With a certain registration sequence, RF=0 results in a data event never being triggered.
If a process object is only setup with EV=e and then EV=d or EV=ed is set, the data event is not triggered until the next cyclic read. When
RF=0, no cyclic read is triggered. Now a read is always started after a change to the "ed" events.

When the PVI manager is active, a dongle can only be read once
Once the PVI manager is started, the dongle can only be read one more time. If you call BrSecChk.exe again, the dongle can no longer be
found. The problem only occurs with the LPT1 dongle holder on the APC.
A USB dongle can be read multiple times even when the PVI manager is running.

With Windows 2000, CF can only be created once without administrator rights
If a CF is created in Windows 2000 without administrator rights, on some PCs this process can't be repeated. During the second attempt no CF
is displayed, so the process no longer works.
The PC must be restarted in order for a second CF to be generated. This problem does not occur when the user has administrator rights.

CF images can't be restored on 64 MB Silicon Systems CF cards
If an image is created from a 64 MB SanDisk or Silicon Systems CF card, the image file can be restored, but the resulting CF card doesn't
work. The respective target system (e.g. PP400) can't be started with this CF card.
This problem only occurs when the image is restored on a 64 MB card from Silicon Systems. If the image is restored on a 64 MB card from
SanDisk, the error doesn't occur.

CD creation: The file "bootrom_pp400.sys" is missing from the output directory
When a CD is created from a PP300/PP400 project, the file "bootrom_pp400.sys" is missing from the created directory. As a result, the CD
that is created cannot be used to setup a CompactFlash card for a PP300/PP400 device.
Workaround:
The file "bootrom_pp400.sys" must be manually copied from the PVI Transfer installation folder to the output directory.

ID#165735 : solved problem, known since V3.0.70.4, solved since V2.6.0.3102


CF creation: Problems (CPU never finishes booting) with AR 2.92 for large HW configurations
When the PVI Transfer Tool is used to create a CF for AR 2.92 (or higher), and the HW configuration is large, the CPU gets stuck in the boot
procedure and never finishes. The reason for this is that the default setting for the SYSTEM partition of the PVI Transfer Tool is too small.
Workaround:
The size of the SYSTEM partition must be increased manually before creating the CF.

CF creation doesn't work if one has read only access to the project directory
When the user only has read only access to the project from which a CF should be created, the CF creation is completed without errors, but
the resulting CF is empty.
The problem occurs, for example, when a user tries to create a CF from a project that is stored on a network (where he or she has read only
rights). The CF is created without errors, but is empty.
