Hi everyone,

here's the final build of KiXtart 4.70. (...yes, I skipped a test-release as there were few changes ;-))

New functionality/enhancements:
1) Added @INUDF - macro that returns name of current User-defined function
2) Improved @CPU
3) Added "n" versions - KIX32n.EXE and WKIX32n.EXE are flagged such that Windows will run them from a local swapfile. Useful if the executables are run from the network - this may help prevent network errors (IN_PAGE errors, etc). Startup time of "n" versions may be slightly longer.

As always: keep scripting and let me know if you have any issues or suggestions!

Ruud

kix32n.exe...

First I've heard of this is now. Was there an example of when this exe fixed a problem for someone?

Good question: yes, not often perhaps, but there have been reports of INPAGE_ERROR/C0000006 when running executables direct from a network-share.
This is also mentioned in the troubleshooting section in the doc. Errors like this occur when network connectivity is lost while the process is still running.

Marking an executable as "SWAP run from network" instructs Windows to copy the entire .EXE to a local swapfile and run it from there.
This doesn't solve the underlying network connectivity issue(s), but it does ensure the executable can continue to run.

Of course, an alternative approach to this would be to just install KIX32.EXE on the clients and run it from there.
In short, the "n" versions are basically a convenience thing for the subset of orgs that run KiXtart from the network.

It looks like the updated documentation may still be missing a few things.
e.g. The SetOption option "NoNetwork" is listed in the release notes but not in the Word document.

I'm not sure if the following is a microsoft or kix error;
Having all the new updates from microsoft I saw my cmd-box changed from DarkBlue with White letters changed back to white on black. So I changed this back in the settings to darkblue with white. Now I have a kix script using a box on which I used black as being the shadow.
To my big surprise Color "N/N" gave no longer black but blue. So I changed the settings of the cmd-box back to white on black ran the script and to my surprise black was black again.
