ORG-3560 Failure to define user-defined variable INF Error : Undefined variable: INF is dumped when using the following code.
double inf = -100;
inf=;
  • It's because INF and -INF are reserved as infinity for integral. Fixed in sr1.
ORG-3560 type -a failed to follow type.redirection in 8.6 sr0 Open a Notes window in Origin. By default, the Notes window name is "notes"
type.notes$="notes";

type hi; //outputs to the Notes window
type -a cow; //outputs to Script window. Should output to the Notes window.
ORG-4563 File added by run.addoc() failed to link if in Command window It's because Command Window is an OC dialog. When running script there, no OC compiles can happen. Fixed in sr1.

COM

JIRA Summary Details
ORG-4632 In 8.6sr0, Connect/Launch Origin from COM client, it's always 32 bit Origin though user installs both 32 & 64 bit Origin. The Origin launched from COM Client should be controlled by which Origin was last run as administrator. The computer reads info. from registry to decide which Origin to run and only running Origin as administrator will write info. into registry.
  • If 64 bit Origin was run as admin last, then when launching Origin from COM Client, 64 bit Origin will launched.
  • If 32 bit Origin was run as admin last, then when launching Origin from COM Client, 32 bit Origin will be launched.
