Re: Flowcode 8 crash

Hi all,

We upgraded the site's certificate a few weeks ago, but there seems to be a problem with it when it changed over today. We're looking into it and should rectify it in the next hour or so.

And I hope to have a new installer for Flowcode v8 out later today.

Regards,
Steve.

Re: mLoader and Windows10

I have created a new version of mLoader which will be distributed as part of a Flowcode v8 patch that I hope to release in the next week or two. If anyone wants to try it (especially @PHolz, @RILamb, or anyone else experiencing the problem in this thread), you can download and unzip the attached and...

Re: Flowcode 8 crash

Hi Martin, No need to upload the registry as I know what's preventing Flowcode from running. The reason for the initial crash, however, remains a mystery. I did release (via PM) a special build of Flowcode v8 at the end of Jan to people who were experiencing the problem. This tackles some of the pot...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

I see the problem. The "tools" folder in Flowcode should contain many subfolders such as "Buggyprog", PICkit2" and "mLoader". An image of mine is below. It looks like your mLoader files have all been placed directly in the "tools" folder, rather than unde...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

Thanks, Robert. According to that message, there is no "mLoader" folder under "c:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode v8\tools". Can you please check that folder to see if it's missing. Perhaps the "mLoader" folder has been renamed or been moved somewhere else? And where is th...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

Hi Robert, Thanks for the mLoader debug messages. Please disregard my previous post about saving your flowcode program in a different location. The problem is that Flowcode is not finding the correct location of mLoader. I have prepared a batch file which should shed some light on why this is. Pleas...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

Hi Robert, Did you get a similar debug message to @PHolz? Specifically, the "vid_8087&pid_0ac2" part? Regarding the problem with Flowcode, it looks like Flowcode can see the mLoader.exe file, but mLoader cannot see your HEX file. To easily fix this, you could make a new folder for your...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

Hi Robert, I think the problem regarding the path is something to do with there being no 8.3 filename support on your PC. I will try to find the instructions to fix this shortly. In the meantime, could you please download and run this file with no Matrix board plugged in and let me know what message...

Re: mLoader and Windows10

Hi Robert, Thanks for getting back to me. You should be able to rename the existing mLoader.exe file (e.g. to mLoader_original.exe) and then rename the mLoaderA.exe to mLoader.exe, and then it should work fine through Flowcode as well. Even if this all works fine for you, I would like to investigate...

Please try the attached file and let me know what message you get. Plug your E-blocks board in first before running mLoader. Also, can you please upload a screenshot of mLoader once it has run and you have dismissed the debug message.

Re: Bad mistake in FC8!

Hi all,

If anyone wants to help and is experiencing this problem relatively frequently, can you please contact me via PM. I am creating a special build of Flowcode that will hopefully help and I want to test it a bit more before releasing it as a patch.

Thanks,

Re: Connection Points Bug

Flowcode supports only 26 connection points per macro. If you require more, then I guess your macro is very long and complicated, and you should perhaps rewrite it and/or split it into smaller macros. There are many debates about good programming practice, and some programmers recommend functions sh...

Re: Bad mistake in FC8!

This shutdown problem has been extremely frustrating for us. We have seen it ourselves just a few times over the same week about 6 months ago - it seemed to have no pattern, could not be replicated and therefore is almost impossible to fix. Our suspicion is that an update to some other product (e.g....
