AR# 2874: XACTstep wir2xnf 5.2.1 may fail with WIR files created by Powerview 6.1
XACTstep wir2xnf 5.2.1 may fail with WIR files created by Powerview 6.1
Keywords: Powerview 6.1, wir2xnf 5.2.1, line continuation character, +
General Description: Viewlogic has made a change in the WIR file format with Powerview 6.1. Long lines can be truncated into multiple lines by the use of a continuation character. When WIR2XNF 5.x attempts to translate this file, it complains that it does not understand the continuation character. The character is a "+".
In your viewdraw.ini file for this project, make sure the following line does not exist:
|5.0 WIR_CONT_CHAR 1
If this is removed, the WIR files will not have the continuation character and WIR2XNF will proceed as expected.
