This section describes how to load a GPL strategy and translate the GPL processes in the strategy.

To re-translate all of your GPL processes associated with the NCM:

  1. Start GPL and navigate to the folder containing GPL process source code.
  2. Single-click the network name in the list.
    Note: You may need to use the UP and DWN fields to scroll to the network name if it does not appear in the list.
  3. Select NC-1 (or the appropriate NC where the GPL processes are located).
  4. Select each GPL process (strategy) in the list and click LOAD (Figure 1).
    Figure 1. Selecting GPL Processes

  5. Double-click the hammer tool in the lower-left corner of the vertical toolbar and select the TRAN (translation) field (Figure 2).
    Figure 2. Selecting Translation

  6. Select Standard Defaults (Figure 3) to initiate the GPL translation process.
    Figure 3. Selecting Standard Defaults

    If the GPL translation completed without errors, a message similar to Figure 4 appears. If you receive errors, correct them before proceeding.

    Possible errors from the new VMA definition may be due to any of the following scenarios:

    • Directly mapped points have been deleted
    • CS object point attributes have been deleted
    • CS object attributes moved up or down in the model section sequence
  7. Restart the PMI workstation.
  8. Launch the Metasys application.
  9. Download the NCM.

See Updating the NIE Configuration if the NCM system has been migrated to the Metasys system using NIEs.
