Ignore the -force-cursor-sharing option in the DMSCONV utility

When running the DMSCONV utility delivered with ProjectWise V8i (SELECTseries 3) you may notice a new option called “-force-cursor-sharing”. This switch was added during the ProjectWise V8i (SELECTseries 3) development cycle, and it was intended to address a performance issue related to Oracle datasources. A better solution was discovered and implemented prior to release which negated the need for this switch, however the switch was not able to be removed before the software was released.

 

If you see this option, or any documentation about it, please disregard it, as it is not needed for anything.
