  • Help with DMIS code to PC-DMIS convertion

    Hello,

    I am running PC-DMIS 2014.1 and I have a program written in LK Camio Software.

    When I am trying to import DMIS code to PC-DMIS my soft crashes all the time:

    I already know that PC-DMIS cannot import DMIS code perfectly, and a lot of gurus advise to re-write the program. But I will have plenty of programs written in LK Camio, so it might save me some time if I need only to check and adjust them if necessary instead of re-writing.

    Can please someone convert a program for me so at least I can understand does it worth all this struglings with converting or not?

    Would much appreciate assistance

    This is the best advice for converting programs from any DMIS output to the DEMON. I've tried several times converting GeoMeasure and it took a lot more time to convert it than what I would have spent to re-write it.

    IMHO a real PITA to do.

      ive run lk-dmis and camio many years, now running pc-dmis . they do seem compatible , but they are not just due to small verbiage changes.
      i have done the simple copy from one and paste to the other thinking i will just fix it at the points of error . didn't work

        Language translations are a PITA and require a lot of time and effort.

        I recommend making some coffee and re-writing the code.

          It also depends on the program. If you have hundreds of points for example, it might be worth importing and then copying the points into a new program. I've had success with importing DMIS from Virtual DMIS into PC-DMIS. You need carefully analyze what's going on so see how it converts commands. If you aren't very fluent in "reading" a PC-DMIS program and finding syntax or logic errors, it probably isn't safe to just import it.
