Unfortunately, the issue is that Windows intentionally reports fake values when moving between monitors. It's meant to be isolating EA from DPI differences on different monitors, but it's doing it badly and there's no way for EA to detect that it's happening.

The window shadow can be prevented by changing your Visual Style to one that doesn't draw the shadow. Unfortunately, the only way I know of to make the window movement correct is to set the DPI scaling to be the same for both screens, which is probably going to make the EA UI very small on your laptop screen.

Bugs and Issues / Re: ActivityParameter _instanceType not honoured

Unless I'm mistaken, _instanceType is only used for stereotyped Classifiers when dropping from the project browser onto the diagram.

On the other hand, the version 14 metaconstraints are more flexible and powerful.

I don't know how it's going to go for Activities with Parameters. But for classifiers containing ports it can create the appropriate stereotypes on the slots of an instance based on the classifier and slot rule types.

Yes some issues have been 'fixed' but most not and some of those that have been done are bodged, for example by scaling up icons thereby making them blurry instead of providing new icons. If you think these are 'real improvements' then I'm afraid you have let your standards slip.

It is just not good enough.
I know I'm not going to convince you otherwise, but for the sake of anyone else who is interested

I understand that you don't think scaling up icons is appropriate. You'd like every icon in EA to be redrawn for multiple DPI levels. I suggest to you that there are plenty of things in EA where that attention would be better spent. But say we did add icons at different sizes. Maybe we'd end up with 100%, 125%, 150%, 200% and 400%.  It's very unlikely that you would see any icons for 250%, so you're going to be stuck with scaled icons.

When I said real improvements. Multiple people including me, used EA on a high DPI screen. Then documented and had fixed the things that made basic diagramming hard to use. The immediate result was:

Release Notes for 14.0 ( BETA ) Build 1404
High DPI compatibility improvements have been added to the following items:
    - Quick Linker icons, object tracking handles, toolbox icons, toolbox search control and buttons

There are more along these lines in other builds that are part of 14, but the point is that these are all issues that impact useability, not just the visual side of an icon not looking perfect if you screen capture it and zoom in.

Now that the cause is know a fix *should* be around the corner...

Read up the thread a little... The cause was already known, it was fixed in version 11.

As I've said, it's an iterative process.

You can choose to look at it that we have ignored the issue, or see that there have been real improvements.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Enterprise architect as SAAS
« on: April 23, 2018, 09:22:54 am »
Enterprise Architect is a Desktop application. It is not available as SaaS.

The Pro Cloud Server can be hosted on Azure or AWS, but we don't usually do that for you.

Not sure I can comment further without more information.

I'd recommend sending in a support request. If you can, include images of where you have assigned the path and the package generation dialog.

Not sure why it would be doing that, and I swear I've installed it on a domain where I don't have anything but local admin rights.

If you can give our support team more information I'm sure we can find the problem.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA using Wine and ODBC
« on: April 20, 2018, 08:43:41 am »
The issue I see here all the time is that updating wine breaks the ODBC in strange ways.

If you're problem is related to the same thing, you can fix it by running the following command:

winetricks --force mdac28

It still (mostly) works for me, although sometimes the ribbon appears to eat the combination.

Bugs and Issues / Re: IIS Configuration

That's about the level that I can help you. I've always preferred the embedded web server, much easier to set up.

If you don't want EA to set filenames for you, don't check "Auto Generate Files". (

Short of creating an MDG add-in, there's nowhere EA calls code you can write to request the filename. The easiest solution is to write a script that sets the filenames for all classes as needed.

The Application Pool settings in the EA help say that you need to enable 32-Bit applications. It sounds like you haven't done that.

From memory, enabling auditing upgrades the version to 7.0 to that versions of EA prior to version 7 know they shouldn't use it.

Disabling auditing either gives you the option of going back to 4.01 or does it automatically.

In a similar way, if you set a minimum EA version in the model options, it changes the version to something that old versions of EA that don't know about the option just set won't open.
