I'm using RC-WinTrans 9.2.0.5.
I put multiple projects into one workspace.
If I now open this workspace, RC-WinTrans modifies the fsmdb files of all projects, even if I didn't change anything.
As I use a source control system on these files, this is a bad thing.
Is there a way to tell RC-WinTrans not to modify the fsmdb files, if there was no modification to the translations?

TIA
Michael

Hello Michael,
this is true. A database file (.fsmdb) will be modified always.

The only option to avoid this is not to check-out the .fsmdb file from your source control system -- then the database file is read-only and RC-WinTrans cannot change it.

I'm using the source control system git which doesn't have any check-out feature, so this is not possible.

Hello Michael,

it will be fxed with the next (June or July 2014) RC-WinTrans 9.4 service release (next to the current build version 9.4.0.76/April 2014).

Correction (December 2014):
-------------------------------------
It is fixed for RC-WinTrans 10 (February 2015) and for the 9.4 update in February 2015.

To avoid this behavior I have converted our projects into the RWTXLF format.
See also here: http://www.schaudin.com/forum_srv/topic249-what-is-the-disadvantage-to-use-rwtxlf.aspx

It can be easily done:
- NO prj open in RCWT
- Menu: Tools -> Maintenance -> Convert Translation Project

You are right. Thank you for posting this information.
It is only the database (.fsmdb) which is touched when a project is opened (witout editing anything).
Projects using XML data files (.rwtxlf) as data storage are not changed.

We have fixed this "changing database" behaviour for RC-WinTrans 10 (February 2015). It is also be planed to
release an update for RC-WinTrans 9.4 in February 2015.
