Converting Projects

Top  Previous  Next

When opening a project that is configured for a different analyzer than the one physically connected to the computer, the software will offer to convert it for you rather than having to start a project from scratch that matches your current one. If no conversion is needed simply select No to dismiss the prompt.

You can also manually activate the conversion at any time If you want to use the same project configuration with a different model of analyzer or a different analyzer mode. To manually start the conversion select the "Convert Project" option from

Menu-> Project->.


We suggest saving the project with a new name before converting if you want to preserve the capture history. The history files are not converted and will be deleted for the project being converted. After selecting YES or manually starting a conversion, a prompt will remind you of the History deletion and request permission to proceed. Select No if you want to save the project with a new name, otherwise select yes to proceed.

After selecting YES, the Analyzer selection window will open.






Analyzer Models and OS Detection Count

This area lists all models of DigiView that are compatible with this version of Software. The software automatically selects the attached device  when this window first opens. Next to each model's name is the enumerated count as detected by the Operating System (OS). The count will refresh automatically if the number of attached devices changes while this dialog is open.


Note: Hardware does not have to be present. You can convert the project to any model and mode.


Sample Mode

This area will change to the offer any modes available to the analyzer model selected on the left. As you choose a mode, its details will display

in the Analyzer Specifications area.


Refresh OS Detection

If you do not see a detection count next to the model of an attached device, try pressing the Refresh OS Detection button. If the count is still missing, then the Operating System is having difficulty identifying the analyzer and has not enumerated it on the USB bus. You may need to use a different USB port or verify that you are using a high bandwidth USB cable or the one supplied with the analyzer.



You can still choose to stop the conversion at this point by pressing the Cancel button. The window will close and no action will be taken to convert the project.



Proceed with the conversion as configured.



NOTE: If you convert a project to an Analyzer or mode that has fewer channels than its Signal Definitions are configured to use or the definitions use a higher channel number than available, many configuration items will be incomplete or invalid. The software will disable invalid Signal definitions, Search definitions and all other uses of an invalid Signal definition. Visual indicators will be present after the conversion if any item is disabled during conversion.
