What's New in STAR*NET 11

STAR*NET 11 introduces the following new and enhanced features:

  • License Dialog
    A new licensing dialog has been applied to the program.
    Clear workflows for USB and online licenses are available.
    New access to online training, the helpdesk, and demo requests directly from the license dialog.
  • Floating Licenses
    Non-USB floating licenses have been added to STAR*NET.
    License seats are available to users with access.
    License seats are consumed when the program or converters are opened, and returned when they are closed.
    Floating licenses are only available online.
    License seats may be checked out for up to 4 days, ensuring a license is available offline.
    After the checked out session has expired, the license must be checked in to continue running.
  • Trimble Data Exchange Format (TDEF) Converter
    A new TDEF converter has been created with STAR*NET 11.
    Total station data is converted to M and DV records.
    Level data is converted to L records.
    Users may define stations to summarize turning point measurements within station measurements.
    Standard errors may be imported directly from TDEF files, rather than relying on instrument settings in STAR*NET.
    GNSS measurements may be imported from the GPS Import function.

STAR*NET 11 fixes the following important issues:

  • Leica Captivate DBX converter crashed when backbearing measurements were included in file.
  • .MAPMODE ANGLECALC caused a crash.
  • Sort by Std Residual did not apply to coordinate measurements.
  • Attempting to run converters while in expired mode would appear to crash.
  • DNA/GSI converter would not process a file when a Quick Closure was included.  Warnings added for unsupported data formats.
  • Undo/redo were not available after an adjustment was performed.
  • "Remove input file" button was too close to the "Delete input file" button and has been moved.
  • "Delete input file" button now has more warnings and moves the file to the recycle bin instead of permanently deleting it.
  • Extended linear precision toggle did not apply to level loops.
  • Sideshot detection was not on by default.
