Good, thanks. Did you have to change your auto boot time to 0 to load it the second time as I said in the other post? Just feeling around and looking for info. to help in writing the manual.  :)

Thanks,
Brett

Hello,

I have a problem with the G-rex module , I downloaded te firmware into it and know it will not work anymore.

If got the same problem as discribde here in this topic, the same error code

Error during RUN phase: Communication/programming error
1) Enumerator: inst=0 part=1 ecode=813
Unsupported partition number

I also can`t get back in the installation browser to try to download new firmware in te G100.
I can ping it and get a reply, i'm able to communicate with the G100 using Grex-Loader.exe and believe that I have everything configured correctly.

The firmware pluggin is from   http://www.machsupport.com/artsoft/plugin.htm   Version 2.58  Motion Plugin

The discribsion that worked  for swainsk, doesn`t work for me:
''Once you get the error page, try to cycle power to the G100 and launch firmware loader without closing the firmware loader''   

Has anybody any idea what I should try next???

If you open the Grex loader, then cycle power to the G100, then start tapping on the find Grex in about 3 second increments does it open the the firmware loader on the second or third try? It will time out usually in 10 seconds, will have to cycle power to the G100 again.

Hello Brett,

I tried to  cycle power to the G100 and start the firmware loader before the 10 seconds it goes in run mode, but it just doesn`t works to get in the mode to load new firmware.
The first time ( the time i was alble to load the firmware ) I jused a straight thruw ethernet cable, later when the problem started I also tryed a crossed ethernet cable. Both seems to
connect to the G100, because the message in the G-rex loader says that succsefull found G-rex.

Is there maybe some way to get the firmware what is now in the G-rex out of it by some sort of reset, so I could try it from the start of again?

Hello,

The problem with not being able to connect to the mach software was a configuration in the mach software, not all the six axis were enabled.
This gives the error I got, now I`am able to use it correctly with mach.

One thing tho, I`am still not able to get into download mode with the firmware downloader, at this point I don`t need it but maybe in the future it
will be needed for firmware upgrades.
