Official DM2000.EXE version:
File date (dd.mm.yyyy):
2 001 408
Closing document in minibrowser from within embedded script crashes DM2000 application.
If you try to reset menubar from Customize toolbars dialog box it will disappear. However,
after DM2000 restart original menubar will be displayed normally. Another
similar problem: when you reset toolbar, it forces background alignment to the blNormal.
When you have docked any "special" (popup) window, and perform
some operation on the active data window by selecting main menu item using keyboard
(e.g. Alt-E, C to copy), docked window grabs input focus and selected
operation executed on this window instead of data window. When you select menu
items with mouse or use shortcuts (Ctrl-C), all works fine. Workaround
is very simple: just click Alt (not hold!), then select menu item by letter or arrows.
I hope that in future versions of Delphi this bug will be fixed.
It was determined that recent versions of dm2000.exe require oleaut32.dll version 2.4 or
later. As a rule, many applications (e.g. MSIE5) update this library supplied with original
Windows 98 system. You may download correct OLE libraries
from this website.
If there's several user profiles on your system, MetaBase provider should be manually
registered for additional user accounts (installator registers it only for one profile).
Although it is possible to install and run DM2000 under Windows 95
(Internet Explorer 5+ and HH 4.74+ required!), you should keep in mind that DM2000 was
not well tested with this system and you may encounter some troubles. I still nave not
properly tested DM2000 under NT4 and ME systems, but I hope that it will also work.
