I have used Girder 5 for a long time, but have upgraded to girder 6. I use a RF MCE Remote Control model OR22V. In girder 5 I just loaded Generic X10 Remotes plugin and it worked. The closest I found in Girder 6 is the X10 Generic Plugin. When I try to start this, I get the message:
Source=X10 Generic Plugin, Message=Could not start Generic X10 Interface (1)
in the logger.

Is this not supported or should I do it some other way?

Is pro version required to use a X10 remote?

Sincerly Stefan

On this same computer if you install Girder 5 now does this work? (If not sure please try you can install G5 on same machine for testing, just pick different directory)

I have already done so and is running girder 5 without any problems.

I was wondering if the X10 support requires a pro license as I have a standard, which is what I had for girder 5.

If you are not running the 32bit version can you try that one.

I have removed the 64bit version and installed the 32bit version. It takes a lot longer to start for some reason. I don't get an error message about starting X10 now but I still can't see any events either. Will I see them in the lower edge of the window like in girder 5? Also the event editor in girder 6 doesn't seam to have any learn functionality.

Open the Event Log to see events. Also you can simply drag and drop events from the log ( easier than learning )

Ok, then I see no events from the remote.

OK I'll have to investigate. I had to create that plugin without actually having the hardware... Give me a bit to look at it.

Exit Girder completely (check tray bar)

Can you unzip the attached plugin and place it in the <GIRDER>\plugins directory. Make sure it overwrites the existing x10generic.dll.

Restart Girder and open the Log you should see a few messages from the X10 plugin. Can you copy and paste your log here?
