Greetings Raith User Community:
If you are a new user on the system since RAITH Group XIV, please check
to see if you can access your logins on both the RAITH SEM AND the RAITH
Working with RAITH USA Application support specialist, Kevin Burcham, we
were able to correct the problem we encountered where we would add your
login to the user database but it would not appear in the login screens
user name pull down. Several users in fact were working in rather odd
truncations of their user name.
The problem was identified to be within a file used to maintain the user
names and login securely, escsecure.dll, and it had a fixed maximum
string length of 512 characters. When we hit the 65th users we started
having problems with the login pull down menu. Raith has increased the
maximum length to 5120 characters and this seems to have taken care of
All users should take a look at their directories upon their next login
on the system and immediately inform me if you see any problems or changes.
FYI: For many of the experienced users I have also increased your file
permissions and functionality from Novice to Expert which will allow you
to navigate further through the PC files systems and to save more
changes to your users files.
Thank you for your support!
