QuickTip: Strange Problems in Workstation?  

If you have experience strange exception errors or odd behaviour with Huntron Workstation after upgrading a PC.  The issue may be that your Windows numerical and date configurations are in conflict with Workstations database setup.  The main culprits are decimals as commas rather than periods.  Date/Time Formats confuse the database Component Scans.

Check your Windows “Region and Language” accessed through the control panel.  The easiest method to set a compatible format is to select “English (United States)” for the drop down menu at the top.  However, in reality you may need to set the date/time and numeric formats.
