HP OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library
01 March 2008

Welcome to this quarter's OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library Package.  

Products on eBusiness CD Media

ASTAware Search Engine Problem with Microsoft® Windows® Vista
The ASTAware search engine, used with the Online Documentation Library (ODL), does not 
currently support Windows Vista for searches. This is only a problem for Windows Vista 
customers who choose to do a search instead of using the links provided on the ODL. 
In order to use the current version of the search software with Windows Vista, users 
must run the file "SDWinjava.bat". This file resides in the root directory of the Online 
Documentation Library disk and can be located with Windows Explorer. When SDWinjava.bat 
is executed a window is opened, and the search function will be enabled. The open window 
should not be closed until you have finished searching. 
We are hoping to receive a new version of the ASTAware search engine to correct this

Full-Kit Software Patches are included on the Software Products Library

Please be aware that some products will ship a "Full-Kit Software Patch" on the Software 
Products Library.  The “Full-Kit Software Patch” will be delivered either as a replacement

Details regarding the software patch version are available in each product's cover letter.  
The Full-Kit Software Patch should be handled as a maintenance release.

The Services Tools CD and associated web pages may contain new diagnosis software that is 
applicable to the system and should be reviewed for the most recent updates to the diagnosis tools.
