FloWorks 2017.1.2 and 2017.0.5 Available (update: Jun 27)

Update June 27, 2017: Upgrade versions FloWorks 17.1.2 and FloWorks 17.0.5 are now available.

These releases resolve an incompatibility that may result in errors on starting FlexSim when you install FloWorks in combination with certain other modules. If you want to use the (beta version of) the Emulation module, for example, you should upgrade FloWorks to this latest version. There are no functional changes.

If you are using the LTS version (17.0.5) of FlexSim you should upgrade to FloWorks 17.0.5.
Download FloWorks 17.1.2 if you are using FlexSim 2017 Update 1 (FlexSim 17.1.2).

Both versions can be found in the Downloads section of your FlexSim account on the 3rd party modules tab. Bugs may be reported to [email protected].
