Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 8.x Vista Hotfix 16147.3

Published date: 24 December 2018


1. When an event was acknowledged in the Vista Global Event Viewer, the cursor would change to an hourglass and stay like that until Vista is restarted.

2. The Vista scrolling graph display object would leak memory, so if a Vista diagram that includes this type of object was left open for an extended period of time, Vista would eventually crash.

3. The number of data log viewers in a single Vista diagram was limited to the hard-coded value of 60. This has been increased to 100.

4. The Vista menu item 'Alert on Comm Errors for Disabled Devices' did not work as expected. Even if this option was unchecked, you would still see a popup warning dialog if a diagram with objects linked to a disabled device is opened.
