Figure 5-5 The Driver Configuration Wizard
In Designer 3.5, the Driver Configuration Wizard provides more information than previous milestone releases, including the following:
The engine version that you are importing into. This information is taken from the current project. You control the version number.
A descriptive name of the driver configuration (no longer just the filename).
The version of the configuration as a single (undelimited) version number.
The minimum required engine version for this configuration to run.
The full filename of the selected list item. This name is below the list. It is displayed there for transparency.
A check box that indicates possible unrecommended or incompatible configuration files.
Figure 5-6 A Deselected Show All Check Box
By default, thecheck box is deselected if unrecommended or possibly incompatible configuration files are available. If all available driver configuration files are recommended and guaranteed compatible, the check box is dimmed and selected, indicating that all available options are displayed.
A deselectedcheck box implies the following:
Additional driver configuration files are available but they are not recommended.
The additional driver configuration files are probably incompatible with the engine version that you are importing to.
In the following figure, thecheck box is selected.
Figure 5-7 A Selected Check Box in the Wizard
The list now contains many more items than were displayed when the check box was deselected. These new items were previously hidden because the minimum required engine version for them is 3.5. Because the user is importing to 3.5, the configuration might be incompatible.
