Foundation F1.3, Logic Simulator: Simulator will hang if status line has been deselected

Description

Keywords: Simulator, hang, status, F1.3, freeze

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

The Foundation Logic Simulator used to load the
netlist properly, however it now hangs with a grey
background showing. Only the Netlist Loading window
and Menu selections appear. Clicking on "Cancel" has
no affect either.

Solution

This occurs if either intentionally or inadvertently,
the status line was deselected from the Logic Simulator
Menu:

View -> Status Line


The workaround is the following:

1) Ctrl-Alt-Delete to bring up the Windows NT Security

Click on Task Manager
Select the Logic Simulator and click on End Task

2) Go to the Foundation Project Manager

File -> Configuration -> View Ini File (Susie.ini)
Search -> Find -> enter in "status"

3) In the [Simulator] section, you should find the following:

Status Bar=Off

4) Manually edit this to read:

Status Bar=On

5) Save -> Exit -> OK

The Logic Simulator should now load properly when invoked.


*NOTE: This issue has been resolved in Foundation F1.4
