SIMION 8.0 Issues/Bugs/Enhancements

Filter issues by query:
Issue I191 [resolved probably]
  2006-06-12
  Long file names (greater than 8+3=11 characters) may cause error messages.
  This is due to the following registry being set to 1 (default on WinXP).
  HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation
  If changing this back to 0, the system will need to be rebooted, and the
  files will need to be recreated (e.g. copy and rename back) so that they
  have short names.  Due to these complications, it is recommended that you
  not make this registry change but instead use short names.
  Example: rename test3d.pa to test3dlarge.pa and load.  open View, exit View,
    and attempt to reopen View.  Second reopen triggers error message about file
    name bad.
  Affects: 7.0 and above. Fixed in 7.0.4 and 8.0beta8.
