C.02.01 Release – Overview

 

This software represents the initial release of the Agilent Technologies N4019C Bluetooth/WLAN Wireless Test Manager. To see the release notes for the N4019C (includes revision information) go to the Agilent Technologies web site http://www.agilent.com/find/N4019C and select ‘N4019C Release Notes’.

 

Changes

Added complete Bluetooth tests, that do measurement set-up, run and fetch results. The new tests step names are BT Carrier Frequency Drift Test, BT ICFT test, BT DUT Address, BT Maximum Input Level Test, BT Modulation Characteristics Test, BT Multislot Sensitivity Test, BT Output Power Test, BT Power Control Test, BT Singleslot Sensitivity Test, BT EDR BER Floor Performance Test, BT EDR Carrier Freq Mod Accuracy Test, BT EDR Differential Phase Encoding Test, BT EDR Guard Interval Test, BT EDR Maximum Input Level Test, BT EDR Relative TX Power Test, BT EDR Sensitivity Test.

 

For BT and WLAN if CSV results format is selected then more parameters are displayed to the UI and in the results file, to allow more selectivity for plotting results in the data analyzer.

 

Added WLAN tests WLAN Configure DUT to allow user to enter DUT set up parameters via the UI. Also, WLAN TX calibration, IQ calibration and Xtal trim calibration, WLAN Sensitivity Test steps added. WLAN Load AWG Files test step added to allow loading of broadcast packet files from the TestData/Waveforms directory.

 

WLAN DUT Looping Power added to allow looping on TX power; note this is for DUT TX power only.

 

Error reporting has changed for BT with concise messages displayed, and more detailed exception reporting available when debug mode enabled.

 

EndLoop test step changed to include the Looping parameter from a drop down menu. This Looping parameter must match the one chosen in the StartLoop test step.

Installation Issues

 

Uninstalling all software versions

               

If you have test plans and settings in the BT_WLAN_English.mdb database file that you wish to keep, then re-name and re-save this file before starting to uninstall/install the new Wireless Test Manager revision.

To uninstall an older revision run the N4019C_Setup.exe application.         

There is a known issue with Install shield:

                                                                                       http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=q107390

 

                        If errors occur during the uninstall then

·         Launch Add/Remove Programs applet from Control Panel on your machine.

·         Look for the old version of the product and uninstall it.

 Alternatively, uninstall the product via Microsoft's Windows Installer Cleanup utility:

·         Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility from Microsoft.

·         Install the utility on your machine and launch it.

·         Select your old installation from the list of products displayed by the Windows Installer Cleanup utility and click Remove.

It is recommended that all previous revisions

 

The USB security key is not recognized after installation

 

Situation: You try to run Wireless Test Manager(WTM), but WTM prompts you with the message "No security or incorrect security key found." even though the security key is inserted into a USB port; or when you insert the security key into a USB port, the Windows Found New Hardware Wizard appears and wants you to install a device driver for the security key.

 

Solution: This problem is usually caused when the key was in the USB port during the WTM installation. This interferes with the installation of the Rainbow Technologies Security Key files.  Perform the following steps to correct the problem: 

a.       Cancel or exit from any prompts.

b.       Remove the USB security key from the USB port.

c.        Close all applications that are running.

d.       Check to see that the sx32w.dll and sp32w.dll is installed in the Windows System32 directory.  If the file is not present in the System32 directory, copy the sx32w.dll and the sp32w.dll from the Rainbow Technologies directory on the Wireless Test Manager installation CD to the Windows System32 directory on your PC.  

e.       Run the SSD5411-32bit.exe program in the Rainbow Technologies directory on the WTM installation CD to reinstall the drivers.

f.         Insert the Security Key into a USB port on your PC.

g.       The Security Key should be recognized next time you run Wireless Test Manager.   

                               

It is recommended that only one revision of N4019C is installed on your pc at any one time. If multiple versions are installed, and you are developing and building the solution for WLAN measurements, please ensure that the Agilent.N4010.WlanTest.dll paths are correctly referenced within the solution.

 

 

Back-up language files

 

Back-up files were created for the language files located in the directories below the ".../WirelessTestManager/Common/" level in case they are written over when installing an older version of the Wireless Test Manager. The release date of this version of the WTM is appended to the name of these language files.

 

??? <reference number> being displayed in the WTM user interface

  

Situation1: If any N401XA application (VB6 WTM) is installed after an N401xC application (.NET WTM) has been installed, the Agilent WTM framework language files (.lng) will be overwritten by the older language files. This will result in ‘??? <reference number>’ showing up on some WTM user interface objects. This is due to old language files not containing the new messages added in .NET WTM.

 

Solution: Restore the backup language file that was created when the N401xA application was installed.

 

Example: If the N4019A application is installed after the N4019C then a file called 'English09152004.lng' will be created in the default installation directory 'C:\Program Files\Agilent\WirelessTestManager\Common\ExecLocalization'. Delete (or rename) the 'English.lng' file in this directory and rename the 'English09152004.lng' file to 'English.lng'.
