Release Note 2016

MIKE INFO

Introduction

Welcome to MIKE INFO Release 2016. In this Release Note, you will find information about new features of MIKE INFO, and what you need to know in order to install and get started with Release 2016.

MIKE INFO is a new member of the MIKE product family introduced with Release 2016. It is a comprehensive and flexible data management and data integration product focused on making temporal and spatial data sets available for a variety of purposes. MIKE INFO is a product consolidation of software tools developed and applied in projects over the past 6-7 years. Hence, although MIKE INFO is a new member of the MIKE product family it builds on proven software, which already serve a large number of clients worldwide. With the 2016 release we are now pleased to offer MIKE INFO as a standardized MIKE software product.

* Fully supported operating systems are systems that have been tested in accordance with MIKE's Quality Assurance procedures and where warranty and software maintenance agreement conditions apply.

** Non-supported but partially tested operating systems are systems, which are not officially supported by the MIKE software products. These operating systems have only undergone very limited testing for the purpose of MIKE software, but the software and key features are likely to work. Installation of MIKE software on a non-supported operating system is done so at the user's own risk. The MIKE software warranty and software maintenance agreement conditions do not apply for unsupported operating systems and DHI is under no obligation to provide assistance or troubleshooting for cases where the software is being used on a non-supported operating system.

Please note that single user installations are not allowed on server operating systems. Also, when running a fully supported operating system as a 'guest operating system' on a virtualisation platform, it is automatically downgraded to a non-supported operating system under the conditions provided above.

MIKE INFO installed as a local licence does not require a licence.

To use MIKE Zero in licenced mode, please follow these steps:

  1. You can retrieve the MIKE software licence file (DhiLicense.dat) via the Internet. This requires a working Internet connection and a valid e-mail address. The licence file can be retrieved in two ways:
    • During installation of the MIKE software
    • After installation of the MIKE software, by launching the DHI License Updater through the Windows Start menu
  2. To retrieve your licence file during installation of MIKE software, select ‘Local’ when prompted to ‘Select license type’. In the following dialogue box, select ‘Internet’. At the end of the installation process, you will be prompted to insert your DHI dongle. Insert the dongle and follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. To update your licence file using the License Updater, simply launch the DHI License Updater and follow the on-screen instructions. On Windows 8, search for DHI License Updater.
  4. Alternatively, the licence file can simply be copied to the \Program files\DHI\2016\License or Program files(x86)\DHI\2016\License directory.
  5. After completed installation, you should ensure that your hardware key is attached to the system.

New features

^ top

Every new release of MIKE INFO consists of new modules, new features or corrections to problems or significant inconsistencies discovered in previous releases. Please find short descriptions of the most significant news in Release 2016 below.

Module/type

New feature

MIKE INFO

This release of MIKE INFO brings the first version of support for SQLite. MIKE INFO, if based on local database on your computer (PostgreSQL or SQLite) does not require a license as opposed to running the database on a remote server. This also applies for the version of MIKE WORKBENCH that is included with MIKE INFO, giving you the capability to manage timeseries, GIS, spreadsheets, custom scripts, and other data without requiring a license. SQLite is a self-contained, serverless database engine. This release of MIKE INFO Free is a first version which does not include radar support, which is expected along with further improvements in the next release

A descrption of MIKE INFO is available on www.mikepoweredbydhi.com

MIKE Workbench
Support for code completion has been added to the Script Manager. This feature suggests method names, properties, and enumerations to the user while code is written.
