DOORS OLE Objects are replaced with a white blank icon on Windows 7
Attempts to see the OLE objects on Microsoft Windows 7 after upgrading to IBM Rational DOORS 18.104.22.168 or above results in Blank icons.
Blank icons are seen in place of the OLE objects on a Windows 7 machine after upgrading to DOORS 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 or 9.4.
When you try to double click the object, it gives this message:
This object is a static DIB and cannot be activated
Note: The icons show correctly in the module using a Windows XP machine.
This issue was identified as a product defect and logged under APAR PM57507.
Static DIB OLE objects show as icon rather than as an embedded OLE.
This is only the case with DOORS 188.8.131.52 or higher and Windows 7.
In DOORS 184.108.40.206 and Windows 7 the static DIB displays fine (not as an icon)
In DOORS 220.127.116.11 and Windows XP or Windows 2003 Server, the static DIB displays fine
(not as an icon)
