known issues

  • ARSystem API issue: Do not use ARGetMultipleEntries! As soon as you enable this function call in the file, mysterious crashes appear. There seems to be a bad memory corruption within the Remedy dll.
  • ARSystem API issue: It seems to be fairly easy to crash your server with ARGetMultipleSchemas (new in 6.3). E.g., in our tests, setting the last parameter objPropListList to NULL was certain to bring the server down; therefore, ARGetMultipleSchemas will now provide this structure, even when you call it with a NULL value. And the unit tests check for the correct client API version (by comparing it to the server version), before continuing (using the client 7 API crashed a 6.3 server with ARGetMultipleSchemas as well).
  • ARSystem API issue: ARGetMultipleVUIs (new in 6.3) seems to be buggy in any ARSystem DLL that I have come across yet, in that the locale list seems to be corrupted. Therefore, use this function with caution!
