Known Problems - 5.0.2

Playlist menu separators on File and Bookmarks menus don't share playlist background color on Windows.

This is due to a bug in the JRE that is included in the Variations client. There is no current plan to provide a workaround.
See the entry in Java Bug Database for more information:

Container title in tabs 2-5 of the Edit Container window is not displayed correctly.

In the edit container window of the cataloging UI, on all tabs except the description tab, there is a line displaying the container title directly beneath the container ID at the top of the pane. This line doesn't use a Unicode font and thus displays incorrectly.

This is planned to be fixed in the next version of Variations.

Quicktime 7.2 causes the Variations client not to start on PowerPC Mac

This is the result of a bad update process for Quicktime 7.2. This can be fixed by downloading the Quicktime 7.2 update from Apple's website ( and rerunning the update.

Quicktime 7.2 causes the Variations client not to stream music on Windows

This problem should not happen with Variations 5.0.2, but will happen with earlier versions of Variations. This can be fixed by editing Variations/JRE/lib/security/java.policy file to look like the following:

    // Allows any thread to stop itself using the java.lang.Thread.stop()

There is no access page for the supplied Mahler Symphony (AGZ3068)

This problem can be fixed by executing the following from /home/dmlserv/ where <library_name> is replaced with the abbreviation of your institution or library:

 bin/ <library_name>_CATALOGING <library_name>/Container/376908 content/access/

Cataloging ID defaults to uppercase in Other System IDs field

When creating a new recording or score, the cataloging ID is inserted into the Other System IDs field in uppercase.
The only way to fix this at the moment is to manually change the value in the Other System IDs field to have the correct case.

  1. Go to the Admin tab in the search window
  2. Enter the cataloging ID in the Edit by ID field and click Edit Record
  3. Click Edit next to Othery System IDs
  4. Highlight the entry that starts with (Variations)
  5. Correct the value so that it is the cataloging ID with correct case
  6. Click Update, then click OK
  7. Click OK to close the Container Edit window

AccessPages have incorrect links to OPAC

There is a bug in the XSLT stylesheet that renders the access pages which can cause the link to the OPAC to be incorrect.
