Should be ok. Since you're not a headhunter ;-)

Under 64-bit operating systems, the SSJavaCOM.dll file will need to be copied into C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

In a bit of confusing Microsoft logic under 64-bit versions of Windows, the "System32" directory is for 64-bit applications, and "SysWOW64" is for 32-bit applications.

Thank you, Aaron. I think this is the answer. To set a PATH was the wrong way. Because I am running a 64-bit OS, the dll would be exceuted as 64 bit. That's why it HAS TO be put in SysWOW64 to be executed as 32-bit.
I won't post the message until I know it is OK to do so. Don't want to misuse the forum.
Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Access EA from Outside - from Excel
« Last post by Viking on August 21, 2017, 11:20:35 pm »
Hello, I will get crazy (maybe it is already to late). Because I did not get the Eclipse / Java example to run, I tried Geert's Excel example. But the script says always that I may have forgotten to start EA or something else is wrong.

What I did is:
- "Install" Enterprise Architect Object Model or EA.tlb respectively via Excel References.
- "Install" Microsoft Word Object Library
- run "ea.exe /register".

Does anybody know if it is necessary to install EA.tlb via regtlibv12.exe?

Any other suggestions? Are any admin-rights required (e.g. to \Windows\System32)?

Is the reason that I use "GetObject(, "EA.App")? What if I started two EA's? Which one will be accessed?

Many thanks in advance, V.

Oh, and: the project integrity check doesn't catch this.

Hopefully one of the Sparxians catches this one.

It's in the Pro Cloud Server. It's listed under the "new features coming soon" section of the sales blurb, but the installation help page says it's in place. I haven't tested it myself though.

General Board / Security: Row Level Locking

I have a question about security in EA.
I have been reading about the addition of row level locking for EA. But I haven't really seen it. Neither in the released product nor in commitments to a future release. Can anyone shed some light on this???

The lock mechanism can sometimes get out of sync, especially if combined with version control, reusable assets, or some other function that exports/imports packages as XMI.

IIRC, the problem is a GUID mismatch. The locking mechanism locks by GUID (t_seclocks), and both packages and individual elements can be locked. Each package is represented by both a t_package row and a t_element row. Their GUIDs are supposed to match, but that match can break when something goes wrong during XMI import. When this happens, you're left with ghost locks.

So you should take a look at t_seclocks and verify that all its rows actually refer to valid GUIDs. You should also verify that each supposed package has both a t_package and a t_element row and that their GUIDs match.

Oh, and: the project integrity check doesn't catch this.

They could be the elements present only on diagrams like Note, Boundary, etc.
You should be able to verify that those elements on the diagrams won't be editable.
Only the person who created can unlock them.
Sparx has confirmed this as a bug.
