Installing Telelogic DOORS 9.1

If you already have DOORS, the version that you have (i.e. whether it is patched or unpatched) does not affect the way in which DOORS 9.1 is installed. In all cases DOORS 9.1 is installed into a new directory named DOORS 9.1 by default, and after successful installation your current version of DOORS remains on your system.

You cannot install DOORS 9.1 into the same directory as your current DOORS installation. If you try to do this the installation will fail.

For information on installing DOORS 9.1, see the DOORS Installation Guide. This is available in PDF format on the Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions DVD, and on the Support Web Site.

For information on how to obtain a license from Telelogic, and how to install the Telelogic License Server, see the Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions Licensing Guide. A printed version is available along with the Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions DVD. It is also available in PDF format on the Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions DVD, and on the Support Web site.

If you are already running DOORS, the action you need to take depends on the version of DOORS you are running, and whether you have a valid maintenance agreement:

Spelling Checker

There may be some languages supplied with the spelling checker, for example Russian that don't supply alternative text when errors are detected during a spelling check.

When you set up the options for checking spelling in certain languages a Modes panel is displayed on the Options dialog box. In some languages the modes that are available are meaningless. For example, if the selected language is Russian, the modes Je and Jo are displayed.

These issues are a result of limitations in the third party software used by DOORS to provide spelling checker capabilities.

Hidden Text

DOORS doesn't support hidden text. For example, if you copy text including hidden text from Microsoft Word and paste it into a DOORS module, the text that is displayed in the module explorer is different to that displayed in the object.

View Inheritance Settings and Partitions

View inheritance settings aren't preserved correctly when DOORS 8.1 partitions are imported or exported by DOORS 8.0 clients.
