QMF for Workstation Win32 API reverts to previous version of QMF for Windows
SymptomsIf an earlier version of QMF for Windows that is installed alongside QMF for Workstation Version 12 is opened, API instances automatically revert to QMF for Windows, even after Version 12 has been reopened.
CausesWhen QMF for Workstation Version 12 is installed, the application version number is updated in the system registry. When a preexisting version of QMF for Windows is opened, it automatically reverts the application's version number in the system registry. When Version 12 is opened, this automatic rename does not take place.
Resolving the problemAny time that the QMF for Windows application is opened, you must manually reset the version number in the system registry if you want API instances to point to QMF for Workstation Version 12.
User response: To reset the application version number in the system registry:
- Go to the following location in your workstation
"C:\Program Files\IBM\QMF Analytics for Multiplatforms\API
- Double-click the file named qmfwin.exe
Note: Win32 API uses active repository connections. If there is not an active repository connection, the system brings up a dialog box that lists all available connections where you must select the connection you want to use.
