Unable to open certain files with Unit4 Financial Data Suite

Version 1

    Problem

    When working with Unit4 Financial Data Suite and trying to open an Excel sheet or Adobe pdf file, nothing happens. When deleting the File Type Associations for these applications, the problem seems to be solved.

    Cause

    If a pdf file is opened, pwrgate should be started trough the File Type Association. Pwrgate is started, however it does not receive any parameters and therefore does not know what to do.

    Solution

    Specify the environment variable "pwrgatekeepalive" with the value "yes" for the parent application on application level. By doing this, pwrgate.exe will keep running, as long as the child application is active and the created document is not deleted.

    The variable "pwrgatekeepalive" is available from RES PowerFuse 7.03 and later.
