Important message for Dezyne users on Windows

  • Due to file locking policies and permission issues users who are using Dezyne on a Windows system are required to remove their Node.js (with npm) installation (self installed or previously installed by Dezyne) and stop all ‘node.exe’ processes (via the Task Manager) before running the Dezyne Eclipse GUI 2.3.x for the first time.

    • if self installed: remove the 'npm' and 'npm-cache' directories from 'C:\Users\windowsusername\AppData\Roaming' and uninstall 'Node.js' via the 'Control Panel'

    • if installed by Dezyne: remove the 'node-v6.2.1-win-x64' directory from 'C:\Users\windowsusername'

on first start-up of Dezyne the latest stable version of Node.js (with npm) will be installed on your system. Additionally, the Dezyne command line client (together with a daemon) will also be installed.

Known issues

  • Views (i.e. system views, state charts, state and event tables) are not cleared if they can not be updated due to an error in the model or due to missing data
