Pinned topic How to open and modify inc file?

‏2019-07-09T07:21:39Z | dxl;doors;inc;edit;

Hello DXL experts,

I'm using DXL with DOORS9.6 to do some export activities.

I need to modify some inc file, like ole.inc parastyl.inc, but after i loaded the file to notepad++, there just some garbage code displayed.

I had gone through forum for days, seems the inc files are encrypted.

Any idea to decrypt those inc files? should i reinstall DOORS to other drivers instead of C:?

    Hello Julia,

    see https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=656911aa-ae35-4e26-b1ab-ca7eefb18d2dhttps://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=9033c993-0c75-42af-ae42-04b3762dfacc#2bc70bde-aa6e-49e5-9b19-31424a30954a. Perhaps you can ask IBM to decrypt the file for you.

     

    But depending on what you intend to change in the .inc files, perhaps this hooking mechanism https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=cfcb1bca-0006-4f8a-a52c-3858d9505d47#dc83db91-0e5c-49b6-8bde-2779d803c1ae might help you.

    Hello Mike,

    First of all, thanks for your quick answer.

    Hi Julia,

    I had no problem opening ole.inc or parastyl.inc with Notepad++.  I am using DOORs v9.202.

    I think you are looking at some other file, not inc file, not ole.inc or parastly.inc. The inc file you are looking at may be encoded.

    ah, yes, that might be. I think I remember that when IBM switched to the new encrytion algorithm in 9.3, they took this opportunity to encrypt more files than in earlier versions.

    So, Julia, you might be able to download an older version of DOORS and get these files unencrypted. But chances are high that the content of the files changed in the meantime.
