  1. Hi @Prem Lanka,

    Was that Israel Support?

    Please contact them again if you have difficulties; I saw that you originally posted on Friday, which is our weekend, but everyone is back at work on Sunday ūüôā

    Support said that it is common for CPUs to lose connection with the Panel immediately after applying a firmware update, and that just cycling the power should fix the problem. However, cycling the power did not fix the connection issue, and my ip settings still would not save so I could not ping it from any other device. I did eventually get it to work after performing the following:

     

  2. An very funny--and common--auto-correct fail is the 'messages' being replaced by 'massages'. Which is actually a good replacement in real life terms, considering the neck/shoulder/back tension after hours of playing keyboard jockey...

  3. Hi guys--I'm really late in replying here, sorry.

    Yes--UniCAN is indeed token run, and UniCAN is, if you use the proper cable as Joe observed, about as stable as it get...

    I think at the moment that I'd love the Creators to chime in and explain exactly how it all works, how the loop reacts to different plc calls etc.  Help gives information, but I think it could go into a lot more depth, covering things like Structs etc.  The "mechanics"of how it all works ok, including any time allowances for the amount of data zinging around, would be nice to know. 

    Is this the question? Specifically the 'call loop' in UniCAN?

  4. A bit--ok, a lot of bits--after the fact, but yes. 

    It is amazing how our bodies are attuned to the actual cycles of light, dark, seasons, etc.
    As far as directions, so much of our consciousness is filtered, works on autopilot, that it is unsettling to suddenly need to pay attention to things that our brains automatically skip over.  It is learnt, certainly, or to be more accurate, it is an adaptive mechanism--like that experiment with inverting lenses.

    Joe, keep posting stuff like this and they'll revoke your Curmudgeon Club membership!

    Ask the Creators if a "Bypass Confirmations" option can be added to the download sequence or at least if they can trigger the audible Windows Notification sound  when the question dialog pops up.

    I'll check--but I think this is related to an ancient Installshield sequence, which we are loathe to touch for VisiLogic. 

    That particular architecture is Rube Goldberg at his finest, we managed to stuff that *couldn't* be done, and keep it pretty solid, all things considered.

    I was trying to remember Joe's name as I was writing. WITHOUT A DOUBT @Joe Tauser! Although he has a grumpy look in his avatar, I hope that we bring a smile to his face  :) 

    I think that most long-time forum members know that I write the Help for the software. I was a newbie at technical writing when I joined Unitronics. I also knew nothing, zilch, about controllers, had no tech background except for whatever I remembered from high school physics.
     @Joe Tauser contacted me regarding one of the first iterations of the VisiLogic Help.  (this was more years ago than I care to admit to :rolleyes:.)

    Joe asked questions--I had to find out the answers and put them in the Help. In addition to improving the Help, I learned a lot about the field. He pointed out errors--including spelling and such, which was great, because I am the only native English speaker at Unitronics R&D, and have never had anyone to edit my writing.

    Joe is not the only one who has contributed in this way--but just has he has the greatest forum cred, so was the size of his contribution in raising the quality of our documentation.

  7. Guys, I looked into this as regards UniLogic. I don't have an answer right now, but I am guessing (unofficially, just my guess) that it will make it into the To-do list. I do know this is considerably more expensive, in terms of development time, than you would think--not just a matter of setting a few properties. So I'm guessing it will take a while.

    Aus, VisiLogic is VB6--different animal, as you know. I'll ask...
