Enhancements [up]


  1. Reference: General
    VIP4 MISC 0273

    VIP for Dictionary-IV®, TbredComm™, TS ReportServer™, and Gateway for Windows™ now support Vista and 2008 Server. Please note that the VIP GUI Screen Editor, Toolbar Maintenance, and TS ChartServer are not supported on the Vista and 2008 Server platforms.

VIP for Dictionary-IV

  1. Reference: General
    VIP4 MISC 0274

    A new VIP® executable TSSetupEnv.exe can be run at any time to clear the TSI\ObjectCache folders or recreate the TSI\ObjectCache folders from a specified folder on the client.
    TSSetupEnv.exe -wash -load <load-directory-name>
    -wash : When the -wash argument is supplied, TSSetupEnv.exe will read Tbred.ini to determine the current location of TSI\ObjectCache. It will clear the contents of:
    ObjectCache\Viewsp with the exception of default.tpl.

    -load : When the -load argument is supplied TSSetupEnv.exe will load the supplied files into the \TSI\ObjectCache folders. The <load-directory-name> is optional. If not supplied TSSetupEnv.exe will default to C:\Program Files\Tsi\LoadEnv as the source for the load environment. The directory structure of the load environment must mirror the entire directory structure of TSI\ObjectCache.

    For example:


  1. Reference: TbredComm
    VIP4 TBC 0210

    A log file is now created when there is a connection failure.
  2. Reference: TbredComm
    VIP4 TBC 0209

    In previous versions an invalid password would result in a "cannot connect" message. This has been changed to an "invalid password" message.
  3. Reference: Autologons
    The autologon description is now displayed in the TbredComm title bar to help identify a TbredComm window and task.
