I personally don't trust either method. I create my own enumeration (True, False, and sometimes TBD) and use that for my tagged values.


Who wrote the add-in?

That is realistically the only one who can investigate and solve the problem.
The error code represents "Class not registered".

This usually means that the add-in is trying to create a COM object by the ClassName, but for some reason the class isn't registered correct.
Installing a 64 bit application instead of a 32 bit application could very well be the cause of the issue.


Received confirmation from Sparx that this is indeed not supported.

They have logged a feature request on my behalf.

The idea of the SQL Query method is to call that one recursively untill you have all the ID's of all nested elements.

That is definitely the fastest way to get the elements.

If you find that slow, there's a faster alternative using SQL:,38987.msg259113.html#msg259113


Which EA version? For 15.x and below you can use #WC#. No idea for 16.x

Not in the search term field I think.


Didn't that exist already?

See and fast forward to 16:29

How is your solution different?


PS. Also a very useful video for those that suffer from insomnia ;D

I found a reasonably reproducable crash with EA v16.1.1622 in the 64 bit edition.
This doesn't seem to happen in the 32 bit edition.

When I generate a few schema composer schema's with my Message Composer, EA crashes hard.
It never happens on the first generation, but often on the second or third one.
The error in the event viewer:

Faulting application name: EA.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x637c546c

I've sent this info, plus the mini-dump to support.


Bugs and Issues / Re: UTF-8 Javascript import to notes problem

And tested this but didn't work
app = Repository.GetElementByGuid(sourceGUID);
Xnote = Repository.GetFormatFromField("TXT", applicationToCheck[15]);
app.Notes = Xnote;


Have you checked what get put into Xnote?
Does it work with the current version (or v15)?


PS. You can loose the call to Refresh()

Someone reported a similar problem a few days ago.

Have you tried with the latest version (16.1.1622)?

Can you also post the code that you are using to update the notes, and how they get corrupted?

EA saves the notes in a xml like format in the database, so the "special" characters will get xml encoded.
They should look allright when viewing using the GUI

You might need to use the function Repository.GetFieldFromFormat (string Format, string Text) before saving to the notes.


I have reported the same problem (amongst others) a while ago:,47342.0.html

Still no solution in v16.1.1622

Please make sure to report the problem to Sparx. The more people report it, the more likely they will take it seriously.


the EA's version is 15.2.

I made an Add-On Installer, but it seems that some interface changed, I can't install it for EA 16.
Yeah, things changed for the 64 bit edition. There are a few posts here were we discussed the details.

I agree, I've seen more crashes in v16 than in v15.2.

I can't really put my finger on it, as it happens at seemingly random moments, but definitely less stable than 15.2


- Automated Project transfer to .eapx file => 35 minutes
I am not convinced that a transfer to .eapx is fully/native 64-bit. This is also the way I read (between the lines) Takeshi's replies.
Definitely true, says so in the log file:

| Target
|    Connection:        Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\temp\Output\Backups\LogFile\EA_Export.eapx;Persist Security Info=False;LazyLoad=1;DBType=8;
|    DBMS:              ACCESS2007

I guess this is one of the reasons they went to SQLite as the default file format in v16.
