As Nizam said, this was fixed in the TOGAF add-in a few years ago. Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest versions of both Zachman Framework and TOGAF.

When opening the SysML sample project, I get "An error has occurred: The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file ...  It is already opened exclusively by another user or you need permission to view its data."

First, don't install the SysML add-in. SysML is built-in to Enterprise Architect (11 or higher i think) and is unlocked when the appropriate license is entered. The MDG Technology for SysML add-in is deprecated and is only for SysML 1.0. We don't recommend using this unless you have legacy models which require this specific version.

The actual error message is because the add-in is trying to open the Example EAP model from within the Program Files directory. EA can't open from there because normal user accounts only have read access to this location in modern versions of Windows. To open the file, it needs to be copied to another directory where you do have read/write access and then open directly from there.

You can find other SysML examples in the EA Example model (Start > Help > Help > Open Example Model. Browse to: Example Model.Systems Engineering.SysML Example)

When you update your Zachman and TOGAF add-ins, this JET error should also be fixed as the latest versions of these add-ins should copy the example model into APPDATA before opening.

Our team are looking into the error. Thanks for pointing it out.
[Update: Should be fixed now.]

Also I would be able to search for latest entries of a certain person, without specifying a subject. Is that possible?

If you open the profile page for a user (click on their name), there should be a link that says "Show Posts".

Are you referring to the search facility for our website? If so, the "User Guide" tab of the search results should point to pages in our online html user guide. The "Website" tab may link to anything on our website, which includes both html pages and PDFs.

What term are you searching for? Look carefully through the result list. Are they all PDFs or are you also getting links to html pages?

Hi Bruce,

Can you provide the contents of your SQL Search definition?

No, it's not currently possible to have nested script groups.

The reason you can't find any documentation for that is because it's not supported. The Keystore Service can only reference a single key store. Using the Keystore Manager you can create additional file-based key stores, but these can only be referenced by users by pointing directly to the sskeys.dat file via a shared network folder.

LoadLinkedDocument is a method of class EA.Element, not EA.Package. However each Package has a corresponding Element class. You just need to reference it via the Package.Element attribute.

myDoc = myPackage.Element.LoadLinkedDocument("d:\Profiles\bsingleton\AppData\Local\Temp\82600.tmp")

@qwerty: It's documented on the Element Class, which is linked at the bottom of the help page you referenced.

Under 64-bit operating systems, the SSJavaCOM.dll file will need to be copied into C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

In a bit of confusing Microsoft logic under 64-bit versions of Windows, the "System32" directory is for 64-bit applications, and "SysWOW64" is for 32-bit applications.

Collection.GetAt() takes an index -- not an ID.

Can you please confirm that your project has more than 32,767 root nodes?

Uffe is correct here. GetAt() takes an index, not an ID. If you want to get a specific package by it's ID, use Repository.GetPackageByID( long ).

What qwerty means is that you need to call tdo.Update() in your code to commit your changes.

Hi All,

This is a confirmed issue which is being investigated by our development team. Unfortunately the JavaScript engine used by EA currently fails to handle inherited methods for COM objects, which is what causes problems when trying to use MSXML objects to read/write xml. For example, appendChild() is not a function of IXMLDomElement, but is actually inherited from IXMLDOMNode.

We hope to fix this in a future build. No word yet regarding in which specific build this will be fixed.
