Application Changes
EAM 12.5.2 is a maintenance release that includes the 12.5.2.1, 12.5.2.2, and 12.5.2.3 patches and the following enhancements:
Preserving Custom Report Layouts
The following enhancements have been made to custom report layouts:
EAM 12.5.1.1 updates the Request for Quote report template.

EAM 12.5.1.3 updates the Purchase Order Line template

Revisit Role Setup
EAM 12.5.1.1 adds new and updated options to the security roles. Revisit your existing roles to verify that they are set properly.
Registry Date setting
EAM 12.5.1.3 introduces new EAM Registry settings, CustomLangDef and DateFormat.
Note: Special Instructions regarding Date Format – for customers in Spain.
QAD issue # EAMNET-4466 reported that a customer in Spain was having problems with the date formatting. The correct formatting for dates in Spain is DD/MM/YYY. Normally, the system picks up this format from the local client’s Windows settings, but for Spain, this was not happening.
QAD verified that the problem was happening because the .NET Framework was not picking up the correct language settings for Spain. This issue will be permanently fixed in future versions of EAM, when the product starts using the same appshell as QAD Enterprise Edition. Because a permanent fix is months or perhaps over a year away, QAD created a temporary solution so that the problem would be solved as soon as possible. The temporary solution involves two new System Registry settings:
CustomLangDef (Custom Language Defaults?). If this is set to no, which is the default, the system acts as it does today. When releasing this feature, QAD is setting the CustomLangDef to no so that customers who do not have the described issue are not affected at all by these changes. However, if the CustomLangDef is set to yes, then the new DateFormat Registry setting takes effect.
DateFormat (Which Language Defaults). This setting overrides the client’s Windows language defaults for the date format. It only takes effect if the previous Registry setting, CustomLangDef, is set to yes.
For customers in Spain, the DateFormat setting needs to be set to es-ES. Changing this setting needs to be done with a valid Market entry. If this setting is changed to an invalid setting, the system will error out and the CustomLangDef setting will have to be set to no with the Progress Editor.
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd251064.aspx for all current valid Market Property values currently supported by Microsoft.
