  • Compilation driver error

    Good morning,

    I use a GEN4-50DCT-CLB Screen and I have a problem with Workshop4.

    I use a microUSB cable with gen4-PA to the micro and a uSD Reader/Writer.

    When I compile with VisieGenie, it works correctly but when I use Visie this message appears :

    "Apparent driver failure. Please ensure that latest PA5, programming cable, CE5, or MB5 drivers are installed"

    I never compile with the card in the micro because it doesn't work, I always compile with the card in the uSD Reader and then add it in the micro.

    I've tried to change the COM, reinstall Workshop4, change the uSD Reader, update the driver in window, format the uSD in FAT, change the micro USB cable.

    Thank you for your help

    Allamand

    Hello Allamand,

    Welcome to the forum

    It seems that you have done everything correctly but we will need to check the status of your driver for the gen4-PA. Could you please look at your windows device manager to see if the gen4-PA is correctly installed and running correctly and what is the com port number assigned to it.

    Best regards

        Hi,

        Thank you for checking that. In Workshop, click on the Comms tab and can you check that the display model is shown in the status panel. If not can you press the red button to the left of the status panel.

            Hi,

            The comms is blue and it is written : Gen4-uLCD-50DCT- CLB-A[v2.0, 16/06/09]

            When I compile, the light comes on/off quickly for 2 seconds and then it stops.

            On the screen:
            Filename: EssaiiVisi.4x
            Saving to RAM
            Buffering
            error 5

              Hi,

              Could you try starting a new project, choosing your display and then click on designer. Then Comp'n'Load. This should just print 'Hello World' on the display.

                  Hi,

                  But you have successfully loaded a Visi-Genie program and it worked ok. I haven't heard of this happening before. If you try a Visi-Genie program again can you let me know if that still works. Also you could try setting the destination to Flash under the Tools, Project tab.

                    Hi,
                    Yes it still works with ViSi-Genie.
                    I tried the destination to Flash in ViSi but the error appears again and it doesn't work

                      Ok,

                      I will do some further testing here and try to replicate your problem. I will get back to you with some more suggestions shortly.

                      Best regards

                        Hi,

                        This may be an issue with your filename length and how your PC is setup to handle short filenames. Could you try shortening the filename by saving your project with 'Save As' to something like EssaVisi so it is no longer than 8 characters.

                        Best regards
