The Midas.dll error can occur when RockWorks20xx is launched. It is caused by the midas.dll file not being properly registered. To correct that follow the steps below. Close RockWorks. Open up a command prompt by selecting the windows button + R at the same time. Type cmd into the Run window like the screenshot below which will bring up the command prompt window. On the first line after C:\Users\Username type (or copy and paste) in: cd "c:\program files\rockware\rockworks20\" and hit Enter. That should bring up a second command line starting with c:\Program Files\Rockware\Rockworks20\ and after that type (or copy and paste) in: regsvr32 midas.dll and hit Enter. A window should then pop up saying: DllRegisterServer in midas.dll succeeded. Below is a screenshot of what this should roughly look like. If the error persists, users have found that running a registry cleaner solves the problem, presumably by removing conflicting references to the DLL. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc
A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. And a new video! The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. Video A new button titled "2D & 3D Embellishments" has been added to the "What's New in RockWorks 2020" index. Clicking on this button will display a new video that describes some additional new features within RockWorks 2020.(https://www.screencast.com/t/16pyJx9BJp). New Features A new tab option titled "Lith/Strat Filter" has been added to the following menus: I-Data | Histogram I-Data | Statistics P-Data | Histogram P-Data | Statistics T-Data | Histogram T-Data | Statistics Reports generated by programs that use the new Lith/Strat Filter option now include summaries of the Lith/Strat Filter settings. Users can now specify the number of sides in RockPlot cylindrical entities (cylinder, cones, disk, etc.) in the Preferences dialog on the RockPlot tab. Fewer sides will make drawing faster and exports smaller. The default setting is 12 with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 24. Changes to this value will affect already created diagrams. The Surface Profile options for sections and profiles now provides for two surfaces (e.g. ground surface and water table). The vertical title position for section and profile annotation can now be manually specified. This is useful when creating multiple sections and profiles in which the title position must be consistent. An option for smoothing the grids has been added to the T-Data | Multiple Solids (TimeMachine) program menu. Added an ability to list the files/entries in the Project Manager. The report labeling options within the Borehole Operations | I-Data | Volumetrics (IDataVolume) and Borehole Operations | T-Data | Volumetrics (TDataVolume) programs now include options for independently specifying the decimals places for the area, g-value, length, mass, and volume results. A new option titled “Format for Readability” has been added to the TXT and RFT sub-menus for programs that create reports. If selected, the output is configured for optimal display using a fixed-width font. The Grid Polygon Clipping program now will take multiple polygons from a RockPlot2D file and apply them to the output grid. The Utilities | 3-D | Perimeter/Wall program (Perimeter3D) now includes an option for plotting a "Cage" around the diagram. Lots of changes to the Histogram programs. "Reset Menu Setting to Defaults" was added to the Settings menu in most program windows. This is similar to the Reset in the main Setup menu except that it applies only to the menu that is open. It opens the project default ini file and updates the menu setting to those values. Improvements The "Show Instructions" checkbox that formerly appeared within the sub-menus listed below has been replaced by a small "Show/Hide" +/- button located near the upper-right corner of the sub-dialog. The status of the small +/- buttons (display/show help embedded messages) at the right edge of the following sub-menus is now shared with all other programs: Time Filter , Strat Rules, 2D Log Design, 3D Log Design, Fence Location, Section Location, Profile Location, ProSect Location, and Location Map. In the Playlist you can multi-select items then Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete multiple items at a time. The popup menu that appears when the user right-clicks on the Playlist now includes the Enable All and Disable All options. The number of Playlist items is now shown within the Playlist title. Vertical and diagonal striplog titles within sections and profiles now properly offset the main title. The Solid Voxel Reveal program has been renamed to Solid Reveal and now works with both Isosurfaces and Voxel models. The stand alone Voxel Reveal program now allows users to set the view direction, zoom, vertical exaggeration, background color and other 3D options. The Solid Reveal program now allows the user to activate up to 12 different changes of direction, with or without a bounce. Deletions from the Faults tab will warn the user with a confirmation dialog for both single fault deletes or the Erase Disabled functions. Reminder warnings have been added to the 2D Striplog Section and Stratigraphy Picker menus to avoid using the Hang and Vertical Clipping at the same time. ModOps Solid | Import changed the menu items to ASCII XYZG Import with and without a header. Reworked the imports to handle other delimiters in addition to a space. The RockWorks Graphics | Images | Digitize program has been redesigned. The textual reports produced by the IDataVolume and TDataVolume programs now include the name of the polygon table used for limiting the resource, the density conversion factor, and the stripping ratio type. They have been reformatted for better readability, and the Geologic Resources/Reserves summary has been moved to the bottom of the report to be more consistent with the sequence of filtering. Other reports have also been reformatted for better readability: Borehole Operations: Striplogs | Datasheet - > Borehole Survey, Striplogs | Borehole Survey, P-Data | Create Predictive Model, P-Data | Histograms by Lithology, I-Data | Statistics, T-Data | Statistics, P-Data | Statistics Utilities: Stats | Univariate, Survey | XYZ, Planes | Beta Intersections, Stats | XYZ Analysis ModOps: Grid | Directional | Trend Surface Report, Grid | Statistics | Stats - Single Grid, Grids | Statistics | Stats - Multiple Grids, Volume | Triangulation Volumetrics, Volume | Ore Grid, Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation The ModOps | Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation program now checks to make sure that the surface and the solid models have the same dimensions and issues a meaningful error message if they don’t. You can now import your 2D faults into 3D fault tab (Faults Tab | Import | Fault Table to 3D Faults. On the Fault tab, delete any value in the G-Value field will NULL the field, it will show as a blank, a database NULL value. The frame for importing Faults will now accept a blank value as a null value and not convert it to a '0'. The font dimensions for adding perimeter annotation in Google Earth is no longer shown in scientific notation and the maximum size has been increased to 10,000 meters. The RockPlot2D Annotate Border program now offers the correct options for the type of diagram (maps, sections, diagrams) and has been renamed to Annotate. Bug Fixes The solid modeling Distance filter now works correctly when modeling lithology using either the Lateral Blending or Lateral Extrusion algorithms. The ModOps | Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation program now generates a 3D diagram. Unchecking the Report option will now eliminate the report. The Stratigraphy Picker now reads numbers with thousands separators and plots formations below a depth of 1,000. The Manual option within the CSV export program now works correctly. Planes | Polylines to Planes, azimuths can represent strike or dip. Tab renamed to Directionality. I-Data Volume and T-Data Volume programs no longer generate errors if the Report option is disabled. Utilities - Stats | Ternary Diagram Titles now honor the Peripherals input values. Also applies to the Durov and Stiff diagrams. Fixed DBF import to the Datasheet, plumbing reconnected so import works. Polylines & Images -> Mult. Curved Image Panels, plumbing reconnected so it works. Also Sample file Images_Vertical_Multiple_Curved updated. Polyline & Image -> Single Curved Image Panel, plumbing reconnected so it works. Added an example file to "Polyline & Image -> Single Curved Image Panel". Sections with grid-based surface profiles no longer generate an error if there are duplicate vertex points. Sections through solids no longer generate an error if there are duplicate vertex points. 3D Shape Exports (Stratigraphy, Lithology, Water Levels, Well Construction Fractures, I-Data, T-Data and P-Data) have been moved out of the Ledger Exports due to an incompatibility of the options and purpose. The Shape exports have their own menu items as they did in RW17. Reports that are sent to Text or RTF files now use the designated Manual file name. The Solids to Animation program now scans all included solid models to find one minimum/maximum value set to fit all models in the animation. This prevents the color scheme from changing for each frame. The Solid | Export | ASCII program permits selection of G value decimal places. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15. Contact support at rockware.com for a link to the the latest version.

A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. New Features and Improvements RockWorks can now import 5 meter DEM's. Be aware that they create huge (>1.5M node) grids so plotting will be slow. The processing of 3D animations has been sped up by about 30%.. Changed the memory display colors for 0-25% to white text on a red background. Dates will now be saved in US format MM/DD/YEAR (i.e. 7/22/2020) for Ini, Play list and command script files. Shape file import will now read the Shape file's Projection and Coordinate Reference System (prg file). Date Format and Date Separator in the Datasheet work with 'Date' Type columns and programs that use dates. Bug Fixes Striplogs | 2D Striplog: Plot vertical with elevations for deviated holes now show correct elevations for the corresponding measured depth. Map Overlays - Prefix and Suffix prompts are wider, a consistent 100 pixels. Google Earth functions have been hidden on the Subsite dialog as they use the Project's values and not the Subsite's. Tweaked several 3D Log Design Designer Options to scroll better on a smaller screens. Draped images can now be displayed in RockPlot3D without error. The RockPlot3D export to DXF no longer has a limit on the number of entities. Declustering for Solid Models now more closely matches the user suggested spacing. When defining the labeling options for symbols, the Opaque Background setting is no longer dependent upon the Enclosing Background setting The Solid and Grids Filter now handles nulls in the grids. Double clicking on a file in the WIndow's File Explorer now opens the file even if RockWorks is already running. The Grids To Stratigraphic layers program now runs. Playlists that modify the Datasheet no longer cause a "Cannot Focus a Disabled Window" error. Total Nodes and Grid Area are calculated and shown in Grid Statistics report. 2D Grid Map | Peripherals showing the North Arrow and not showing the pattern key adjusted for Grid math items. Aquifer legend removed from ModOps - Grid | Directional | Flow Path Map We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15.

A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with loads of new features, improvements, and bug fixes. New Features and Improvements The user can draw a rectangle in RockPlot2D, and the select it with a right click to update the project dimensions. (Rectangle Attributes, Location tab, Set Output Dimensions button) A Null replacement value has been added an option to the Grid Model --> Boolean and Solid Model --> Boolean programs. Users can now move the anchor point of Anchor Text in RockPlot2D. Users can load dimensions from an existing subsite (Subsite_Cmd). A quick way to add this command to the Playlist is from the Subsite Dialog (last item in the Subsite drop down list - "Edit Subsites"). From that dialog there is a "RCL" menu item , which has options to "Add to Playlist" and "Export to a RwCmd file". The RockPlot2D Manual Pattern Scaling can now be applied to all diagrams. Map, Section and Profiles are based on the Project Dimensions. Charts use the diagram dimensions. The Float Images in Google Earth now force a rotation so that the images are in the view. Added a vertical scroll bar to the Vertical and Horzontal Axis options for Profiles, Sections and Projected Sections so that all options can be seen and adjusted. Borehole Manager | Import Raster Logs, you can now select multiple files for import. The import is more forgiving when the tiff file is no longer in the original folder. A vertical divider bar (to be moved left/right) has been added to the 2D Log Design window, so that the visible items pane can be expanded. Added scroll bars to the Georeference dialog. LoadDimensions_Cmd and SaveDimensions_Cmd will work from Playlists and scripts. Example: PROJECT DIM_FILE Default_Project_Dimensions.rwDim Bug Fixes Stratigraphy and Lithology Fence diagrams now honor the position setting for Legends. All of the PLSS data input fields in the Borehole Manager trigger saving to the database when edited. Default filename extension for input solids changed to RwMod, was RwGrd. The "Create New Solid Model" option now uses the user specified name. Playlist Load and Save Datasheet behave more as expected. The Inclined Surface option for Solid and Grid(s) Filter is now created correctly. ModOps - Grid | Filters | Polygon Clip was freeing the polystream twice causing a Invalid Pointer. Grid filter tools were missing the color legend option When inserting a new borehole, the "Other Coordinate Projections" data is now posted with the rest of the entered borehole data. The project dimensions could get the number of nodes set to zero and saved when the values were edited such that the Minimum exceeded the Maximum. The check on the values is now being done before saving. When scanning boreholes from the Subsite dialog, the Subsite dialog is now being updated, not the Dimensions tab in RockWorks. Also the Dimensions tab is updated when Scan Boreholes is called from the Search Dialog. Hydrology and Borehole Operations - Aquifers: Hydrograph tools (Hydrograph, Hydrograph map and Hydrograph billbords) work. Graphics - Images | Geo-reference - 3D Display default was changed to Float instead of Drape. Graphics - 2D Tools | Export | ReportWorks: will now prompt to save on close. The Solid and Grid(s) Filter now uses the correct surface type instead of defaulting to grid surfaces. The Solid and Grid(s) Filter no longer causes an Access Violation when grid surfaces are selected. Google Earth programs that output disks, tubes, centered images and text were not calculating sizes correctly. Re-projecting just the Z values now works. RockPlot2D previews are now saved when the Rw2D files are saved whether the diagram is displayed or not. Fixed vertical divider bar in the Application Search dialog. A RW15 input grid model is converted only once when both a 2D map and 3D diagram output are requested via the Grid | Display program.
