PowerSCADA Expert 8.2 (PSE8.2)
A new PSE8.2 cumulative update release.
PowerSCADA Expert 8.2 Update 5 - Release Notes
Release Notification (Updated 25 April 2018)
This is a detailed listing of resolved issues and minor enhancements in this release.
You must have PowerSCADA 8.2 installed prior to installing this update. No previous updates are required.
Floating License Manager v2.1 addresses vulnerabilities in the Flexera FlexNet Publisher component detailed in CVE-2016-10395, CVE-2017-5571 and CVE-2016-2177. Uninstall the current version of the Floating License Manager, and then install version 2.1.
The Floating License Manager v2.1 installer is included with this hotfix release but is not a part of the hotfix installer. Unzip "Floating License Manager v2.1.zip" and run "setup.exe".
There is a known issue with the Floating License Manager v22.214.171.124 installer. When installing with a logged-in Windows User name containing a space, the install will not succeed. The workaround is to install the Floating License Manager with a user that does not include a space character in their name.
Bug Fixes and Enhancements
TFS 21482 - AlarmEvents with a state of normal returned in GetAlarmEvents response for EWS
GetAlarmEvents was changed to not return alarms in the normal state.
TFS 21483 - Incorrect timestamp information provided for AlarmEvents not in the Active state
Alarm timestamps are now updated to reflect the true timestamp of occurrence for all state changes (active, drop out, acknowledge).
TFS 21484 - Unable to filter AlarmEvents by Type using EWS
Alarms are now filtered based on type.
TFS 21485 - Unable to successfully acknowledge alarms using EWS
In some situations, EWS would not acknowledge alarms correctly. This behavior has been fixed.
TFS 21486 - Unable to filter alarms using the PriorityTo and PriorityFrom fields
EWS did not observe the priority field correctly. This has been addressed and the minimum allowable priority has been set to 1 (to exclude non-alarm objects in the PowerSCADA alarm database).
TFS 21557 - PowerSCADA projects - including the starter project, PLS_Include, and PLS_Example - need to be upgraded to support the new DBF schemas
PowerSCADA projects have been upgraded to the latest DBF schemas. If there are existing projects created from the starter project, set [CtEdit] Upgrade = 1 in the Citect.ini file using the Setup Editor, and then restart PowerSCADA Studio.
TFS 21564 - Alarm Proxy does not show the analog alarm states
Alarm Proxy now reports the analog alarm states (HIGH HIGH, HIGH, LOW, LOW LOW) instead of ON / OFF.
TFS 21566 - If a CSV file that does not exist is selected in the I/O Device Manager, the application throws a runtime exception
A message is displayed indicating that the file does not exist.
TFS 21569 - On large systems with 200k configured alarms, the GetAlarmDefinitions call in Alarm Proxy is slow and causes ENM to timeout
Performance issue in alarm proxy has been resolved.
TFS 21649 - When CoreServiceHost adds and removes devices, it may lose the original IDs
CoreServiceHost now keeps a device chronicle. When the device is removed and then later added, the ID will remain the same.
TFS 21913 - If the equipment name is changed in the system, but the I/O Device name is unchanged, CoreServiceHost will not refresh the equipment name
CoreServiceHost now properly updates the equipment on name change.
TFS 21935 - Logs that are too large for the Windows Event Log do not get logged properly
Large logs are now broken down into smaller log entries.
TFS 21970 - Profile Wizard and Automation does not support IPv6
