Error description

  • RDi v9.5 comes up with a "Signon to the System" dialog box. The
    System, User ID, and Password fields are blank. Default User ID
    is not checked, Save password is checked. Also, the Checking
    license status box comes up and it shows "Progress Information
    (Not Responding)".
    
    Users also noticed their source code is corrupted when this
    problem occur.
    
    Steps to duplicate the problem:
    1. Open a DSPF member that contains a date type field with
    DATFMT(*JOB) in screen designer.
    2. Close RDi with the screen designer still open.
    3. Open RDi.
    
    Workaround:
    Save your password, or sign in before opening the member in
    Screen Designer
