    In case you all haven't noticed, the download site has been changed recently.  So thanks @Cara Bereck Levy, for persuading the powers that be.  I'd still be not showing the beta at all, as it seems that Youngies ALWAYS have to have the latest and greatest!  But this is much better than the previous situation.

    Took a little time--but yes :)

    OK Cara, time's up.  You have to tell us what it means.   Really truly from the company's founders.

    cheers, Aus

    Heh. The designer who made it is looong gone. I'll see if I can jog the memories of people who have been here longer than my 21 years...

    I ran into a bug that was a show stopper a few years back. Here’s the good news: a fix was released. It took a few weeks, keep in mind (someone correct me if I’m wrong) software fixes come out of Isreal. If anyone gets a fix released in less than a week please let me know how it was done. 

    heh--@hotwires, I remember that!

    And you're right. R&D is in Israel,  my  buddies here stomp  bugs! 

    Generally, bug fixes are released along with versions. Service packs are usually to address Windoze versions--they change stuff, we have to update to support it, and we include any fixes that we have made along the way. as far as the timeline--less than a week isn't gonna happen.

    I totally agree with Ausman and NEVER upgrade the firmware of a working system. However, it's not likely to hose things, but my motto is the same as the engineer's creed: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    Why I disable automatic updates to Windoze...

    @Joe Tauser, did you get that from my video file or from your own TV?

    I thought the camera lingered a bit on the V570 and gave a momentary thought that this might be "product placement", but I seriously doubt it.

    But very cool--thanks for reporting it!
    This happens every so often. Now I'm thinking of doing a blog post called Accidental Sightings, or Unitronics in the Wild :-)

    I often use AliExpress and they always have funny/curious/way off English translations in reviews. But this one, whilst looking for a new set of wire terminal crimpers, took the cake!    "Perfect, I will ask for another for grimparme the testicles".

    As the only native English speaker in our R&D department, I've heard some doozies--but that is definitely one for the annals!
    For a number of years, the head of Support here was a guy who spoke 6 languages. English was his 5th, followed by Hebrew. Some of the constructions he would come up with in English would have me ROTFLMAO--the meaning would be clear, though, I must say. I'd see a thread of his that was clearly started by an Asian language speaker using a translation tool - but the beauty of it was that as engineers, they understood each other .

    Joe, I really do think there is a bit of a nostalgic character wanting to jump out of your body, along with a healthy dose of sci-fi related stuff.  Going to see the latest Star Wars episode must be an exciting time for your family!


      cheers, Aus

    I just put together 5 boxes of bound books to donate--I read e-books almost exclusively,  I need space...but I haven't gotten rid of anything near and dear to my heart.
    Which means that you will NOT find any of my SF titles in those boxes!!!!

    I'm going to hit up @Cara Bereck Levy one more time just in case she missed it. It looks like the Timers Help section was lost in the update to 9.8.79. Didn't this happen once before?

    Yes--it has happened before--I fixed it.
    I'm really sorry--I tried something this time that I hope will prevent this from ever happening again.  .chm Help is a Microsoft invention, and the compiler hasn't been updated--or bug-fixed--since 2012. The database behind the Help sometimes corrupts, and loses objects--even though it compiles without error. I have a feeling it is due to nesting...anyway, I rebuilt some stuff.  Hope it fixes the issue once and for all.

    Yeah, I have thought about that Windows 10 thing also. Unfortunately, I updated all of my computers from 7 & 8.1 to 10, leaving just a couple of old XP machines. While I am not a lover of Microsoft, I must admit that Windows 10 overall has been pretty solid with regards to running all of my controls-related programs (PLC's, HMI's, etc.).  And I have had no problems with Visilogic up until now. But fighting to uninstall that Beta made me think that maybe the installation was corrupt. I am just gun shy about reinstalling it on my main computer. 

    Joe, thanks for anticipating my question to them about rolling back the database. Now I will just send the files and ask them to do it.


    Hello there :)
    I just spoke with the head of the Support department (8:30 on a Sunday is the beginning of the working week here in sunny Israel)

    He asked if you were running VisiLogic as an administrator (all of our programs should be run this way.
    If so, and you are experiencing these difficulties at any rate--please contact Support, either by writing to support@unitronics,com or by opening a ticket here: https://support.unitronics.com/index.php

    They are trying to reproduce the problem as we speak--we will be releasing an official version in the near future, so if there's a bug, we are going to stomp it immediately.

    We apologize for the inconvenience, and thanks for reporting your problem :)

    These messages reek of the issue I discovered ages ago and wrote about on the forum, I've forgotten where,  where Visi seemed to open the comm port for no reason at all on opening the program.  Wondering if that might be the case, and the program is getting confused as to where it is meant to be doing things. 

    Regardless...... @Cara Bereck Levy....have you read the thoughts on not having the beta prominent?

    cheers, Aus  

    Thanks for tagging me. @Ausman

    I'll check into a re-design of the download page.
