HP OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library 01 March 2008 AV-RWNLP-TE Welcome to this quarter's OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library Package. Products on eBusiness CD Media In Q2 we are planning to add the products delivered on the eBusiness CDs to the Alpha “Software Products Library”, to provide timely updates with the quarterly distributions. 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 problem.
