FW: vrf Instrument i/o "NOT LIVE"

Question asked by VRFuser on Oct 27, 2006
 
Dale,
 
First, I will assume that you have turned on 'Live mode' in the instrument's advanced settings. 
 
I have found that when changing the mode to Live that I have had to close the program and reopen it before the change shows up in the program.

Dale,

 

Changing to a Live address should work, but you must remember to click “Save† in the I/O Instrument Manager before closing.

 

If Save is greyed out it can be that the I/O configuration has been saved with the program at “Create Runtime Version†.  How I got around, this quirk, was to:

1.       Save the project,

2.       Click on Create Runtime Version,

3.       Uncheck the Save I/O Configuration with Program,

4.       Close VEE development,

5.       Open VEE development,

6.       Open Project,

7.       Open I/O Instrument Manager,

8.       Edit the Instrument Properties, and type in a valid address. i.e. 714

9.       Close the Properties Box

10.   Click Save on the I/O Instrument Manager dialog box,

11.   Resave the project,

12.   Click on Create Runtime Version ensuring save I/O configuration with program is selected.

 

I have since found that if you uncheck Save I/O configuration with program a text file with the project name and an extension of io is created.  I’m guessing a little judicious text editing of the io file may convert a “Not Live† instrument to “Live†.

 

Regards,

Gary

Can a 'dead' instrument in the Inst. Manager be brought to life? Changing interface to an active bus/address does not activate.
