Error description

  • If you enable DXL security and specify new addins and DXL home
    paths all DXL access points seem to be updated except the DXL
    library available via Tools;DXL Library...
    
    If you use this menu entry you will be able to run the local
    copies of the DXL (which you can potentially maliciously
    modify).
    
    
    To recreate:
    
     - as the Administrator specify new addins and DXL library paths
    in the database properties
     - move your local addins and DXL library into those locations
    to make them valid
     - modify the DXL of either the local or remote copies so you
    can determine which is being run (e.g. by modifying the message
    in lib\dxl\addins\user\fn.dxl)
     - restart your client and open a formal module
     - select Tools;DXL Library then under 'User-defined DXL
    library' double-click 'User Function'
     - observing the message you will see that it is the local copy
    which is being run.

    The path used to discover the contents of the DXL library is
    still being read from the local machine
    

Problem conclusion

  • The path requires updating to read from either the secure
    settings or the local machine if no setting.
