v4.0.8 Software Feedback

Its day one for this version, a release which fixes the high volume data issue that new-coach (2017+)owners were experiencing. Thanks in advance for your feedback!


Is it just me and the confusion of my installation or does the version appear as 4.0.7 in the program About Us info.

Will be awesome someday when the updates allow you to upgrade and carry over previous information without having to manually move and tweak and edit XMLs or at least could be installed over a previous version without wiping out the edit to parameters. Maybe V5 will take this into account?

re: Portability

Hello GS
The version error was reported earlier and was posted as Debug item #11, under Forum topic, top of the list "v4.0.8 Bug-List (Current)"

11. Version ID Version is still listed as 4.0.7 (under Help)

Portability was an opening-day goal for v4.x.x and so its a "Please Add" item under "v4.0.8 Software Add-list (current)"

5. (Layout) Export: Via menu item [Layout, Export to...]

My goal for the next build is based on the reality of ever-growing product lines vs. manpower and legacy equipment. The VMSpc is of the the longest lasting single products. However, within the priority system we must use in order to maintain momentum, the PC product doesn't see change unless there's a break and time is freed up, a new engineer who gets this as a 'welcome to SL' project or there's a serious problem--as was the case for v4.0.8.

This is mentioned elsewhere in the forum so I won't dwell on that here.

The deal I try to strike with the coder is, when fixing or adding something to the VMSpc software, take at least one item off the 'Add' list; they get to choose which. The low hanging fruit have all been picked. There's still a few not-too-tedious additions which would bring some welcome features--such as an Auto-Fill button on the TankMinder guage. However, many are going to be a challenge...and may never happen due to the time involved.

Maybe this next revision, when the Auto-Save gets turned off/ gets a menu option, we can somehow incorporate something like your xml resizing fixer. There was a reason explained to me at one point why we couldn't use percentages. This was during the dev process of 4.0.2.--but the reasoning escapes me.



Failure to load trip file

Installed 4.08 on two different PC's. Each reports the same failed to load trip file - defaulting values.

Trying changing the data file. No luck.


Got it to stop complaining

Got it to stop complaining about the trip file. Not sure how I did it. Possibly doing a fill tank then reset trip

Noticed that under help > About it shows version 4.07
