Diablo Analytical has released Version 126.96.36.199 of the EZReporter Software.
This is a minor update with the following enhancements and fixes:
[-] = Bug fix or change in behavior
[+] = Enhancement
[ALL] = Applies to all modules
[NGA] = Natural Gas Analysis/Liquids Modules
[RDB] = Results Database Module
[MOD] = Modbus Module
[+] [NGA] When transferring component physical constants from the Standard Components table to the current configuration, all ‘alias’ components for a particular standard component that are found in the component table are updated. Previously, only the first component found was updated. This allows components using the same set of physical constants to be updated automatically (for example, n-Hexane and Hexanes).
[+] [ALL] Re-enabled water calculations when extended fraction calculations are enabled if the raw/un-normalized amount units reported by the GC are Mole%. If the raw amount units in the NGA Settings are set to Vol% or Wt%, then Water Calculations will be disabled and can’t be enabled until the units are switched to Mole%. Similarly, if you have enabled water calculations with Mole% raw units, you will not be able to change the raw amount units to Vol% or Wt% until you disable water calculations. Note that the water calculations are not calculated and reported for all of the extended fraction results – only those already reported for NGA reports.
Significant Fixes and Other Changes:
[-] [ALL] Addressed a potential issue with obfuscation settings that may cause the software update check to fail. This issue affected versions 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. If you are running either of those versions, you may have to upgrade manually by downloading the installer from our web site.
[-] [ALL] INFICON Fusion Connector: fixed an issue with the “Open and process Fusion JSON data file” function when selecting multiple data files, only the first file would be processed multiple times.
[-] [ALL] Include the field ID and caption in the error message displayed when a non-numeric value is entered into a numeric custom sample information field in the manual data entry window.
[-] [ALL] Sample Results and Sample Processing panel splitter distances that are set during start up have additional exception handling and debug logging information to address potential startup exceptions.
[-] [ALL] Addressed an issue where additional instruments defined while in trial mode would still be active in the background even though a smaller number of instruments were licensed and activated. However, those additional unlicensed instruments are not displayed in the instruments table so they can’t be edited or deleted.
A complete list of fixes and enhancements is provided in the release notes.
.NET Framework 4.7.2 Runtime is Required
This version of EZReporter 4.0 requires the Microsoft .NET 4.7.2 Framework runtime to be installed. If the computer has an Internet connection, then the installer will automatically download the runtime if it is needed. If the computer is not connected to the Internet, then you will need to download the runtime file from our web site and copy it to the same folder as the installer before starting the installation. The runtime file is 526 MB in size.
Note: if you are running a relatively recent version of Windows 10 (April 2018 Update – Version 1803 or later) or any version of Windows 11, then your system already has the runtime installed. In addition, another program may have already installed the runtime. So you only need to download the runtime if it isn’t already installed on your computer.
Installing this Release
If you are running version 220.127.116.11 or later, you can download and install the correct version of the software using the “Check for Updates” option of the “Help” menu.
Otherwise, simply download and run the installation program from the download page.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you download the installer that includes support for the chromatography data system you are using.
NOTE: The “web” version of the installer can be used to upgrade an existing installation even if the computer doesn’t have Internet access.
Your current version of EZReporter will be uninstalled and the new version installed automatically. Your license status will be preserved.
Software Support/Maintenance Subscription
This is a free upgrade if your software support subscription has not expired. You can view the status of software support in the License Status window (click “Help > License Status”). If software support has expired then you will need to renew your support subscription before upgrading to this version. Contact Diablo Analytical for information on renewing software support.
