I knew this was gonna come back and bite me in the ass one day.
I am gearing up for my next assignment, which is a school that uses Invensys/TAC. The software we normally use is Micronet FlowBalance v2.0. My LON card I use is a Trane branded PCC-10 LONTalk card.
The problem I keep having is the Micronet software keeps locking up. I fire it up, and click on "New". The Cosmo icon will pop up in my taskbar, but then quickly go away. I can start putting ID's into the system, but usually after a few minutes, the program locks up, requiring me to reboot my computer, and having to reset any controllers I have entered.
There has to be something I am missing here. I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 and Echelon's OpenLDV drivers for the card. In case anyone wants to know, I have tried it with multiple Echelon branded cards, and my Trane Comm5 (Echelon card in a Trane wrapper). Nothing seems to work, and it seems tied to the software.
I called a friend who is really good with Invensys and he says he has no idea why it is doing this.
I know the install is good, as I installed it on a co-workers machine using the same install media and OpenLDV drivers and he has had no problems.
