Problem with Webware file comparison [WebWare Server]

We currently experience the following issue when making file comparisons within Webware.

When executing a historical program comparison on a file the following result is generated:image

On the left hand side is the comparison as made by Webware. The robtarget declaration for pPlacedTrailer was cut of and the remainder was assigned a new line number.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

On the right hand side the same comparison was made with SourceSafe as installed on the Webware server. The comparison was made between the same program versions as made on Webware. As can be seen the Robtarget pPlacedTrailer was not cut off.

Since webware created a new line number, all following line numbers are incremented by one and program differences are highlighted on the incorrect lines of code. E.g. Line 26.

We are using Webware 4.7 and SourceSafe 2005

Is Webware 4.7 compatible with SourceSafe 2005? Are there any settings (Registry or otherwise) we can modify to correct this problem?


  • Will upgrading to Webware 4.9 resolve this problem?
  • hello

    I don't think that this problem is related to Visual Source safe but the line is too long in RAPID which cause problem in the comparison done by webware.


    this problem was never reported and is not corrected in WW4.9


  • Any solution for this problem?

  • not for now

    you should open a PDD


  • How do I open a PDD?
  • Hi

    If not you ask your ABB local contact to report a Defect in the PDD database (Product Defect Database) for a problem in Webware


    Then they will be be discussion if there is a fix or not , if there is a new release
