Three blog posts in three days? He’s on fire. Maybe that’s not as highbrow as Cameron Lackpour’s references; however, if you’re in your 30’s, you probably understand.
A couple of days ago, I posted the fix to five of the Calc Manager CDFs in 220.127.116.11.502. Well, as luck would have it, a new patch to Calc Manager 18.104.22.168 was released a few days ago on January 15. As one that frequents this blog, I’m sure you all went right out and made those changes to your essfunc.xml files and are wondering if that was necessary or if this release fixes those CDFs for you.
I downloaded and applied the patch to my laptop’s sandbox EPM system and found that all 55 of the @CalcMgr* functions from 22.214.171.124.502 persist in 126.96.36.199.503. Not only do the same CDFs persist, but so do all five errors on the CDF declarations. I compared the essfunc.xml files from the two patches and found only a few differences but nothing that would materially change the implementation of the CDFs between 188.8.131.52.502 and 184.108.40.206.503.
To sum it all up, if you have fixed your CDFs in 220.127.116.11.502 and are planning to apply 18.104.22.168.503 (patch number 19927906), then prepare to re-fix your CDF specifications in either EAS or the essfunc.xml file again. The great news is that if you have used some of the cool functionality in Calc Manager 22.214.171.124.502, you can still use it in 126.96.36.199.503.
**** EDIT 6/11/2015 **** Calculation Manager 188.8.131.52.505 has been released and fixes the issues with CDF registration.
