FDS Throttle App "Unspecified Error" (RESOLVED)

Post by SWeker »

Afternoon,
I utilize the "FDS Throttle and Trim Controller" application for Sim-A. Since upgrading to version 1.931, it won't read the phidget serial numbers from the config file and throws an "Unspecified Error" message. I tried starting a new config file without success.

I am using Phidgets 21

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve

Ran into this on another Throttle.

Download the last Phidgets 21 and uninstall the original and re-install from the the download.

See if that fixes it.
