Error description

  • There are two scenarios that the customer has within their
    properties file (rhapsody.ini):
    
    Scenario 1: Convert on save- Only the saved unit are converted.
    ini file settings:
    [General]
    UpgradeBehavior=Rename
    KeepUnitFileOnSaveToNewFormatExtension=False
    [OneTimeMessageReplies]
    ProjectRepositoryUpgrade=8
    
    Scenario 2: Convert All - All the model files are converted on
    opening the Rhapsody model.
    ini file settings:
    [General]
    UpgradeBehavior=Rename
    KeepUnitFileOnSaveToNewFormatExtension=False
    [OneTimeMessageReplies]
    ProjectRepositoryUpgrade=2
    
    If you choose to 'convert on save', only the units that are
    saved, are converted. If you then switch back to 'convert All',
    and want to convert all the model files, batch convert doesn't
    happen - therefore scenario 2 is defective.
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Use Rhapsody 8.3 ifix2
    2. Keep the settings as mentioned in scenario 1.
    3. Open a Rhapsody model. Nothing is converted (as expected)
    4. Change some properties of the project and make save. Only the
    Rpy is converted to Rpyx  (as expected)
    5. Close Rhapsody and make the settings as in scenario 2. (Since
    now you want to convert all the files).
    6. Open the Rhapsody model. Nothing happens !!. Model files are
    still in old format!!!. (This is the bug)
