PRODUCT:    DECforms for OpenVMS


OP/SYS:     OpenVMS Alpha

SOURCE:     Digital Equipment Corporation


     ECO Kit Name:  FORMSAECO01021
     ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit:  None
     ECO Kit Approximate Size:  570 Blocks
     Kit Applies To:   DECforms V2.1 for OpenVMS
                       OpenVMS Alpha V6.1 or higher
     System Reboot Necessary:  No


An ECO kit exists for DECforms V2.1 on OpenVMS Alpha V6.1 or higher. 
This kit addresses the following problems: 

Problems addressed in the FORMSAECO01021 Kit:

  o  Problem loading a form created using the Alpha DECforms V1.4(C/D)
     translator /NOMEMBER_ALIGNMENT switch.

     These old style form's records were treated as naturally aligned
     even though the /NOMEMBER_ALIGNMENT switch was specified when
     they were translated. 

  o  Form load problem causes a hang condition due to an infinite loop.

     When multiple extracted form objects are linked into an image and 
     they had been extracted using an older version of DECforms prior 
     to DECforms V2.1, a hang condition may occur.  If tracing was 
     enabled, the trace file would end with the message:

        "Converting an old style form object to latest format"

  o  "Session Not Found" errors and possible PEU call argument errors 
     resulting in a fatal exception.  

     These errors are a result of a form object conversion error where
     call argument alignment size calculations were performed
     incorrectly.  This problem typically occurs on OpenVMS VAX but
     could occur using VESTed images on OpenVMS Alpha.


The system/cluster does not need to be rebooted after this kit is
installed.  However, if ACMS is running on your system, you will have to
shut it down before installing this ECO.  After the installation is
complete, restart ACMS and restart the ACMS application so that the new
FORMS$CIOSHR image will be used.
