    December 2008 NORMA Release

    A new release of NORMA (the December 2008 release) is now available for download.

    If you have downloaded since January 5, I have added one additional fix to this package and reposted it as the 'a' release to handle a reported crashing load issue that occurred when a file contained existing duplicate constraint names. My apologies for the extra download/install if you've already installed this release. As always, running 'Setup.bat' or 'SetupVista.bat' will install the new drop over any previous drop.

    Re: December 2008 NORMA Release

    Hi Matt,

    There appear to be two ZIP files available for 2008-12 CTP. Both have the same name but one is 7028354 bytes and the other is 6149300 bytes. What is the difference and which one should I use?

    Many thanks,

    Adam

    ************ EDIT  **************

    I've noticed that one of them is named '2005-2008' and the other is '2008-2008' - I have VS2008 so I need the latter.

    It was a bit difficult to spot and the names don't really make sense since the '2005-2008' install doesn't work on VS2008.  It would be better if they were simply named '2005' and '2008'.

    Anyway - minor point - keep up the great work with NORMA, your efforts are appreciated.

    Regards

    Adam

    We renamed these a drop or two ago, but apparently didn't go far enough. The host product name is now first (VS2008 or VS2005) with the version number last. In any case, the 2008 redundancy will disappear during 2009, but next year will unfortunately reintroduce the duplicate year name with VS2010 on the horizon. How about I make the first - an _ in the next release so that the last year more clearly goes with the month, not the VS version number? (NORMA_VS2008_2008-12CTP.zip, etc)

    Ah, now I understand, I didn't spot the convention at all! Embarrassed

    Yes, I think the first hyphen makes it confusing, replacing it with an underscore is a good idea.

    Thanks
