Saving result issue: invalid text in CDP line   20 February 2018, 23:27

Hi

I'm using V. 2.0.8 licensed. After scanning some devices i want to save the result. An error message appears saying something about "... is not valid text", see attachment.

The result file fails at this point:
<port>
      <guid>{32A38E01-496B-4D07-B249-FD3ABB65565C}</guid>
      <id>24</id>

        </vlan>
      </vlans>

It looks like there are either non-printable characters present in the CDP string or the string is UTF8-encoded. Please download the latest update that adds UTF8 support and fixes the issue.
