TWB Run Configuration System Properties don't work?

Hi,

I'm trying to change the System Properties for a Run Configuration in Eclipse with the TWB (via Run Configurations -> System Properties -> Cablecard for example). I change the ocap.cablecard.manufacturer value from the default 0x300 to something else but it doesn't seem to change anything at runtime. The value, which I believe is only stored in ocap-ri\ricommon\resources\GpnvsDatabaseFile.xml (correct me if i'm wrong) remains unchanged at runtime and querying the value pulls up whatever unchanged value from this file. If I change it manually in the file, I do see the change reflected at runtime when I query the value. Changing other system properties through TWB have the same issue. Is this a feature that is not yet implemented in TWB although the UI is there or am I just doing something wrong?

Thanks

As indicated in the release notes (http://ri.opencable.com/sdk/installers/eclipse.3.4.2/Rel4/TWB_ReleaseNot...) on page 8, section 1.6 Important Issues,

"3. Many of the user interface tabs in the OCAP Simulation launch configuration are place-holders for future
functionality. These include the “Simulation”, and “System Properties” tabs."

As a work around, you can alter the value in the GpnvsDatabaseFile.xml by hand and the RI will use it.
