WIFI and Masso Link 1.2


i get this error msg when trying to upload a file and the masso is in homing mode.

figured i could send a file , but not when the masso is doing something else.

I have to wait for it to finish a job before i can send another file

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

You can only send a file to MASSO when the controller is not generating any motion as priority is given to motion commands.

But when do you get this error? are there steps that we can follow to replicate the error?


Is it possible to have a pull down list for the folder location on the masso link.

I have numerous files and folders on usb and would be easier to select correct file rather than pc file.

It does get confusing when l have files on usb and on pc.

I have been typing in folder name which does work but would be easier to select from pull down list.

This would be a low priority as there are more important features that need to be done.


No, l would go the other way.

Pull down list matching the same as the usb stick.

F6 screen opens and shows all folders and then open each folder for different files.

At the moment, you upload files and they go into PC file automatically and then you need to remove usb drive at some stage to sort files into folders.

By having a folder tree the same as f6 screen, files can be placed in correct file easily.

I do realize you can type required folder into location however is easier with a pull down menu.

It might be easier that an entire folder on PC is synced to MASSO folder with subfolders and files, this way you don't have to select a folder in MASSO Link everytime you need to send a file, MASSO Link will mirror the folders & files.

I think this will be easier and once you change a file or folder then MASSO Link automatically detects the change and updates folders and files on MASSO.
