  1. After several weeks, I finally got Visilogic working again. I went through the uninstall / reinstall process with a fine-toothed comb, and this time it took. I haven't tried Version Swapper yet, I'm mostly afraid to. Maybe next month
  2. So I tried out an adapter. It seems to work okay with Win7 on bare metal, but was almost completely incompatible with a virtual machine. I guess I'm going to have to learn to live with a serial port... argh...
  3. It's redrawing 40+ screens that makes me hesitant...
  4. Thanks guys, My sockets are tied up doing real-time communications to a couple of robots, a camera system, and now a motion controller, all on Modbus TCP. The latency of a juggling scheme would be fatal. And I would give my last remaining tooth for the V700 to be available in a V570 form factor. So I guess I'll pick out an adapter and see how far I get. I'll keep you posted on the results. Thanks again! TM
  5. Just read the Wine (Windows Layer for Linux) is introducing WinePak, a flatpak for running windows applications on linux. I wonder if this could be a possiblity? I hate Windows anyhow...
  6. Greeting all! I am about to start a Visilogic project on an existing machine that will force me to surrender my last available ethernet socket, and it is causing me great emotional anguish. I was considering a serial to wifi adapter to allow me to at least keep my precious wireless connectivity, even if it means sacrificing overall communication speed. Has anybody else done this successfully, and if so, what did you use? Thanks! TM
  7. Hello All, So I've now tried to install Visilogic on 3 laptops in total, one running Windows 7 and 2 running Windows 10. I have three versions I am working with, 9.8.65 (latest) and 9.8.0 and 9.7.0 under Swapper. The Windows 7 laptop, after installing according to directions, including ripping Visilogic out completely and a fresh install, I cannot get 9.8.65 or 9.7.0 to work. Both throw the Runtime Error 9 subscript. Strangely, 9.8.0 loads fine. On the first Windows 10 (an Asus tablet, woefully underpowered), I can get 9.8.65 and 9.8.0 to work, but 9.7.0 throws an error. On the second Windows 10 laptop (an also-underpowered HP) I can get 9.8.0 to work, but neither of the others. So at this point, running any Visilogic reliably means loading up an XP virtual machine and running from in there, with all the performance hit that entails. I normally use Ubuntu linux at home, and I've been running apps in both Flatpak and Snap container formats. Windows doesn't support either of these (naturally) but it does support Docker. I am wondering how feasible it would be to provide Visilogic in a container, and if that would clear away some of the problems we keep having with version changes and OS updates breaking our system? Just an idea. Thanks!
  8. Hi Ausman, The original problem surfaced running on bare-metal Windows 7. I installed Visilogic into a Virtual Machine to mitigate the problem and be able to work on my equipment again. I haven't tried any compatibility mode changes yet, had a terrible experience with that many years ago. Things have probably (?) improved since then, so I may take another shot at it. Thanks for all the help! TM
  9. Thanks for the ideas guys, but it didn't help. It's not a swapper issue, this is all on Visilogic 65. I ripped it out with Revo, rebooted and reinstalled, still throws the error. Currently running Vsilogic under an XP virtual machine.
  10. I'm having the exact same problem, right after a Windows update (Win 7). I am an admin on my local machine, but following the instructions and shutting off the UAC made no difference at all. Help!
  11. Hello Unigurus! A small (hopefully simple) suggestion - give us the option to add a 1-pixel black border to HMI items, such as raised buttons and recessed indicators. Especially on certain color schemes, it gives a much cleaner look.
  12. Hi Cara! Form factor is an issue for me, this is an existing installation, with 30+ complex screens that I don't want to have to redraw. Changing the ladder program to accommodate a different sort of ethernet card would be just fine though. As for market demand, pretty sure folks have been asking for more than 4 sockets since the V280 days Thanks! Edit: On a related note, on this very project of which I speak, I have two robots and a vision system connected on Modbus TCP. I have one socket left (Socket 1) for programming via wireless router. Due to some obsolete servo drives, I are now moving to a different motion scheme, which involves a separate motion controller that connects via - you guessed it - Modbus TCP. Bye-bye convenient wireless programming, hello serial port. So this one is kind of a big deal for me, personally.
  13. This is not the first time I've seen this, but I think it's the first time I ever brought it up: I am using UTC to a data table to date/time-stamp an hourly production output. On my first sample, the UTC returned: 3724498800 I used this formula to convert it in Excel: =(F24/86400)+DATE(1900,1,1) where F24 contains the UTC value. This produced a result, after formatting, of 1/8/18 3:00 PM Which would be great - except today is 1/9/18 Simple enough to correct for with DATE(1900,1,2), but the inaccuracy is concerning. Am I doing something incorrectly? Edit: PS, I checked the Real Time Clock from Info Mode and it is correct. Thanks! TM
  14. What is the difference between the V100-17-ET1 ethernet card and the V100-17-ET2 ethernet card, electrically and functionally? I have several of the older cards I've kept from replaced / decommissioned PLCs and can't seem to find a difference in the specs. Thanks! TM
  15. Hi All! Ever since the birth of the V700, I sometimes pop my head in here, hoping to see a new V570-compatible ethernet module with support for seven sockets. I wonder if such a thing would be possible? I don't want to have to change the hardware, some of the HMIs are way too intricate... Thanks! TM
