Solution - ArcFM 10.2.1 - Autoupdaters ArcFM Current Date and User Name  show as UNREGISTERED PROGRAM!

Version 7

    Behavior

     

    Instead of seeing ArcFM User Name or ArcFM Current Date autoupdaters assigned to a given field, UNREGISTERED PROGRAM! shows up instead.

     

    EXPECTED

    With Minerville sample data and most customer data, fields such as DATECREATED have the AU ArcFM Current Date assigned. CREATIONUSER field would typically have ArcFM User Name AU assigned. The following shows the Field Info tab from ArcFM Properties Manager for the PriOHElectricLineSegment feature class.

    The DATECREATED field is highlighted to show the Field Properties. Note the On Feature Create field property has the ArcFM Current Date AU assigned.

     

     

    The same Feature Class after applying patch 591 to a 10.2.1.575 build. The On Feature Create field property for DATECREATED now shows UNREGISTERED PROGRAM!

     

    Cause

     

     

    Applying patch 590 or higher with ArcFM 10.2.1 build version 575.
