i have made a DataPlugin for Excel-files with the DataPlugin-Assistant and saved it. Now i want to use this DataPlugin for excel files on another PC. I have imported the DataPlugin on the other PC and aktivated it, but always when i want to open an excel file with diadem (e.g. via drag&drop to data portal) on this PC the DataPlugin-Assistant Dialog opens, even so i actually have my DataPlugin for excel files?!
Why opens the DataPlugin-Assistant Dialog instead of importing the excel file as konfigured in my DataPluign?!
DIAdem uses the following command to open a file:
Call DataFileLoad( "C:\...\....xls" ,"DataPlugin_XY","").
If you don't want to use the DataPlugin_XY you have to use another name.
DIAdem uses the priority list of the Datafinder for finding a DataPlugin.
You can edit this list using the DataFinder settings. On the tab file extensions you can select the *.xls extension and edit the priorities of the different DataPlugins.
can you see the DataPlugin in the DataPlugin manager of the other PCs DIAdem (Settings>>Extensions>>DataPlugins...)?
In case yes, please try right click on the file in DIAdem NAVIGATOR and choose "Open With..." - does this work?
Do you drag6drop from NAVIGATO or from Explorer?
