Problem summary

  • Users Affected: Customers running GSW 5.3.1
    VC++ exception in tx32.exe while importing/exporting data
    into/out of Gentran Server for windows 5.3.1.1
    

Problem conclusion

  • TX32.exe was crashing when trying to import outbound documents
    into the workspace causing GNTXEngine to enter a retry loop
    reprocessing the inbound file.  This crash was a result of
    Microsoft changing their CTime class to use a new _maketime64
    function in the newer compilers (VS2005 and up).  The import
    process uses CTime to set a number of time variables, one of
    those being a check value of Jan 1, 1970 @ 00:00.  This new MFC
    _maketime64 gets the sytem's time zone, then either adds or
    subtracts time from this value because it now assumes the value
    being provided is 00:00 GMT.  If your time zone is UCT 01:00+
    to UCT 13:00+, this will subtract time from this value
    invalidating it causing a runtime exception. To resolve this we
    adjusted our check value to Jan 2, 1970 @ 00:00.  Customers in
    these time zones trying to import docs into their workspace
    will experience this issue as well.
    Delivered in:
    GSW 5.3.1.2
