDV$$DWKSP sometimes corrupts the list of remaining
workspaces. This has now been corrected.
o The FMS editor would not alternate between 80 and 132 column width.
This ECO also incorporates all of the fixes in previous ECO releases that
relate to the FDVSHR.EXE and FMSFED.EXE images.
PROBLEMS ADRESSED IN FMSAXPECO03024:
o When loading a form whose field index is greater than 255 into the
FMS editor an ACCVIO occurred.
This ECO also incorporates all of the fixes in previous ECO releases. Below
is a brief description of each of them:
Problems Addressed by FMSECO02024:
o On an OpenVMS Alpha SMP (Symmetric Multiprocessing) machine,
an ACCVIO sometimes occurs during various FMS calls that
perform input or output to the terminal. This includes the
FDV$GET-type and FDV$PUT-type calls as well as calls that set
terminal characteristics such as FDV$SPADA.
This problem is corrected in the FDVSHR.EXE image
included in this ECO.
Problems Addressed by FMSECO01024:
o If there are more than 75 fields in a form, the LINK-W-ILLRECTYP
error would appear when linking the form.
o On an OpenVMS AXP SMP (Symmetric Multiprocessing) machine,
after editing a form a number of times, an ACCVIO would occur
upon exiting the editing session.

this kit. Install the FMS ECO kit from the SYSTEM account using the
