  1.  Hey guys I'm trying to get a older (windows 7) laptop full of A-B software up and running for my company. Like may companies, we have been reorganized and the person who bought the software under another company name no longer "owns" this company computer. Long story short, I'm having an RSLinx fault "RSLinx communication server has stopped working". I do not have the original discs or software key number information.   I can pull up the PLC software, hook up to a PLC using the DF1 comms, auto configure and detect the PLCs/panelviews in linx, so everthing, so the ports and cables seem ok to that point. But when I try to go online, or upload I get this fault. Is this an easy fix?   Will I need to reload linx 2.59 (no longer available), or could I download the free RSLinx Lite and communicate through that? I tried to download newer RSLinx classic through my Rockwell account, but Rockwell asks for information I do not have, like original purchasers name and/or Key numbers. I typed in the original company name, but there is a mismatch with Rockwell, who know what info they may have used?  I'd hate to toss all of this software away (RSLogix500, RSLogix5, Studio 5000, Factory View, Panelbuilder, ect... ) because RSlinx has some problem. My company no longer supports this old laptop, and rockwell is reluctant to help. This is really used as a programmer tool, not really a useable business laptop anymore.  I also dont know the legal or copyright issues, or if Rockwell considers my company a continuation of the original owner?? I'm in engineering, not the legal dept. I certainly dont want to stir the pot if I don't have to. LOL
  2. Hi and thanks for youre time  I am a newbie trying to connect to a 1769-L30ERMS using an Ethernet cable. I am using Studio 5000 and RSLinx Classic lite for programming and communication. However Studio 5000 and RSLinx Classic lite are installed on av virtual machine using VMware.  So my problem is two fold. Connect the VM so that it reads from the real computers ethernet port Find and communicate with the PLC from the VM There are guides on how these problems are addressed seperatly. For example and however I have not been able to get them to work together. So I was wondering if you, the sages of PLC programming might have some tips or trix that I could test or perhaps even a guide for how to do? Mvh Eric
  3. I put together a system a couple of years ago with a L306ERM with I-O, PanelView, etc and I was sold Studio 5000 Lite to program it. It worked out ok on that project but now I have a project that I need to use a Powerflex 525 VFD and the software won't let me add the Powerflex. I've tried several different PFs and none can be added. It crashes at the Create button and puts out the wonderfully descriptive message of "Unknown Error" Email AB support. As of 4-1-21, AB doesn't take emails for Powerflex drives. Anyone know if the Lite version of Studio 5000 will work with a Powerflex 525?Thanks you for looking.

  5. Good day I have a scenario where I need to connect to Ethernet ST-lite units to an L-series PLC. With a Q-series you will use the Modbus card and create a Intellgent Function Module to do this and specify the header addressing for the unit. With the L-series, you have Modbus on the build-in Ethernet port, but how do I now setup and specify the addressing for the for the ST-lite unit? Please help...
  6. Hi I need a little help please with networking through ST Lite. The scenario. I have a Q03UDECPU (Ethernet CPU) PLC which need to connect to STL-ETH1 (ST-Lite unit) unit and then also to the LAN for the MAPS SCADA to be able to read it. Now the STL-ETH unit has 2 network ports that I can use. However, I need to know if a daisy chain type of configuration will work. Basically LAN --> Port 1 on ST-lite and from Port 2 -- PLC and then back the same route. Is this possible? Reason for this is because I only have 1 network connection available from the LAN.
