    Much like Steve's experience, I copied sequences, profiles, and programs and everything fired right up. From the scheduler I'm running a program using a profile, than repeating a sequence with a profile and then one without each for 90 minutes and I'll repeat that daily until I break it or the snow melts and I can take down my display - whichever happens first.

    MR16s look good under the snow.

    Thanks KC

    Nothing can be done with Vixen until the current Executing Timer Control runs its course, or you crash Vixen from the Control Panel.
    That's fair and reasonable. What else have you done that crashes the app while a scheduled execution is running?

    Thumbs up Re: 2.1 Tentative

    Downloaded 2.1, copied audio/sequences/profiles, made a new program, set a timer.

    It started on time, and is still running.

    I had no problems with timers, background music, or any issues with anything this season. I can't confirm any fixes, but I can say it still works!!

    I am confused. I downloaded 2.1, extracted the zip file, went to the folder where everything was extracted, opened it up, and cannot find a setup.exe, install.exe or vixen.exe in the directory. All I can find is Prepare.exe and update.exe. I think prepare converts old files and update is just the script that runs when you start vixen.

    Which am I supposed to click on or what did I forget to do? Thanks in advance for any help.

    No vixen.exe? Try downloading it again, it should be in there.

    If there is another subfolder named "Vixen 2.1", keep opening them. Like the spaghetti sauce...it's in there.

    Hi KC

    I'm a "new one", so I may have the problems. I'm still learning.

    This error occurs on sequence startup (F5):

    Plugins:
    Adjustable Preview
    Renard Dimmer (modified)
    32 channels (1-32)
    Serial Port==Com 2
    8 data bits
    No Parity
    1 Stop Bit

    Following dialog box opens:
    ================================================== ====================================
    Vixen Error:

    Renard Dimmer (modified)

    (Router-Startup)
    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service

    ================================================== ====================================

    Sequence continues normally after pressing OK in dialog box.

    I do not have the Renards connected (they are not constructed yet).

    This dialog did not appear until using Tentative 2.1.

    The sequence (unfinished) ran OK on 2.09. However, going back to 2.09 after the error with 2.1 results in the same error without a restart of the computer.

    Also, the computer restarts itself from a shutdown command, but only after using Tentative 2.1.

    Further testing will be done to see if it's my problem.

    Computer:
    AMD Athlon 64--2.0 Ghz.
    2.0 GB memory
    2 monitors
    Windows XP Home Edition

    Thanks for your work. Would like to see recognition of USB ports in Parallel plugins.

    Again, THANKS

    So far this is the only area I've encountered this problem KC

    Thanks all,
    I got the files finally. After KC told me to download it again, I checked the Zip files and they were in there - they just never extracted (about 4 files failed to extract). Extracted again and got it to work.

    KC, thanks for the change to the script sequences that allow lights to stay on between commands. Makes it very useful for how I intend to use the scripts.

    Things have been quiet. Is it really going that well or is everyone as busy as everyone seems to be these days?
