On the Vsig download site, the H8000 series database is an *.sbffile. Vsig does not seem to recognize this.Vsig does recognize the H7600 database which is sigdbase.sbs
What do I need to do to load the H8000 database file while usingVsig standalone?
Try to rename the .sbf extension into .sbs. Works ok here.Alternatively you can download a database from the unit itself.
all the bestI
thanks for the reply.
i changed the H8000 database file to .sbs, Vsig recognized it and alsoupdated the
Preferences/User setup to H8000 family.
when you search for the database to load in Vsig, pay attention to the File Type field in the window opened by Vsig. It offers 3 choices:
Binary Files (*.sbs) > This won't obviously look for .sbf filesText Files (*.sbf) > This WILL load an .sbf file!All Files (*.) > will show every type of file in a directory.
It's just the way Windows and Vsig may look at different type of files.
Tricky, but works!
