TA-32 : Software releases before r22 cannot work with OS’ above 200

Advisory release date: September 2022

Summary:

The launch of r22 has coincided with OS 200, both of which are major updates to disguise. The OS includes major updates for a host of drivers to support new features, making it necessary to perform firmware updates which due to manufacturer limitations cannot be reversed once applied.

This document outlines a limitation of the OS update that means that software releases before r22 are not compatible with OS’ above 200.

This means that if you build a project in r22, the specified hardware will also have to have its OS above 200 for playback. Once the hardware is updated to support OS 200 and above, there is no option to roll back to a previous OS version.

 

Issue

Software releases before r22 cannot work with OS’ above 200.

There is no option to roll back to a previous OS version if the update to an OS above 200 is made.

 

Affected Hardware/Software

All vx1, vx2, vx4 and vx 4+ hardware using Designer software version r22 onwards.

 

Impact

Software releases before r22 cannot work with OS’ above 200.

There is no option to roll back to a previous OS version if the update to an OS above 200 is made.

 

Workaround

Users working on projects using Designer software versions before r22 should not update the hardware outlined above (all vx1, vx2, vx4 and vx 4+) to an OS above 200.

 

Resolution

There is no resolution to this issue. Once an OS has been updated above 200 it cannot be rolled back.
