As of DBDOC 10.5.1, new support has been added for building in 800xA graphics extracted using tools provided by Assyst. This support is for PG2 graphics; to build your VB graphics into your DBDOC project, please see Making a backup of 800xA AFW files.
The usage of the Assyst Tools Controller is detailed below; if you have any issues with the functionality or other bugs, or think of a feature or function you wish it had, do not hesitate to contact GMCL.
The first tab allows for licensing the Assyst tools. You should start by running the Info program, which will generate an Info.txt file. After filling in the handful of fields at the top of the file (to the best of your ability), send the Info.txt file to GMCL. GMCL will send back a license file for the Assyst tools, which you should place in the Info directory (opened by the corresponding button).
Once you've licensed and set up the PG2 extraction utility, you can run it from this tab.
You can also schedule a task from here, or delete it if you want to schedule a different one. This uses the task name "AssystPG2Extraction". If you'd rather set your own task, you will need to append the argument "-mode=auto", otherwise the PG2 extraction utility will open on schedule but merely wait for a user to press the Start button.
From this tab, you can also view the Readme, open the base directory containing both "AssystBin" (the programs) and "Graphics" (where the "AssystInfo" and "AssystSnapshot" folders with the extracted graphics are located), or automatically zip up the extracted graphics (which will create a .7z file in the base directory).
On the Log tab you can check the current session's log for explanations if anything has gone wrong, or open the full log file to view previous errors or debug messages. By default, this log is located in C:\DBDOC\AssystBin\launcher.log. This does not contain any errors encountered by the Assyst tools themselves.
If the above instructions do not work for you, please contact GMCL.
