Error description

  • On Windows 7 OLE's are displayed as icons and static metafiles
    cannot be activated.
    On Windows XP, the same OLEs working fine.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Copy the OLE (on a XP machine) and paste into MS Word, Then copy
    the OLE from MS Word back into the DOORS module and the OLE
    appears correctly on a Windows 7 machine.
    
    This is a particular issue with baselines, as the workaround
    cannot be applied to baselines.

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

Problem conclusion

  • We have fixed this, 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 same as Windows XP.
