uds_exe table issue
The XML files do indeed require msg in the name:
By default, the ESI tool assigns all new device packages a device ID of 999 in the .ini file. The VBScript is used to identify the next available Device ID (or, if you prefer, Device Type number) once you have moved the package over to the appliance. The script will update the .ini file with the appropriate ID.
but when i did that, the messages did not show up in the gui . I showd me 0 messages.
Thanks for the other info
