Time stamp jumps back to an earlier point in time

Time stamp jumps back to an earlier point in time

Applies to: Docklight Scripting V2.0.5 and Docklight Tap Pro / Tap 485, Article ID: dl_prb037

When using Docklight Scripting V2.0.5 and monitoring certain communication patterns, the following problem may occur: The date/time stamp of a second data packet following immediately after a first packet jumps back to an earlier time, e.g. 50 or 100 milliseconds earlier. This is caused by a bug in a function that takes care that the “Tap Pro” measurement is always loosely related to the actual Windows time, and does not slowly drift away from Windows time in long-term measurements, e.g. 24 hours measurements.

The bug has been corrected in V2.1 or higher software versions, which are available for download below.
NOTE: From Docklight V2.1 release versions, you can also use Docklight for “Tap Pro” applications, not only Docklight Scripting.
