This will be more than you probably want to know but thought it might be useful if anyone else encounters the same as I have. I have no explanation for what is going on.
My one and only project with A/S is a coordinate geometry application with separate sub-apps, one for each of 3 screen sizes plus one for an evaluation version. 4 total. This began many years ago with hardly any need for revisions other than cosmetically, so did not need major upgrades except when necessary to keep my project alive. Therefore, I recently upgraded from vs 6 to 8.2 so I could continue including a native android version with voltbuilder before phonegap went away.
I discovered that the “nsx” extension was no longer used. This was well explained in a blog article by George. Therefore, one of the first things I did after upgrading was change the extension of my nsx files simply by doing a “save as” from the IDE without giving another file name. It automatically inserted the “appstudio” folder name and replaced nsx with “.project” to the existing file name.
My evaluation version opens with those words displayed on the first screen. The other sub- apps display something applicably different when opened. Now for the weird part…let’s say I open “icogo7.nsx” (the 7” sub-app) before doing a “save as”. Oops, It opens with “evaluation version” displayed on the first screen, although it says “icogo7.nsx” on the top. In other words, I type in a file name but something else opens.
This also happened with a few of the other sub-apps. They opened the evaluation instead of what was expected. I never saw this before the upgrade. Fortunately I had backed up my nsx files more that once prior to the upgrade so I had multiple locations from which to retrieve them. But not all nsx files acted this way so it wasn’t consistent and a good thing for I was able to get a full set of files with the proper extension using “save as” by trying other nsx files with the same name.
A real head scratcher for me but maybe simple for one of the gurus. Please don’t spend a lot time on this because I think I have what I need now but maybe it will be good for the insomniacs.
