Niakwa On-Line News Brief
Vol. 10 No. 6 Community News & Information December 19, 2006
In This Issue:
* WINDOWS VISTA
* HOLIDAY SCHEDULE
Microsoft is scheduled to release their latest operating system in the beginning of January.
We have begun testing NPL on Vista. Preliminary testing has produced some problems that we need to address. The first and most significant problem is when NPL is installed on Vista using
NPLSecure, launching NPL produces DCOM error messages. This may be just a configuration issue or it may be more serious. We are analyzing the problem.
The second issue discovered is character box graphics do not display properly. Specifically the lower left corner of a character box displays a character rather than the lower left corner of a box. The
lower right corner of a character box is shifted slightly to the left and the vertical line does not line up with the line on the side of the box. True box graphics display properly.
Niakwa will issue an online new brief when NPL has been fully tested on Windows Vista
