  1. Registering EDS Files

    Hey guys, thanks for the ideas. I did try all of the things I could think of logically. Ended up on the phone with RA Tech Support for a total of 6 hours over 2 days. Of course one of their suggestions was to Uninstall ALL versions of RSLogix5000 and Studio5000, which just that alone takes over 2 hours. I then re-installed Studio ver. 30. Still no luck. The next thing the gal looked at was for the proper version of RSLinx. Hmmmmmm I only had RSLinx Enterprise. OK, so install RSLinx Classic for Studio ver. 30. Still no luck. So next the gal takes remote control of my machine and wants to STOP all services using MSConfig. Now we are getting into some pretty serious stuff. After doing that and rebooting, lo and behold, the EDS Installer Worked! OK, well having to shut down all of those services is pretty danged invasive. So I tried one other thing, I ran the EDS Installer from the Windows menu by Rt-Clicking and choosing Run as Administrator. That worked! wow maybe someone else will read this thread and save themselves DAYS of pain and anguish.   Program on Excellent Dudes!
  2. Registering EDS Files

    Hey everyone, I seem to have gotten myself into a whopper of a problem at work. I am trying to register an EDS file in Studio 5000 ver. 30. The EDS file is from Bihl-Wiedemann for an ASi Gateway device. In Studio I am going to Tools, then EDS Hardware Installation Tool, then I drill down to where I have the EDS file saved, select it and click Next, Next. Then I get the message at the end saying You have successfully completed the EDS Wizard, and there are no errors in the error box. Great! Except now when I go to the Ethernet Tree and attempt to add this device, There are no Bihl-Wiedemann devices available. I have also tried this with an IO-Link device from Turck, same result. Rockwell tech support had me Uninstall all versions of RSLogix and Studio and then reinstall just ver. 30. Did that, same result. Anybody have any great ideas for me to try?
