AutoMate 6 : 6.0.7.0

Jan 2006

Adds new functions for generating random numbers (RndEx, RndInt and RndFloat) together with further enhancements to AutoMate's terminal actions.

In This Update

Enhancements

Task Service

  • invalid logon information when using a background user could cause a task to hang and prevent the Task Service from shutting down
  • invalid logon information when using a background user would not display proper error message to the user
  • modifying a dataset using an index modified the wrong dataset row
  • encrypted tasks would not run
  • tasks would intermittently cause a "Process ID can not be found" error, even though the task runs successfully

Task Builder

  • maximized state of the Task Builder was not retained

Task Administrator

  • moving a task to multiple machines using the Move To... dialog caused an error - encrypted tasks could not be moved or copied from one folder to another

Event Viewer

  • resizing a column caused an error

HTTP Download Action
HTTP Post Action

  • using a URL with a @ symbol that was not part of a username improperly truncated the URL

Excel Dataset to Cells Action

  • would skip the first row of the dataset in some instances

Connect Terminal Action

  • Connect Terminal ignored port parameter and would always connect to port 23 - CPU would max out when connected to a terminal

Wait Terminal Action

  • waiting for text would work inconsistently when regular expressions were used - would always return found text in all caps if case sensitive find is not used

Loop List Action

  • if using carriage returns as a delimiter, the action would not iterate properly if there was a blank line in the text to be looped

Run Action

  • would prevents MSAccess from closing if the step was set to wait until the application ends before continuing

Format Date/Time Action

  • returned the wrong day when using the dddd specifier

Decompress Action

  • uncompressing a gzip file with a tar inside caused the step to fail

Fixes

Extended Functions

  • added RndEx(), RndInt() and RndFloat() extended functions for generating random numbers

Event Log Viewer

  • column sorting is now retained
