Broken compatibility with Shimadzu LCMS 8050 after replacing Shimadzu DataReader with IoModule for MRM files Pawel  2020-09-30
 
Hi Skyline Team!

Thanks for your continuous work on the software. Just wanted to make you aware that the most recent update 20.1.9.268 broke the compatibility with Shimadzu LCMS 8050. The following error appears:

"Failed importing results file 'C:\LabSolutions\Data\Chalani\20200929_QC(100x)_021.lcd'.
[ShimadzuReader::getSpectrum] GetMSSpectrumByScan: E_INVALIDARG"

Old version of Skyline still works but I am unable to use Skyline for importing Shimadzu data on any computer on which I updated the software to the above version. Would you mind having a look into this problem?

Regards,
Pawel

Hi Pawel,

Can you upload the failing file? We recently updated our Shimadzu API (at their request) to work with files generated by their latest version of their acquisition software, so hopefully this is something I can fix on our end without another DLL update.

Hi

Attached please find Sky template and two .lcd files which supposedly were collected using very similar method file on Shimadzu LCMS 8050.
Skyline version 20.1.9.234 can import both files
Skyline version 20.1.9.268 can import only one of the files and the following error appears when importing the second file:

"Failed importing results file 'C:\Users\carfp\OneDrive - Queensland University of Technology\Desktop\sky\20200929_QC(100x)_022.lcd'.
[ShimadzuReader::getSpectrum] GetMSSpectrumByScan: E_INVALIDARG"

Thanks Pawel, I found the problem and fixed it. It'll be fixed for the 20.2 release.
