Hey Rios developpers,
I'm a 17 year old student at: Gemeentelijke Technische School Merchtem
I bought your lynxmotion robot.
We got it to work with several desktops wich have serial ports.
But Right now I have to install it on a laptop. The installation goes succesfully but when
I try to run the program i get this error:
Error reading ComComboBox1->ComProperty: Registry error (win error code:2)
I have read the topic about this problem, but it didn't provide me any help.
I also downloaded and tried to use the latest version of RIOS v1.06.
But still getting that error.
My laptop has no Serial port.
We used Serial to USB on those desktops and it worked all fine.
All drivers are OK
My laptop is a 2012 ACER, intelcoreI5,6GIG DDR3

You answered your own question. Your laptop has no serial port. Plug in a usb to serial cable before starting the application. ;)

You are going to have to use more words. You say you are in a big hurry but you don't reply for a week and a half. The error code you posted means the software is not seeing a serial port...

What brand usb to serial cable are you using?

What driver are you installing?

Never mind we solved the problem by connecting it to an old desktop.
We bought the micro controller wich we intended to save our program on. So we didn't have to connect it with the
desktop everytime it was moving. We could not find out how to get it to work so we just installed an old desktop under our project wich
is out of sight. Now we're just triggering the auxilarry gates with a siemens programmable logic controller. Not what we intended to do
but it works. We're 1 month away from our deathline now. But thx for replying so fast.

Not all USB COM port will work with that.
I know there are thread about that if you search the forum.

Are you using a serial cable or a serial to USB adapter? If you are using an adapter, which one, and have you verified that it installed correctly and your computer picks it up?

I'm using a serial to USB adapter. But i didn't even connect it to my laptop... Now i see it doesn't work. I tried to install drivers but there is still the same problem. The error code is 52.

If you look in device manager of windows.
Do you see that COM port ?

Yes. But I think i have got problem with drivers for this converter... This is discrabin of the error:
Windows can not verify the digital signature of the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have led to the installation file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or may be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)

Yes, sounds like driver issue. Windows 64 bit often does not like these unsigned drivers. Many times, you can either go up to the manufactures website and find an updated/signed driver for it, or depending on what chipset it uses (FTDI is probably the most popular), you can go up to their website and download a driver and potentially have to manually install it.

Or simply get another adapter that has valid drivers, like the one Lynxmotion sells: http://www.lynxmotion.com/p-699-usb-to- ... cable.aspx
