5. Known Issues

The following are known issues in the latest release.

41499 logon If you have multiple instances of Dundas BI running on the same server, and the paths to these instances differ only by the port number, users will be logged out automatically when they navigate from one instance to another instance and log on. Returning to the previous instance requires the user to log on again.
36831 data connectors, flat file and Excel It is possible that two metric sets try to read from an Excel file at the same time, resulting in a Data Connection Exception error (Dundas.BI.Data.DataConnectionException). A workaround is to use the Warehouse option on the underlying data cube so that data will be read from the warehouse.
50521 data connectors, SSAS Executing certain valid MDX in SSAS 2012 fails with Internal error: An unexpected error occurred (file 'mdmisc.cpp', line 945, function 'MDBulkSetScaIter::Start'). Try installing SQL Server 2012 SP2 to fix this issue.
N/A user interface If your web browser has a plugin installed that adds a toolbar or occupies a portion of the browser real estate, this will affect the coordinate system of Dundas BI, resulting in various UI issues.
42075 dashboard designer, drag-and-drop Drag-and-drop files onto the dashboard canvas does not work in certain situations in Windows 8.
50600 dashboard designer, drop down list When viewing a scaled dashboard in Firefox and clicking a drop down list, the drop down menu may be incorrectly positioned. This is due to a Firefox bug.
51116 dashboard designer, editing label text When double-clicking on a label component to edit its text, a Webpage Error (JS error) may occur in Internet Explorer. This happens under very specific circumstances but does not interfere with the work flow. Simply click elsewhere and click on the label again.
39288 dashboard designer, filters Changes made in the Bind Filters dialog may not be saved after closing Internet Explorer.

6. Upgrade Notes

General notes to help with upgrading from earlier versions of Dundas BI.

50791 reports and scorecards After upgrading to Dundas BI 2.5 or later, when you try to open an existing report or scorecard in the designer, you may see a message 'This report was created in an earlier version of Dundas BI and needs to be upgraded. Contact the System Administrator to resolve this'. As an administrator, run a health check  to resolve this. The health check will try to detect warnings and errors related to reports and scorecards and fix errors where possible. Reports and scorecards that cannot be upgraded are listed as warnings (in yellow) by the health check. For example, a possible reason for this could be that one of the dependent data connectors cannot connect to its data source and thus you will need to investigate or resolve this first.
57023 standard export provider

When upgrading to a new standard export provider, the old standard export provider is not deleted causing the new one not to load. Workaround is to:

  1. Delete the files below from the folder "...\App_Data\Extensions\Dundas.StdExport\bin":
    • Dundas.BI.Export.StandardExportProviders.dll
    • phantomjs.exe
    • rasterize.js
  2. Restart IIS
