Release Notes

NASA Space Shuttle TV Schedule Release v1.4.119.1

Installation Program - NASA Space Shuttle TV Schedule

Lastest Install Program

Version 1.4.119.1 has been changed to recognize changes for the STS-119 mission schedule.
The Excel spreadsheet published by NASA has changes for the STS-119 mission has changes from prior Space Shuttle missions. This release has the following format changes:
  • Published Date. The published date format, needed to capture the year of the launch, changed from the expected 03/09/09 to 3/9/09. Found in rev 0 of the schedule.
  • Missing Mission Elapsed Time (MET) Column Heading. The MET column heading is not in rev 0 and a of the STS-119 mission schedule. Since MET has been in column 6 of the NASA schedule, this is not an issue.

This release also has an option to select a mission to the International Space Station or a standalone mission, such as STS-125 which services the Hubble Space Telescope, to determine where events occur in the schedule.

The formatting of the version numbers v1.2.3.4 has been changed. Changes due to changes in the Excel format published by NASA will be reflected in the second number, instead of the fourth number. The third number will reflect the mission number of the Space Shuttle if mission changes warrant a change due to the format of the schedule file.

Version 1.0.1.3

Version 1.0.1.3 has been fixed to recognize changes for STS-126 Rev 0 schedule.

Version 1.0.1.0

Version 1.0.1.0 is now compatible with Microsoft Vista.

NASA's mission schedules are published in Microsoft Office 2000 format. The program successfully reads Microsoft Office 2000 Excel files. My concerns are the ability of the program to transfer the Space Shuttle schedule to those using Microsoft Office other than 2007.

Office 2007

I developed and tested the installation program with Microsoft Office 2007.

Office 2003

I currently do not have a system where I can test the application with Microsoft Office 2003. I am looking for an open-source volunteer to help test and make changes to the program to make it compatible with Office 2003.

Office 2000

From what I have researched on Microsoft Office 2000 and Primary Interop Assemblies, developing applications using PIA for Office 2000 is painful. It involves generating a PIA. I am looking for someone to help me make sure that the program can transfer the schedule to Microsoft Outlook 2000.

Corporations - Follow Your Corporate Policy

Individuals installing the NASA Space Shuttle Schedule program should review their corporate policy to make sure this program is compliant with their corporate policy. I am not responsible for employees violating corporate policy.

Call to Open Source Developers
I am looking for software developers to help me make the program accessible to past versions of Microsoft Office. If you share the same love of manned spaceflight and are willing to work without salary or compensation, other than glory and recognition, then contact me. Resumes submitted for employment for compensation will be rejected.

For those software developers volunteering without compensation, other than fame and glory, contact me at Developer Volunteer (NASA Space Shuttle Scheule

I developed the NASA Space Shuttle Mission Schedule to Outlook Calendar to make it easy for me to have the mission schedule in my calendar and PocketPC. I thought I would share the program with others that share an interest in manned spaceflight.
