  • Re_install PCDMIS

    Hello,

    We had a virus on our computer where was installed PCDMIS.

    I tried to reinstall PCDMIS. It worked. But when I launch PCDMIS, I have the message "no cart found", and PCDMIS shut down.

    We have a floppy disk "XnPCI". Is it the software to reinstall the card ? I don't want to crash anythink, we don't have the money to buy it again !

    Thank you for your help,

    Guillaume MARTIN

    Did you rerun your hasp key install? Do you have a back up of the PCDMISW folder that was on your C drive? If so run that though the virus software and restore it to the PC. What type of machine and controller do you have?

      No ! Could you please tell me how to do ?

      Do you have a back up of the PCDMISW folder that was on your C drive?
      no ! I thought I had to erase it to do a "clean install"...


      What type of machine and controller do you have?
      We have a Gage 2000 Brown & Sharpe. What do you mean by "controler" ? The card ? ( The card is a "Brown & Sharp PCI Scale interface". )

      Thank you for your help,

        Never, under ANY circumstances, UN-INSTALL any versino of Pcdmis from your computer. Possible problems:

        1) You can loose ALL your compensation files and will no longer be in calibration and it will require a new laser map to make the machine any good again (UNLESS your comp-map is IN the controller, but not all of them are)

        2) Loose registration information as to controller controls, etc.

        3) Loose your mind as a result of trying to figure out if you are good to go once you get it re-installed.


        A "fresh' install or a re-install can be done by following these directions:

        Since I have been spouting this set of directions, I have not heard of a single case where following them caused any problems or issues, OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT Pcdmis can not 'remember' different search paths, the operator (YOU) has to take care of that everytime you open a different version.

          If you have a way, test your communications between the PC and the controller. You could have a bad COMM port or something. The hasp key install program (hinstall) is in the PCDMISW folder on your C drive. It is an execute file. As far as the floppy disc, what do you have to lose by installing it. You cant use your CMM right now so I say go for it.
