Positioning Application: Can user actions / remote command files with .act / .ucd file extensions be used instead of .cmd file types, and vice versa?
PosApp (SimGEN) v2.80 or earlier
PosApp (SimGEN / SimREPLAYplus / SimREPLAY) v2-81 or later
The simple answer is "Yes".
The file content format has not changed
File extensions were changed from SimGEN v2-81 to improve scenario sharing via email
" extension causes firewall filters to strip such files
for User Actions files
From SimGEN v2.81 file selection automatically recognises both types
Before SimGEN v2.81 simply change "
" to "
" before selecting it in the scenario
for remote data files (menu [Options-->Remote Command Settings]).
SimGEN uses a normal Windows 'browse' control to select files
Change the file type filter to select files with an extension that do not match the automatic default
Using an .act file with an old software version 'might' involve incompatible commands
Even though file format has not changed new software versions will introduce new features
Earlier software versions will not recognise new commands
Do not confuse
files that are selected via menu [Options-->Remote Command Settings] with 'User Commands" files in the scenaro tree
Please refer to the user manual,
