    Description of the Issues

    New Updates

    1. When populating a list that contains a large number of folders, the entire list was not visible.


    Cumulative Updates

    1. Changes in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 resulted in significant Vault performance issues. This update resolves the performance issues and allows
      the installation of SQL Server 2008 SP2 and Cumulative Update 6.
      1. NOTE: The installation of Cumulative Update 6 for SQL Server 2008 SP2 is strongly recommended.
    2. When performing an Item Update on an AutoCAD Electrical project Item, the BOM quantities may all change to the value 1.
    3. Performing a purge operation in some instances resulted in a loss of file dependencies.
    4. When selecting a different copy design folder, the error “the given key was not present in the dictionary” is thrown and the user cannot continue.
    5. When assigning an item, with children that have had their item number replaced with pre-existing item numbers, the operation would
      fail with the message, "Operation cannot be performed on an old version of the file that is associated with the item".
    6. Performing a Purge in ADMS was incorrectly performing an unconditional purge resulting in unintended loss of relationships.
    7. When performing a Vault Explorer Pack and Go using the related documents option, some DWF attachments for the related documents are not included.
    8. Importing items using import wizard would fail when changing a category to a custom category.
    9. Performing an Item Update incorrectly creates a new item.
    10. Improvement for large BOM item export to DWF.
    11. Multiple item update operations were resulting in improper updates to items.
    12. When assigning items for DWGs containing blocks and part references, file property mapping would not map properly to item numbers.
    13. During assign item the detail ID could become lost for BOM entities.
    14. When performing a quantity override on a decimal value in an Inventor BOM, the value entered resulted in a multiplication of the quantity.
    15. Incorrect BOM quantity when the QTY is set to Static with units in Inventor.
    16. For some deployments, deleting a DWF file may be slow. This update provides a performance enhancement for DWF file delete operations.
    17. New migration issues have been resolved for error messages containing the following;
      1. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.ContentSourcePropertyDef'
      2. Error converting data type nvarchar to float.
