Bug ID OLI Case Alliance Product Description Reported By Resolved By
4541   Aspen Plus

When loading an existing cwa file created with 9.3.2 the Aspen ID and Alias are not loaded if they were modified.

The "OLIAspenPlusComponentXRefMap" section in the cwa file was renamed to "OLIAspenPlusComponentXRefMapOld" but never loaded. Since no changes to the section were made, the loader now looks for both "OLIAspenPlusComponentXRefMap" and "OLIAspenPlusComponentXRefMapOld" and only writes out the section "OLIAspenPlusComponentXRefMap"

OLI CD
4636 16122 Aspen Plus

While testing I encountered an error message in ChemWiz for Aspen Plus saying that " AspenPlus IDs are missing for one or more components and they are listed in file missing.nam" However when I checked the UI, all the Aspen IDs seemed to be present.

Updated logic to correct the Aspen Id's for Assays

Bug ID OLI Case Alliance Product Description Reported By Resolved By
3605 13876 ProII

Security Error with pseudocomponents and assays.

Pseudocomponents/assays have been allowed to use for the Limited databank in PROII. Users having restricted license can access the Pseudos/assays along with limited species

User (US) CD
3797 14376 All

Export generated pseudocomponent data to excel created from an assay.

Added right click menu to assay cut list to allow copying of assay data.

User (US) CD

Main title changes to generic Chemistry Wizard after leaving first screen

Update code to maintain proper title for application

OLI CD
3906   Aspen Plus

CW-AspenPlus crashing for AQ model inflow only species. For Example: TLOH, TLIIIOH3

Certain inflow only species combination causes a buffer overflow. Fixed by increasing size of buffer.

OLI AR
3930   Aspen Plus

Adding TLOH species in AQ  framework crashes the chemistry wizard during file generation

Increased size of species buffer because some inflow only species can cause an overflow in the aspen pre-processor.

Bug ID OLI Case Alliance Product Description Reported By Resolved By
3716 14176 Aspen Plus

When a user was trying to work with the cwa file with OLI Engine for Aspen 9.2.6 Build, the solids were originally off. When the solids where then turned on , the screen on the right to the solids, was not populated with the Solids list. When the user went one screen back and clicked Next again, the solids were now visible.

Solids button needs to be on while generating the model, solids list not generated interactively
.


Solid list is now populated regardless of solid phase state

User (US) CD
3722   Aspen Plus

Xref names not populated in the list when file is opened.

The XRef names are updated when solids are retrieved. In this case solids were off so the list was not updated and was therefore empty. Correct code to updated the list regardless of the solid phase selection.

OLI CD
3748   Aspen Plus

Turning off Generate bkp file takes off Aspen OLI Xref from the dbs file

There was an error in the logic that prevented the dbs file from being updated. This has been corrected.

When opening an MSE dbs file, the model may be imported as aqueous.

Currently the dataank type was used to identify the model, however the databank lines were identified by .ddb (case sensitive). Some dbs files are being written in uppercase so the test was failing. Changed to use the MSE flag in the size parameters of the dbs file.

3219 12802 Aspen Plus

ASID and ASNM records ignored in MSEPUB if a private databank is used

Tested in 9.2.1 and this issue has been resolved.

The "Help > About OLI Software" is missing from Chemistry Generator.  This makes it difficult to know the installed build number.

Updated 'About OLI Software' dialogue to accept/change security.

User PK
3449 13459 Aspen Plus

Chemistry wizard fails with a Aspen ID for a name that is too long.  Seems to use the same name twice.

Updated to use Aspen solid id with the '-S' removed for components that have no entry in the GENERAL section. If no solid tag exists we truncate OLI Tag to 8 characters.

Partner CD
3461 13486 ALL

Species count exceeded but there no method of increasing species limit.

Updated default limit from 300 to 1500, a system.siz file would need to be created for larger models setting NNSP to a larger number.

3354

While using Chemistry wizard to open a pre-existing model with a private databank which my machine does not have, I face the following issue.

On the second page of model generation, in the right hand column, a certain Rates databank was unavailable. I removed it from the list , but the Next button greyed out and I had to go back to the first step and click Next again to proceed.

Updated code to handle enabling/disabling next button correctly (CD)

2587(10759) When updating a chemistry model a crash occurs because the path of the model was improperly applied.
2588(10723)

The REDOX phenomena was actually disabled when the list of redox systems was reviewed.

The internal Redox flag was not set as current after loading a case, corrected the load code to do this.

2595(10770)

Adding a standard INERT species to the model causes a crash when running.

Inert section in mod file was being updated if no inert solids had overridden parameters causing a crash. No longer write section if nothing changed

1699(8431)

CRASH: Generating model with assay data results in a crash, cannot find solids

This appeared to be caused by an invalid databank selection. Added code to prevent moving on if an invalid databank is selected (should only be possible on a reloaded case). (CD)

1768

Using Numbers as an assay or pseudocomponent name results in an error.

Added checks to validate names for Pseudo Components and Assay's and prevent calculation or adding to model without it being corrected. Previous cases with this issue will need to be manually corrected.(CD)

1700(8431)

Cannot change default values for CP or Density for inerts.

Code was merged that removed PPT from the names in the list, it was needed for matching later. Added code to allow removal of PPT for clarity but now put it back internally when needed. (CD)

   
3.2.4 General Release   07.11.2011
Bug ID Description
1316 (7700)

Previous versions of the Chemistry Wizard only allowed for private databases to be in the system database folder not in the same folder as the model (dbs) file.

This has been corrected. You can now use private databases that are loaded in the working folder.

1547(7766) Updated the solids selection list to match the current Analyzer screens
1601(7459)

Code was added to prevent you from using a name for a pseudocomponent that has the same name as an existing species in the database. 

1602(7459)

When using PC's, the support files such as the A01 file is located in the start up folder of the icon and not the working folder which holds the CWS file.

Files now go into model folder

1697(8431) Selective redox crashed with sulfur chemistry during the model generation. A copy of S(-2) was detected. This was corrected

Bug ID Description
1451

Add a Pseudo component with the name "Pyrene" and the generator will fail with code 69. The names need to be in all upper case.

modified dialogs to only allow upper case entry for Pseudo Component and Assay Names. Also modified code to fix old cases on load.

   
3.1.5 General Release

Comments

  • All versions of the Chemistry Wizard are now combined as one product
08.31.2010
Bug ID Description
1144

If a new assay is created with empty/incomplete data, the "empty" assay is created and the application crashes on clicking the next button. Creating an empty pseudo component is also possible, however, it doesn't cause a crash.

Code was added to check assay status to prevent crash

1172

Test the name of the model file to prohibit special characters. Aspen reports that the "-" and the "." cause strange behavior in the code.

Must start with ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789
and then limited to ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789+-$

1425 (7294)

The splash screen for the Chemistry Wizard does not conform to Aspen Standards. They agreed to change it to an OLI Screen.

Now use OLI Splash screen
