  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Static DIB OLE objects show as icon rather than as an embedded
    OLE.
    
    This is only the case with DOORS 9.3.0.6 AND Windows 7.
    - In DOORS 9.3.0.5 and Windows 7 the static DIB displays fine
    (not as an icon)
    - In DOORS 9.3.0.6 and Windows XP or Windows 2003 Server, the
    static DIB displays fine (not as an icon).

    ****************************************************************
    This behavior was introduced in 9.3.0.6 to address a DOORS
    client crash while rendering corrupted DIBs under Windows 7.
    That time we didn't have sufficient data to narrow down the
    specific reason hence all the static DIBs were iconified
    under Windows 7
    

Problem conclusion

  • We have fixed this at DOORS client side. Now only corrupted
    DIBs (having incorrect bitmap header which cannot be
    rendered under Windows 7) will be displayed as icon.
    Otherwise all the valid DIBs will be rendered the same as
    Windows XP.
