Danish Ø alphabet character in I/NET 2.42 build 2316 while upgrade from StruxureWare Building Operation 188.8.131.524 Beta 1 to 184.108.40.2062 Beta 2
TAC I/NET, SmartStruxure Solution
Windows operating system, I/NET 2.42 build 2316 loaded, StruxureWare Building Operation 220.127.116.114 Beta 1 wanting to upgrade to I/NET 2.42 build 2325 with 18.104.22.1682 Beta 2
Danish Ø character is not considered intelligent text. Upgrade from I/NET 2.42 build 2316 StruxureWare Building Operation 22.214.171.1244 Beta 1 to 126.96.36.1992 Beta 2 renders a empty database.
StruxureWare Building Operation views the Danish character as unintelligent text and a filler such as a block, triangle or other symbol.
Workaround is to edit the names or characters used and replace characters not in the English alphabet. In the example below I have replaced any ambiguous characters with an X. The upgrade performs without issue.
A second alternative is to upgrade I/NET to 2.42 build 2325 and StruxureWare Building Operation software to 188.8.131.522 Beta 2, which understands characters not in the English alphabet. Here I have placed Danish and Deutsch characters which upgrade without issue.
