SPSPlusWinNews in Vers. 5Overview


This document deals with the new functions available from Version 5.0.0 onwards. These functions cannot be used with previous versions of SPSPlusWIN. This means that there is no guarantee of downward compatibility.


SPSPlusWIN creates a new database (file extension *.spw5). If you have created a project with an older software version, a backup copy of the old database is then stored in a subdirectory of the project called "(Backup_Version) Projectname.Zip".


If you transfer a project with SPSPlusWIN 5, the following objects in the device cannot be transferred :


- alarm message histories

- recipes (must be recreated after the transfer)

- password lists (must be re-transferred)


Please note the following restrictions


The print protocols currently do not support Unicode fonts.

SPSPlusWIN 5 projects cannot be used together with the OPCom FDA server.


Please save the database and do not edit the project with older SPSPlusWIN versions once it has been opened.
