I just upgraded from BPVA 1.1 Build 20060728 to Build 20060802. The new version upgraded my project with little fuss, but the first time I tried to print using ‘File > Print…’ the print layout pane came up, I formatted my output, and then when I clicked the “Print” button, the entire panel turned green and the program froze. When I killed BPVA and restarted it, my project opened again just fine, but when I tried to use ‘File > Print…’ the pane no longer popped up, my screen turned grey, and BPVA froze.
Just for the fun of it, I reinstalled BPVA 1.1 Build 20060728 and noted that the ‘File > Print…’ worked just fine - even with the other BPVA version running on my pc. There must be some difference between the two that is causing this problem. Could it be a Java issue?
It seems like the newer version is incorrectly configured or has a different configuration than the older version. I was able to salvage my work by exporting it as an XML file and then importing it to the older version of BPVA. The old version wouldn’t otherwise let me import my project because it had been ‘upgraded’ by the new version.
This is not a disaster because I was able to salvage my model; I just wanted to bring this to your attention and also mention that I won’t be upgrading any time soon until I see this problem was addressed.
