Help Desk Ticket:


Resource Management

Problem Description

When a County Administrator attempts to end-date a
Staff Person, the following error displays: "Staff Person:WndMessage"

Additionally, the County Administrator may receive a Host 00002 message which includes the following text: "< BR032R1604-UPDATE NOT ALLOWED-STAFF PERS. UNIT AUTHOR(S) STILL ATTACHED >"

A related symptom is that the application intermittently hangs when saving to database for either creating or ending a Logon ID.

The application was modified to properly end-date the associated Unit Authorities and Logon ID when a Staff Person is end dated. The two error messages will no longer display.


Court Management

Problem Description

Workstations using high screen resolutions and running Windows 7 may receive Application error 29956 when creating JV-100 or JV-110 petition documents. .

Coding and template changes were made to allow workstations using high screen resolutions to generate JV-100 OR JV-110 petition documents.

Internal Testing (PTS) Issues:



Problem - When running Client Services in Windows 7, an unexpected warning message was displayed when opening a Client notebook which has Safety Alert information filled in.

CWS/CMS Users please note:

  • It is strongly recommended that the user log off the application each night to insure that they are working with the latest version of the application.
  • The release will be delivered to the workstation when the user logs on and does not require any further action to be taken. The user is not required to restart their workstation.
  • It is recommended that the install of Interim Release 7.0.2 occur via the office network, as opposed to a remote connection.
  • The following step can be taken to check that the Interim Release has been delivered to the workstation.
    • From the Control Panel in CWS/CMS, click on Help > About. The version will be 7.0.2.
  • Users that are logged onto the system when the release arrives will not be using the new code at their workstation until the next time they log on.
  • Like major releases, Interim Release 7.0.2 will be using a full installation package. This is an intentional departure from the way Interim Releases’ were handled before R.7.0. There is no outage.
