*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT - PROM File generation: An incorrect fill value causes iMPACT to crash (Windows ME) or incorrectly proceed (Windows NT)


Keywords: iMPACT, PROM, fill, crash

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In the "Prepare PROM Files" pop-up window, users have the option to specify two HEX characters as the Memory Fill value. If only one HEX character is specified, iMPACT will crash (on Windows ME) or incorrectly allow the user to proceed (on Windows NT).


Two HEX characters are required (one byte) for the Memory Fill value. iMPACT does not currently check to ensure that the user has populated this field correctly.

This problem will be fixed in a future service pack (iMPACT will check for a valid fill value).
