Installation of
Visual C++ 2010
during client
installation
During PREEvision client installation, Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable is automatically
installed. If Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable is already installed on the computer, a
dialog will be displayed asking the user whether to reset or uninstall the existing
installation.
In this case, select the option to reset Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable to its original
state.
Database access
rights
The database access right QUERY REWRITE is no longer required for installing and
running the PREEvision database server.
Restore parameters
The following client/server parameters no longer have to be set for restore/migration:
>
-DenableDummyFileCreation
>
-DdisableCheckinChecks
For a restore, required parameters are automatically set on the server now.
Migration to a 3-tier
environment
For a migration from PREEvision 5.5/6.0 to a PREEvision 6.5 3-tier environment, first,
carry out a 2-tier to 2-tier migration to PREEvision 6.5. Afterwards, migrate to the new
3-tier environment using backup and restore.
For migration, a separate environment is required including a separate database
instance.
Reference: For detailed information about the migration, refer to the Operating
Manual.
Update of 3-tier
environments to
6.5 SP8
In a 3-tier environment, the PREEvision client, the database server and the
PREEvision application on the application server are only compatible within exactly the
same version. Using a new client version on a previous server version or a previous
client version on a new server version is not supported and may lead to data
inconsistencies or data loss.
The following table shows compatible client, server application and database server
script versions for specific PREEvision 6.5 versions:

Execution of
To apply to internal IT guidelines, the execution of LibreOffice is now managed by
LibreOffice managed PREEvision only. Users are no longer able to separately start LibreOffice without
by PREEvision
PREEvision running. Additionally, the installation path of the LibreOffice installation
integrated in PREEvision is read-only.
The described changes only apply to the LibreOffice installation integrated in
PREEvision, external LibreOffice installations remain unchanged.
Installation of
LibreOffice
dictionaries
LibreOffice is integrated in the PREEvision client for editing formatted texts and report
templates. To enable the LibreOffice spell check, a dictionary with the corresponding
language is required.
The dictionaries (LibreOfficeExtensions_v403.zip) now have to be separately
installed into the PREEvision installation directory after the PREEvision client
installation:

1.4 Known issues
Formatted text field
cannot be edited
Sporadically, a formatted text field will not be properly enabled for editing after clicking
into it.
Workaround: Click again into the formatted text field.
Borders of diagrams
and tables in a report
are not correctly
printed
(1715978292643)
Borders of diagrams or tables (OLE objects) contained in a report are not correctly
printed using the print function of LibreOffice.
Artifacts referenced
by a placeholder in a
report are not
automatically
selected
(34777,
1774840069822)
For generated reports, automatic selection of artifacts in the Model View has been
disabled due to an error in LibreOffice. When clicking on a placeholder in a report, the
selection is not automatically updated.
Software composition
types cannot be
changed via custom
model import
(1782615368223)
The custom model import does not work when an existing software composition type
of the target model shall be changed by the import (e.g. by adding a new software
prototype). In this case, the import is aborted with an error message.
Workaround: In LibreOffice, first use Export as PDF... and print the PDF document
afterwards.
Workaround: In the report toolbar, click the Select artifact at placeholder button to
select the associated artifact in the Model View.
Workaround: Perform a complete model import which creates new UUIDs for the
imported artifacts. Manually merge the relevant changes from the imported data into
the existing software composition type.
Moving a checked-in
Logical Function
Type creates illegal
model state
(1774840030000)
Moving a checked-in Logical Function Type from the Library to a Logical Function
creates an illegal model state. A dependently versioned artifact is created with different
revision information than its parent.
"Update Reuse Unit"
is only possible if
latest version is
contained in the
model
(1774844322645)
The Update Reuse Unit action is aborted with an error message, if the latest version
of the Reuse Unit is not contained in the current model.
Backup requires
increased hard disk
space
(1790491522658)
Creating a project backup of a multi-user project requires significantly increased hard
disk space.
Workaround: Check out the Logical Function Type before moving it from the Library.
Workaround: Add the latest version of the Reuse Unit to the current model.
In addition to the backup directory, the "richtexts" directory within the PREEvision
workspace allocates a lot of space.
The hard disk space is allocated during backup creation only. After completing backup
creation and closing the client, the allocated hard disk space is released.
Workaround: Provide sufficient hard disk space.

considered: If there are no changes in the
attribute definitions and data types, they are
allowed to be checked-in. The requirements
must be checked-out. In the import wizard the

3.4 Known issues
Formatted text field
cannot be edited
Sporadically, a formatted text field will not be properly enabled for editing after clicking
into it.
Workaround: Click again into the formatted text field.
Borders of diagrams
and tables in a report
are not correctly
printed
(1715978292643)
Borders of diagrams or tables (OLE objects) contained in a report are not correctly
printed using the print function of LibreOffice.
Artifacts referenced
by a placeholder in a
report are not
automatically
selected
(34777,
1774840069822)
For generated reports, automatic selection of artifacts in the Model View has been
disabled due to an error in LibreOffice. When clicking on a placeholder in a report, the
selection is not automatically updated.
Software composition
types cannot be
changed via custom
model import
(1782615368223)
The custom model import does not work when an existing software composition type
of the target model shall be changed by the import (e.g. by adding a new software
prototype). In this case, the import is aborted with an error message.
Workaround: In LibreOffice, first use Export as PDF... and print the PDF document
afterwards.
Workaround: In the report toolbar, click the Select artifact at placeholder button to
select the associated artifact in the Model View.
Workaround: Perform a complete model import which creates new UUIDs for the
imported artifacts. Manually merge the relevant changes from the imported data into
the existing software composition type.
Moving a checked-in
Logical Function
Type creates illegal
model state
(1774840030000)
Moving a checked-in Logical Function Type from the Library to a Logical Function
creates an illegal model state. A dependently versioned artifact is created with different
revision information than its parent.
"Update Reuse Unit"
is only possible if
latest version is
contained in the
model
(1774844322645)
The Update Reuse Unit action is aborted with an error message, if the latest version
of the Reuse Unit is not contained in the current model.
Backup requires
increased hard disk
space
(1790491522658)
Creating a project backup of a multi-user project requires significantly increased hard
disk space.
Workaround: Check out the Logical Function Type before moving it from the Library.
Workaround: Add the latest version of the Reuse Unit to the current model.
In addition to the backup directory, the "richtexts" directory within the PREEvision
workspace allocates a lot of space.
The hard disk space is allocated during backup creation only. After completing backup
creation and closing the client, the allocated hard disk space is released.
Workaround: Provide sufficient hard disk space.

-DdisableCheckinChecks
For a restore, required parameters are automatically set on the server now.
Migration to a 3-tier
environment
For a migration from PREEvision 5.5/6.0 to a PREEvision 6.5 3-tier environment, first,
carry out a 2-tier to 2-tier migration to PREEvision 6.5. Afterwards, migrate to the new
3-tier environment using backup and restore.
For migration, a separate environment is required including a separate database
instance.
Reference: For detailed information about the migration, refer to the Operating
Manual.
Update of 3-tier
environments to
6.5 SP5
In a 3-tier environment, the PREEvision client, the database server and the
PREEvision application on the application server are only compatible within exactly the
same version. Using a new client version on a previous server version or a previous
client version on a new server version is not supported and may lead to data
inconsistencies or data loss.

4.3 Changes
LibreOffice
documents
incompatible to
Microsoft Word
In PREEvision an integrated LibreOffice editor is used for editing formatted texts and
generating reports.
If a document which was created in LibreOffice is opened in Microsoft Word, its
presentation may be incorrectly changed or it might not be possible to open the
document. This applies to ODT documents as well as to documents stored in DOC
format via LibreOffice.
To avoid possible incompatibilities, ODT files created with PREEvision shall only be
opened or edited with LibreOffice.
Additionally, PREEvision no longer supports to create Word documents (DOC).
Therefore, the following changes have been implemented:
>
The menu item Save As... has been removed from the main menu of the
LibreOffice editor.
>
The *.doc format can no longer be selected during report generation.
>
The file extension "doc" can no longer be set as "saveType" for the Report
Executor metric block.
Note: The documentation for generating reports as well as for the Report Executor block
are currently outdated in the PREEvision manual and do not contain the restrictions
mentioned above.

(34777,
1774840069822)
For generated reports, automatic selection of artifacts in the Model View has been
disabled due to an error in LibreOffice. When clicking on a placeholder in a report, the
selection is not automatically updated.
Software composition
types cannot be
changed via custom
model import
(1782615368223)
The custom model import does not work when an existing software composition type
of the target model shall be changed by the import (e.g. by adding a new software
prototype). In this case, the import is aborted with an error message.
Workaround: In LibreOffice, first use Export as PDF... and print the PDF document
afterwards.
Workaround: In the report toolbar, click the Select artifact at placeholder button to
select the associated artifact in the Model View.
Workaround: Perform a complete model import which creates new UUIDs for the
imported artifacts. Manually merge the relevant changes from the imported data into
the existing software composition type.
Moving a checked-in
Logical Function
Type creates illegal
model state
(1774840030000)
Moving a checked-in Logical Function Type from the Library to a Logical Function
creates an illegal model state. A dependently versioned artifact is created with different
revision information than its parent.

(1774844322645)
The Update Reuse Unit action is aborted with an error message, if the latest version
of the Reuse Unit is not contained in the current model.
Backup requires
increased hard disk
space
(1790491522658)
Creating a project backup of a multi-user project requires significantly increased hard
disk space.
Workaround: Check out the Logical Function Type before moving it from the Library.
Workaround: Add the latest version of the Reuse Unit to the current model.
In addition to the backup directory, the "richtexts" directory within the PREEvision
workspace allocates a lot of space.
The hard disk space is allocated during backup creation only. After completing backup
creation and closing the client, the allocated hard disk space is released.
Workaround: Provide sufficient hard disk space.

Update of 3-tier
environments to
6.5 SP2
In a 3-tier environment, the PREEvision client, the database server and the
PREEvision application on the application server are only compatible within exactly the
same version. Using a new client version on a previous server version or a previous
client version on a new server version is not supported and may lead to data
inconsistencies or data loss.
The following table shows compatible client, server application and database server
script versions for PREEvision 6.5 to 6.5 SP2:

For an update of an existing 3-tier environment, all components with a changed version
number must be updated, which may include the:
>
PREEvision client
>
PREEvision database server script
>
PREEvision application on the application server
Reference: For detailed instructions on how to update a 3-tier environment, refer
to the Operating Manual.
To apply to internal IT guidelines, the execution of LibreOffice is now managed by
Execution of
LibreOffice managed PREEvision only. Users are no longer able to separately start LibreOffice without
PREEvision running. Additionally, the installation path of the LibreOffice installation
by PREEvision
integrated in PREEvision is read-only.
The described changes only apply to the LibreOffice installation integrated in
PREEvision, external LibreOffice installations remain unchanged.
Installation of
LibreOffice
dictionaries
LibreOffice is integrated in the PREEvision client for editing formatted texts and report
templates. To enable the LibreOffice spell check, a dictionary with the corresponding
language is required.
The dictionaries (LibreOfficeExtensions_v403.zip) now have to be separately
installed into the PREEvision installation directory after the PREEvision client
installation:

Workaround: Perform a complete model import which creates new UUIDs for the
imported artifacts. Manually merge the relevant changes from the imported data into
the existing software composition type.
Moving a checked-in
Logical Function
Type creates illegal
model state
(1774840030000)
Moving a checked-in Logical Function Type from the Library to a Logical Function
creates an illegal model state. A dependently versioned artifact is created with different
revision information than its parent.
"Update Reuse Unit"
is only possible if
latest version is
contained in the
model
(1774844322645)
The Update Reuse Unit action is aborted with an error message, if the latest version
of the Reuse Unit is not contained in the current model.

Reference: For detailed information about the installation and compatibility of
PREEvision 6.5, refer to PREEvision 6.5 - Installation and compatibility information.
Installation of
Visual C++ 2010
during client
installation
During PREEvision client installation, Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable is automatically
installed. If Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable is already installed on the computer, a
dialog will be displayed asking the user whether to reset or uninstall the existing
installation.
In this case, select the option to reset Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable to its original
state.
Reinitializing the
authority model
For an update of a multi-user environment from PREEvision 6.5 to 6.5 SP1, the
authority model must be reinitialized. Therefore, proceed just as usual for a migration:
1. Export the latest version of the existing authority model.
2. Initialize a new authority model with PREEvision 6.5 SP1.
3. Merge customer-specific changes from the PREEvision 6.5 backup into the newly
initialized authority model.
Reference: For detailed information about the migration of the authority model,
refer to the Operating Manual.
Update of 3-tier
environments to
6.5 SP1
In a 3-tier environment, the PREEvision client, the database server and the
PREEvision application on the application server are only compatible within exactly the
same version. Using a new client version on a previous server version or a previous
client version on a new server version is not supported and may lead to data
inconsistencies or data loss.
The following table shows compatible client, server application and database server
script versions PREEvision 6.5 and 6.5 SP1:
Client version Server application
version
Database server script
version
6.5.0
6.5.0
6.5.0.24
6.5.1
6.5.1
6.5.1.3
For an update of an existing 3-tier environment, all components with a changed version
number must be updated, which may include the:
>
PREEvision client
>
PREEvision database server script
>
PREEvision application on the application server
Reference: For detailed instructions on how to update a 3-tier environment, refer
to the Operating Manual.

PREEvision 6.5 SP1
To apply to internal IT guidelines, the execution of LibreOffice is now managed by
Execution of
LibreOffice managed PREEvision only. Users are no longer able to separately start LibreOffice without
PREEvision running. Additionally, the installation path of the LibreOffice installation
by PREEvision
integrated in PREEvision is read-only.
The described changes only apply to the LibreOffice installation integrated in
PREEvision, external LibreOffice installations remain unchanged.
Installation of
LibreOffice
dictionaries
LibreOffice is integrated in the PREEvision client for editing formatted texts and report
templates. To enable the LibreOffice spell check, a dictionary with the corresponding
language is required.
The dictionaries (LibreOfficeExtensions_v403.zip) now have to be separately
installed into the PREEvision installation directory after the PREEvision client
installation:
Reference: For detailed information, refer to the Operating Manual.

FlexRay busload
table
PREEvision now offers a preconfigured FlexRay busload table. The FlexRay busload
table is an example for a configured table in the area of communication showing a set
of attributes for the scheduled PDUTransmissions in a FlexRay bus. This table is
available on the Schedule.
FlexRay comparison
configurations
PREEvision now offers two preconfigured comparison configurations for FlexRay as
an example for extending the comparison functionality.
>
The "FIBEX Elements" Compare Configuration presents the main FIBEX elements
starting from a Schedule displaying them in a very similar structure as they appear
in a FIBEX file.
>
The "FlexRay Communication Matrix" Compare Configuration prepares the data
to be compared starting from a determined component (ECU, Sensor, etc.)
showing only the communication aspect of it.
Signal and frame
overview tables
PREEvision now offers two predefined tables available on a Communication
Package. The "Signal Overview" table and the "Frame Overview" table display the main
attributes of the Signals and Frames contained in the Communication Package.
Support of J2602
The LDF import/export now supports the J2602 format.

8.5 Known issues
Perspective
configurations are
missing/defective
after migration
(1776954442658,
1778004672658)
When migrating a 2-tier model without files (files are excluded from the backup),
perspective configuration files are not automatically added to the model during
migration.
When migrating with files (files are included in the backup), the perspective
configuration files added during migration are partly defective.
Workaround: After the migration:
1. Load the latest model version of the migrated model.
2. Delete all existing contents from the Administration | Perspective Configuration
Model (if available).
3. Use Administration | Initialize current model with default setup and select the
Perspective Configuration Model to be merged with the current model.
Double click does not Sporadically, double clicking on an artifact may not open the defined standard editor.
open the standard
For example, instead of a table, diagram or report template, the form editor is always
editor
opened.
Workaround: Keep <CTRL> pressed and double click again. Afterwards, double click
again.
<CTRL> and double click opens the form editor. Afterwards, a double click correctly
opens the standard editor.
Formatted text field
cannot be edited
Sporadically, a formatted text field will not be properly enabled for editing after clicking
into it.
Workaround: Click again into the formatted text field.
Borders of diagrams
and tables in a report
are not correctly
printed
(1715978292643)
Borders of diagrams or tables (OLE objects) contained in a report are not correctly
printed using the print function of LibreOffice.
Initialize current
model with default
setup requires parent
package
(1774831442676)
When selecting a specific package to be initialized with the default setup, the same
package has to be already available in the current model. Otherwise, the contents will
not be merged.
Workaround: In LibreOffice, first use Export as PDF... and print the PDF document
afterwards.
For example, selecting only the "Compare Configurations" package to be integrated in
the model does only work, if the "Compare Configurations" package is already available
in the current model.
Workaround: Manually create the parent packages of the items to be integrated.
Moving a checked-in
Logical Function
Type creates illegal
model state
(1774840030000)
- 94 -
Moving a checked-in Logical Function Type from the Library to a Logical Function
creates an illegal model state. A dependently versioned artifact is created with different
revision information than its parent.
Workaround: Check out the Logical Function Type before moving it from the Library.

impossible
(1775905862680)
The Update Reuse Unit action is aborted with an error message, if the latest version
of the Reuse Unit is not contained in the current model.
Workaround: Add the latest version of the Reuse Unit to the current model.
The highlighting for a selected artifact is lost when clicking on the diagram palette. The
problem occurs in the Geometry Diagram and in the Wiring Diagram.
Workaround: Select the artifact in the Model View or the Favorites and pin the view.
Replacing a version with a version from its history is not possible if the artifact type has
been changed, e.g. from ECU to Sensor.
Workaround: Instead of a type change, create a new artifact.
Diagram layout is not Copying a diagram layout into another diagram does not work correctly for rotated

Reinitializing the
authority model
For an update of a multi-user environment from the PREEvision 6.5 release to any
PREEvision 6.5 service pack, the authority model must be reinitialized. Therefore,
proceed just as usual for a migration:
1. Export the latest version of the existing authority model.
2. Initialize a new authority model with PREEvision 6.5 SP.
3. Merge customer-specific changes from the PREEvision 6.5 backup into the newly
initialized authority model.
Reference: For detailed information about the migration of the authority model,
refer to the Operating Manual.
Licenses and license For PREEvision 6.5, new licenses are required.

9.3 New features
Collaboration
Platform as 3-tier
environment
Automatic locking
PREEvision Collaboration Platform is available as 3-tier environment, now. The 3-tier
platform contains all features of the current 2-tier platform and provides the following
new and additional features:
>
Branches:
Branches are available to check out a historic artifact revision to start a parallel
development line. Branches can be created during check-out on the basis of any
artifact version. In the Check-out dialog the user defines whether a new
development line for an artifact shall be started by creating a new branch. Branches
are visible in the Model View, the Version History and the Property View.
>
Search in history:
The search option Current and historic model versions is available. In the
search result view, historic artifacts are indicated by a grey font color. The column
Model version provides the corresponding model version. A historic artifact
version can be inserted in the current model as new artifact or as reuse.
>
Life cycle history:
On the Lifecycle property page, an additional life cycle History table is available.
The life cycle history displays all life cycle state changes an artifact has passed
through during its life cycle.
>
Subversion integration:
File handling in PREEvision’s 3-tier environment is now supported by the open
source revision control system Subversion (SVN). Working copies of file structures
can be created which improves the handling of large file structures and provides
the base functionality for several use cases, for example test data management.
>
Middleware license server (optional):
Server licenses can be managed in the integrated middleware license server.
Alternatively, node-locked licenses can be used.
With PREEvision 6.5, an automatic locking concept has been introduced. The user can
now directly start editing or start an action without prior locking. This works for all
actions in PREEvision including diagrams and shared locks. With the automatic lock
handling, lock conflicts can be reduced, since only the minimum required locks are
determined and obtained.

perspectives
PREEvision now starts with a cockpit view on the user interface. The cockpit provides
use case oriented entry points into PREEvision. With just a few clicks you reach the
user interface that is available for your use case. An expert mode is also available that
corresponds to the former PREEvision E/E standard perspective.
With the help of Model View and Property View filters, perspectives can be
customized to display only the artifacts relevant for the use case and keep the user
interface clearly arranged.

Usability
improvements for
drag and drop
operations
(Assistance view)
A navigation bar at the top of the Property View displays the parent hierarchy of
the currently selected artifact and can be used to navigate to any artifact within the
hierarchy.
An Assistance View is now available to support drag and drop operations. Depending
on the currently selected drag and drop target, the Assistance View displays artifacts
suitable for the drag and drop operation. The Assistance View is automatically loaded
when clicking on a Property View table or a table editor to which artifacts can be added.

Compare of artifacts
The compare functionality has been revised and now supports to compare model parts.
The compare can now be started from the shortcut menu via the following items:
>
Select as left side for compare
>
Compare with <artifact>
>
Compare with each other (if two artifacts are selected)
The shortcut menu items are available in the Model View, Version/Commit History
and in tables.
The compare algorithm now considers reuses, files and formatted text.
Additionally, configurations for the compare function can be created to determine the
artifacts, attributes and relations to be compared.
The compare result is now displayed in a double-tree editor and can be exported to
Excel.
Software architecture The software architecture layer has been optimized and aligned with the AUTOSAR
standard. Using a library-based approach according to AUTOSAR, it is now possible
to work with types and prototypes in the Library. Additionally, the instance-based
approach is supported as well. Therefore, it is now possible to work directly with
software instances in the System Software Architecture while the associated (proto-)
types are automatically synchronized in the Library.
By these changes, the memory consumption of the complete software architecture
layer has been reduced and the usability has been improved for AUTOSAR users.
Safety features
In PREEvision 6.5, malfunction mapping has been introduced, allowing EEarchitecture artifacts to be annotated (mapped) with malfunctions.
Malfunctions carry safety-relevant constraints such as the failure rate which allows a
quantitative safety approach on the annotated artifacts.
PREEvision provides a safety characteristics library to create a catalogue of
malfunctions which fit to the respective level of modeling.
