FMS FMSAXPECO04024 FMS V2.4 OpenVMS Alpha ECO Summary
TITLE: FMS FMSAXPECO04024 FMS V2.4 OpenVMS Alpha ECO Summary
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
       for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
       Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
       by typing RUN compressed_file.  The resultant file will
       be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
       can be used to install the ECO.

     ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit:  FMSAXPECO03024
                                           FMSECO01024 (CSCPAT_0435)
     ECO Kit Approximate Size:  1953 Blocks

     Kit Applies To:  DEC FMS V2.4 for OpenVMS AXP
                      OpenVMS Alpha V1.0 through V7.1

     System/Cluster Reboot Necessary:  No


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: 


  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.


  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.

INSTALLATION NOTES:                                                           
All DEC FMS applications must be stopped before the installation of           
this kit.  Install the FMS ECO kit from the SYSTEM account using the          
following commands:                                                           
                $ SET DEFAULT SYS$UPDATE                                      
                $ @VMSINSTAL FMSAXPECO03024 :  
The system/cluster does not need to be rebooted after this kit is             

The ECO kit checks to ensure that a valid license is installed before
proceeding.  If one is not found, the installation aborts.
