We are currently replacing our paging server and upgrading from version 6 to 7 PageGate. When I put the new server in place, our Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system running on OpenVMS writes files to an NFS share, but with the Hidden Attribute. Get Ascii doesn’t see the files marked as hidden and doesn’t process them. When I remove the Hidden Attribute the files process correctly.

Is there a way to allow Get Ascii to see hidden files?

There is, though there are a few hoops you'll need to jump through to get it to work. Here's what you'll want to do:

First, there's an update to the GetAscii module we'll need to apply:

1) Download the updated executable:
http://www.notepage.net/download/dev/pggascii.exe

2) Open the PG Admin.

3) Expand the Interfaces section, right click on GetAscii and left click on Stop.

4) Copy the file you downloaded in step 1 in to the PageGate program directory.
4a) When prompted, you do want to overwrite the file.


Next, we'll need to create a registry entry:

1) In Windows, run regedit with elevated permission ("Run as Administrator").

2) Browse to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Wow6432Node - NotePage - PageGate

3) Create a new "String Value"

4) Name the string value: GetAscii_Unhide

5) Set the value data to: True

6) Close regedit.

Lastly, we'll need to cycle the PageGate services:

1) Open the Services list in Windows.

2) Find the PageGate service, right click on it and left click on "Stop".

3) Once the PageGate services stop, simply right click on the PageGate service again and left click on Start.
