Known Issues with NetLinx Studio - Version 4.4
When queuing up a large number of files to transfer and during the transfer process a device/master times out on communication with NetLinx Studio, the transfer of that file will not be complete. Subsequent files after that may start to error on transfers because NetLinx Studio has not caught up with the transfer error messages, causing partially transmitted files to the devices.
