I.P Table fixed.

Read and write profile designs fixed

When importing eastings and northings they were sometimes getting confused with latitudes and longitudes; leading to rubbish coordinates

Moving the mouse onto a field that was not closed caused a warning message and basically renders the program useless. It now does not display the error.
If you then try to grade the same field a message is displayed saying the field is not closed. The way to fix this at present is to delete the current field. Select the field edges again and then insert a new field. Click the apply button to set the field values (this will be fixed next)


File print preview displayed a blank screen and file print was greyed out. These are now working.

Important - road works

The latest versions have introduced a bug into the IP Table in that the heights were changing when entering and leaving this routine.

Also the write and read profile designs was not working.

Until online version is updated. Install cds2.1 as normal and then go to and save the file cds2.exe into the c:\program files\foresoft\cds2\program directory overwriting the version there. The user name is anonftp and password is foresoft1

When displaying roadworks profiles and sections the data could be displayed once and then subsequently disappeared. Bug found in teh reading of super tables. Reading super table was not always closing down a file storage stream correctly. It then stopped subsequent reads of any files in that storage object.


When left clicking on a string segment the bearing and distance returned was not always correct. For example when doing the Cogo routine - Calculate bearing and Distance. When in distance or bearing fields and left clicking on a string segment

Installation 2.0.31

There was an error installing the crypkey drivers on 64 bit OS. The error was flagged and the installation was rolled back.
Installation now checks for 64 bit OS and only installs crypkey if a not a 64 bit OS. In this case you need to use a hardware lock to run the program

Feature code library.

  • When entering tree symbols the trunk symbol default size was incorrect
  • adding in an invalid 3rd symbol trunk+tree

When entering different units than what is put out. For example entering feet into a database output in meters. Some of the cogo routines were displaying the incorrect value. If doing a P command or picking a string segment - the distance in output units was displayed rather then the value in input units.

Displaying a string or bearing the text was right on the line when exporting to a dwg. It has now been moved off the line.

CDS + CDS Premium

Copying and pasting data from the legacy Premium version. Linetypes in layers was not coming across. Now fixed.


The Attribute and Tag character were coming up as default values and not being stored. Now fixed.


Code library table now has a "delete" button. This removes the code library from the drop down list and deletes the file from the computer. An are you sure message box is there to verify the operation. Previously you needed to delete the code library file from the hard drive using windows explorer.

Color in Code Library Table. It was not being redrawn straight away; so it looked as if it was not working.


Strings Change. Left mouse click was not selecting the appropriate string. Now fixed. Work around was to select folder and string from drop down combo box's or to right click on the string.
