Troubleshooting: How can I use a custom work function calculator?

Users may create a custom work function calculator object that determines how work functions are calculated. In Designer, a calculator object is used to render a Replace work function for a GU that contains a CU with an Install work function and a CU with a remove work function of any type (Remove, Retire, Abandon, etc).

Once the calculator object is created, the user must set the appropriate Registry key to use the object (refer to the ArcFM Solution Resource Center for information about creating a custom calculator object).

  1. In the Registry, browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Miner and Miner\Designer8\Work Function
  2. In the Work Function folder, right-click the item called Calculator Object and select Modify.
  3. In the Value Data field, enter the Programmatic ID (ProgID) of the calculator object (e.g., mmDesktop.MMWorkFunctionCalcObject).
  4. Click OK.
