I have a small suggestion about software. May you make hwdb database open in Share mode like mdb database in WS 4.2 ? I want to use it with multi users. It may be an option when open a hwdb database. User can choose open hwdb database in Exclusive or Share mode.
At this point it is not possible as the HWDB is a relational database that can opened by one user at a time. The MDB files in 4.2 were the same way unless you know something I do not. :)
Thanks for the question.
thanks for reply. When I use WS 4.2 (mdb database) I can open this database via Microsoft Access at a time. It helps me check and edit if I want, don't need to exit WS. Example: In mdb database, if 2 or more components have a few same signatures of pins, I often use Microsoft Access to copy them. Its fast and better than scan again by WS. With hwdb database in WS4.3, I use VistaDB to open it but its opened in Exclusive mode (default mode - I think). so I cant open it with multi connection. I think if new WS4.3 can allow user open hwdb in Share mode is better. Or an option allows user choose Open mode ( Exclusive or share mode)
The main reason for not having a share mode is that will affect the access speed to the database. However, we will consider your request for the future.
