I recommend to convert in respective OS(French-German-ItalianSpanish ) for EU to avoid SQL convert error. Because native character (French-German) support in respective OS(French-German-Italian-Spanish ) for EU . (For example MiniSDD comments file-Folder name)

If you convert in English OS , it does not support EU native character (French-German) .

Please check now in your target PC as EU Language support.

Caution
After MiniSDD to SDD converting, Please set SDDJ Connect Parameter (Input same machine name by converted SDDJ programs )in AMNC side. After it , You can load them by All Machine sorting in AMNCV 5. This is only SDDJ connect parameter without default machine type parameter . We recommend that you should load converted programs by SDD Machine Name (Ex .HFP-1003 ) sorting in AMNC V5. After re-saving in AMNC V5 with correct machine type , you can load them by All Machine sorting in AMNCV 5. SDDJ Converted programs in Data manager. AMNC V5

You can use All machine correctly in AMNC V5 .


AMNC V5 SDDJ Connect Parameter

(Ex. In This case only HFP8025 by All Machine )

(Ex. In This case only HFP-8025on SDDJ)


For other machine name ,please select correct 44 machine name here without All Machine.

(MiniSDD Ver2.1)

Trouble Shooting

47

<Trouble shooting>
(1)CAN NOT start SDD-covert tool. If you can not start SDD-J covert tool , first please check miniSDD register information.Sometimes it will be changed by any reason. Also could you replace converter tool in Disk Top ? If you copy it in some folder places , it will have some error and give application error message sometimes.

48

<Trouble shooting>
(2)During converting into SDD-J , if you have SQL error into SDD-J , it means that some miniSDD data will not be linked or will be crashed by some reason. In this case , it does not matter. For example , after delete or move operation in MiniSDD some link will be crashed. In this case that I recommend it is better to re-restore miniSDD (SDD file extension ) in Program-AMADA-miniSDD -Maintenance Utility.

Please see New Support (8) Support Failed data 49 report (TXT file).You can see it by report file.

<Trouble shooting>
(3) Error case of MiniSDD Ver1.23. If you have application error in MiniSDD ver1.23 on converting , maybe some registry setting will be set . Maybe Ver2.1 and ver1.23 both setting will be remained in your PC. In this case please delete 2.1 key in registry editor .

50

<Trouble shooting>
(4) Error case of AP100 AMNC and BENDCAM BACK-UP IS OVER. If you convert again in same environments , this error may be come as error message. Causing is based on mixed environments on MiniSDD Ver1.2 and Ver2.1 in your PC.

In this case please delete 2.1 key in registry editor .
