I’ve been in the USA for quite some times. But Nashville was new, never been there before. So I increased my State count to 39! 11 to go.
The cheapest flight I could get was from Hannover. Via Amsterdam (which is closer to me, but don’t skip a leg, that’ll cost you….amazing in this time of saving the environment….)
So I got on the plane to AMS early for the stopover to… Toronto! I’ve been there before, twice. Nice city! There I would get on a plane to Nashville.
I was in Nashville for the Kick-off Conference of our beloved USA partner 321-Gang.
After the Kick-Off there was, luckily, some time left to visit Florida, a real must in winter time 😉 After 3 nice warm days I was on the way back ( ;-( ;-( ;-( ) But that was less easy then I thought… Again I would fly via Toronto but the plane coming from Toronto had a delay (Cause: medical Emergency…)
The information on the duration of the delay was very fuzzy. I tried to find out an alternative way to fly home but there was no real alternative.
So I gambled on the original flight that was earlier then expected.
It was, for hours and hours, on the tipping point of “Not going to make it” and “Just in Time”. I hate that.
To cut a long story short: The fact that I had to cross customs in Canada made me miss my plane.
So I had to spend another 24 hours in Canada. With only T-Shirts. And with -13ºC outside…
Luckily KLM was very, extremely good and they shifted my flight (They didn’t have to, i was on the cheap non-refundable flight) WestJet (Canada air-carrier operating for Delta) did not want to reimburse my Hotel costs.. “Use your insurance”…. Yeah I will.
Reverse and Roundtrip
In the last versions of Rhapsody we receive an increasing number of complaints about issues with Reverse and/or Roundtrip Engineering.
The issues are:
- Reverse Engineering seems to start but does not give a result.
- “Populate Diagram” is missing in the “Operation” menu
A possibility is that your license is too old. What?? But everything works fine, except….
That is correct. Your old license also works for newer Rhapsody versions, I don’t understand that either, i’d link that to newer versions and support payments but hey, I know nothing about that….
So, exactly right. In some version of Rhapsody there was an entry added in the license file for Reverse/Roundtrip. Adding this solves the problem. You can generate a new license file in the License Key Center. (If you have a support contract with SodiusWillert (or Sodius or Willert or event somewhere else) we’ll help you.
Most of these problems are related to the 32/64-bit version of Rhapsody. Due to some historic reasons the 64-bit version of Rhapsody lacked a lot of options that the 32-bit version had.
Also because of the way Windows is built, it is not easy to almost impossible to start 32-bit apps from 64-bit apps and vice-versa.
You can install both the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Rhapsody even from the same install version. Remember that you then also need both Service Packs if you upgrade!
Then you can start 32-bit if you want to do stuff that involves any roundtrip or reverse engineering and use the 64-bit for everything else. Models are interchangeable.
So. That’s it. Have fun modelling with Rhapsody
