Important OS Information for InterForm400
2018 versions require OS400 V6R1 or higher, where the previous versions could be installed on V5R4 or higher. Also a new prerequisite is, that the Auto_Form subsystem must be running in order to use both the PDFCONCAT option, and the support for new additional color image formats.
Please notice, that the implementation of PDFCONCAT does not support variables for the path and file name in both the PDF file naming definitions as in the email finish definitions.
Important Support Information !
Patch (PTF) support is only available for current version of InterForm400 and two years previous versions.
For example, if the current version is 2018.M02 then patch (PTF) support is available for 2016.M01 to 2018.M02.
When 2019.M01 is released next year this will be 2017.M01 to 2019.M99.
If you are running older versions of InterForm please update ASAP to ensure you can get patches (PTFs) if required.
Important Information about Java 1.8
Java (JRE) 1.8 has been released, but unfortunately we have found, that neither InterFormNG nor the InterForm400 designer runs under Java 1.8. So if you want to run InterFormNG or the InterForm400 Designer while Java 1.8 is installed, then you need also to have an earlier Java version installed (e.g. Java 1.7). If you have multiple Java versions installed you will need to force InterFormNG and the InterForm400 designer to use a specific version.
Workaround for the InterForm400 Designer
Here you need to create a new bat file. In this bat file we set an environment variable and then start the designer, so as a preliminary workaround you will need to run the bat file when you want to start the designer. The bat file should have these 2 lines as the contents:
set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jre7
"C:\Program Files\InterForm\InterForm Design\Design.exe"
You need to change the first path above to the path of your Java installation.
(If you are running ArtForm400 you need also to change the path to the designer).
