automatically change the measurement strategy based on probing type using MSE

[scenario] Create a measurement routine with adaptive scanning measurement strategies. Open that routine on a cmm without an analog scanning probe, that gives an error message.

What would be handy for shops with multiple cmm types, is to have a way to change (temporarily) the measurement strategy to a type the cmm supports based on its probing type, based on the defaults stored in the measurement strategy editor.

Most of the time, I use adaptive scanning to improve throughput on the cmm's. But there are still cmm's with only TTP modules on them. I use the same measurement routine on several cmm's, but the adaptive scanning makes this difficult since the ttp does not support it.  Each cmm type has its own identifier so that the reporting gives the type of cmm used to verify the product. Thus there is traceability to the type of measurement strategies used to verify product.
