Serious problems with VS in VW 2008

Recommended Posts

Good thinking, Ionwman! I've both repaired permissions and checked them on folder basis.

However, I have - repeatedly - seen $INCLUDE scripts getting incorporated when duplicating a PIO, with all line-feeds and carriage-returns disappearing.


Does anyone under 40 know what a carriage return actually means?

I think you guys know this but I'll say it anyway for the benefit of any neophytes that might happen by:

Strange behaviour in PIO's that is mysteriously fixed by restart can be related to "vectorscript caching". In the industry series you have a menu command somewhere to turn this off and on. Fundamentals users like myself use something like:SetPref(407, NOT GetPref(407));

Turning it off forces compilation of the script on every run. With caching on you may not see the result of script changes on subsequent runs. Especially when using includes.

(I believe a carriage return happens when the cabbie returns to the stable.)
