Dear all, In a previous post I asked if someone had the software for an old Taian TP02. We used to sell our bandsaw machines with these PLCs a long time ago, around when I was 5 years of age. They are NOT required anymore but its purely as a hobby / and it would be cool if I got it to work. Now I contacted Taian directly and surprisingly they did send me the PC12 software. What I did then was create a Windows 95 VMware and add a serial port (see picture). I connected the PLC to my laptop using a USB to COM cable(RS232 I believe) and the host recognized it as a connection (Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (com2)), and I selected com2 as the serial port that had to be added to the VMware. No problems there, but when I try to connect to the Taian TP02 PLC, it will give a communication time-out. This also happens when the cable is NOT connected, so I think I'm somehow missing an extra step. The cable I am using I also use to program HMI's with so I THINK that's not the issue. But if someone knows if I need a special cable or something, or missing a special driver to communicate between Windows 10 host and Windows 95 vmware, please let me know. But I'm guessing on a missing link between the host and VMware. the host will show Com2, and Windows 95 is only showing COM1. Please let me know, any help is welcome! Thanks
Wulfgar posted a topic in NJ Series / Sysmac StudioAs the title says, Studio 1.40 crashes if I try to run it in VMWare Workstation (version 14.1.8). I had to disable the "Accelerate 3D graphics" option in VMWare in order to install this upgrade, this has never been an issue before on earlier versions of Studio. I thought I could then re-enable it but this causes Studio to crash as soon as you start it up. I've not spent any time running it with 3D graphics disabled to know if it can run stable. Or if having it disabled causes problems with Studio or other software on my Omron VM. Has anyone else experienced this issue or have any insight?
