How to find the build number for a specific Optim version
Optim versions for customers can be downloaded from your personally configured Passport Advantage ( PA ) download area. The names of the files, which will be saved on disk are crypt and do not contain any hint about the version in itself.
Sometimes it is necessary to find out which version of Optim is a such file, named like this: CZD0AEN.ZIP
In Optim versions before 8, there is an empty directory in the directory structure, after the downloaded compressed file was extracted. The name of this empty directory, starting with "Bld..." reflects the build number of the specific Optim version.
In a command line operation on Unix or Windows, the directory structure can be created with the command "ls -la" for Unix and Linux, or with the command "dir" for Windows.
- Example from Optim 7.3.1 for Linux:
$ ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP 4096 Aug 4 06:51 Bld3638
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP 4096 Aug 4 06:51 enterpris
-rwxr--r-- 1 optim731 OPTIMGRP 90196458 Aug 4 06:51 install.bin
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP 4096 Aug 4 06:51 Linux
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP 4096 Aug 4 06:52 OptimConnectInstallationManuals
-rwxr--r-- 1 optim731 OPTIMGRP 953 Aug 4 06:51 optim_installer.properties
- With this directory name, Bld3638, the build number can be used to find out the appropriate Optim version; in this example "3638" :
