This document contains the NI TestStand ATML Toolkit 2018 known issues that were discovered before and since the release of the NI TestStand ATML Toolkit 2017. Not every issue known to NI will appear on this list; it is intended to only show the severe and common issues.
There are two versions of the known issues list available:
The translator might incorrectly create a backup code module when incrementally updating a LabVIEW code module for a TD file that contains an array element
If you configure the translator to create LabVIEW code modules, translate a TD file that contains an array TestResult element, and then perform an incremental update on the previously translated sequence file, the translator incorrectly creates a backup of any code modules that contain array parameters even though the TD file has not changed.
TestStand prompts to save ATMLTDTypes.ini and ATMLTD_IEEE1641_Types.ini when closing using the ATML Toolkit for the first time
This is expected behavior. TMLTDTypes.ini and ATMLTD_IEEE1641_Types.ini will be updated for the appropriate TestStand version that was opened.
File paths to examples are incorrect in the help
In the ATML toolkit help, paths to the examples for "Computer 1.0.xml" and "Computer 1.0 - update.xml" are referenced as \Components\Translators\ATMLTDTranslator\Examples\Translator\Computer.xml and similarly for "Computer 1.0 - update.xml". The correct path is \Components\Translators\ATMLTDTranslator\Examples\Translator\Test Description 1.0\Computer 1.0.xml and similarly for "Computer 1.0 - update.xml."
Workaround: Navigate to \Components\Translators\ATMLTDTranslator\Examples\Translator\Test Description 1.0\ for the ATML TD 1.0 examples.
Unhandled Exception dialog appears if a file path with 260 characters or more is entered for the "Fixed File path" setting in the Test Description Translator Configuration Dialog
If a file path greater than 260 characters is entered into the "Specify Fixed File Path" option, an unhandled exception dialog will appear. The error will indicate that the file path is longer than 260 characters and that the directory path must be shorter than 248 characters. Choose "continue" to proceed forward.
Workaround: Make file path shorter than 260 characters.
