As U10.3 will be the first one which delivers a metadictionary, a lot of people want to have a straight look at it, but:


will return an error:

IDE command line switch /INS is not supported when $SEARCH_RESOURCES = RESOURCES_ONLY

Before we start editing ASN files, it’s much faster to use the “Import XML …” and we enter directly “D:\USYS103\uniface\misc\umeta.xml”.

WARNING: when we use the navigation in the “Open” window, we change the working directory as well. When we use relative paths this will no longer work.

So better exit the IDF after the import is done

Sorry for this bug!

/ins does (should) not exist anymore in Uniface 10 at all.

It has been removed for the documentation, but it seems it has not (completely been removed from the code.

I have created Jira issue UNI-12433 for this.

You indeed need to import this file just like any other Uniface export file.

Old Uniface Codes have after 25 years some “intuitive” reflex
entering “/INS META”  or “/INS SOURCE”

Looks like I was blinded by the “/inst” switch in the helpfile

Command Line Switches

at least it has a very irritating errormessage (what has /INS to do with resources ??)

As I’m a lazy guy, I have not started experimenting with the $SEARCH_RESOURCES alternatives.


Thanks for the Information,
