    MCEDesigner v2.3 crashes!!! EVAL-M3-IM564 MCEWizard config file!!!

    1. Does EVAL-M3-IM564 have a wizard configuration file that goes with IMC102T? If yes, where can I find it? I just placed an order for IM564.

    2. I am currently using EVAL-M3-CM615PN and IMC102T-FO64 with MCEWizard_v2.3.0.0 and MCEDesigner_v2.3.0.0.
    While running the motor, the designer tool suddenly lost control of the control board twice and I had to power cycle the power board before regaining control on both occasions.
    Is this a bug? and is there way to avoid next time? I was only at 1000rpm, on a free-spinning motor.

    Everything was working fine for me with previous MCEdesigner.
    Then I switched to v2.3
    Using the firmware for my IMC101T-t038 board (the .IRC file...a configuration file)
    I now get this error double clicking on the .IRC file to start MCEdesigner v2.3.
    "product mismatch.....detected incompatible design type"

    I tried to install back again the previous version designer, but it now reports an error just at the end of install.

    What is confusing is the zip file titles don't match exactly the contents...drives one nuts.

    Did you try registering the eval board?
    (After you login...across the very top of the screen...look for your login...then a drop down menu for product registration....type the very first part "eval" and see if you get lucky.)
    If you're lucky you'll find a preconfigured wizard file (.mc2) in there someplace in the zip.

    All the available wizard configuration files can be downloaded on iMOTION webage under development tools: MCEWizard Configuration files v1.0. No need to register to gain access to these.

    Product mismatch is due to firmware and .irc file not being the same version. When downloading a new software package from the website, make sure you program your IC with the updated firmware within the package (.ldf) to accompany the new MCEDesigner configuration file (.irc).

    Unfortunately, we do not have a wizard file yet available for this combination and the release of this file is delayed due to COVID-19. I may be able to provide you one that hasn’t be tested out yet so there are no guarantees that it will work. I will give an update by the end of the week.
    Regarding #2....
    First are you using iMOTION™ Link to program or the usb cable connection from board? I am assuming USB cable but just want to check. Does free-spinning mean no load on motor shaft? What PWM switching frequency have you configured your motor drive set-up to?

    v2.3 of the tools was just recently released and it is possible this may be a bug. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, I do not have lab access to repeat and try to debug the problem. Are you willing to try the same set-up with v2.2 of the tools and see if MCEDesigner still loses control? You would need to reprogram your controller with an older firmware version and use an older MCEDesigner configuration file available here: IMC102T-F064 MCE Software Package v1.2.1. You would also need to uninstall v2.3 of MCEDesigner and then install the older version available here in tool brief: MCEDesigner v2.2. Lastly, you must change your parameter text file to be compatible with MCEDesigner v2.2. You can do this in MCEWizard v2.3 by changing the version in options page and then exporting the new text file (see image below).

    I'll give people a heads-up on uninstalling designer v2.3.
    You Might encounter problems with installing previous version MCEdesigner, once you've had v2.3 on a computer.
    If anyone knows a fix, let me know.

    I started with a previous version--everything worked.
    I then updated to v2.3.
    Had issues.
    So I un-installed v2.3 and tried to install the previous versions.(Tried a few starting with previous)
    The previous version MCEdesigner installer bombs out with simply an ERROR message near the end of the install. No error description.
    I've now tried this on TWO computers that had V2.3
    Yes, I tried even the windows un-installer.
    yes, I even tried a reg cleanup after uninstall of 2.3

    After hours of trying various things, (uninstallers to remove remnants, reg cleaners, loggers)….I finally tried ALSO un-installing the MCEWizard_v2.3.0.0.
    Now it lets me install previous MCEdesigner programs.

    I have repeated this problem on my own computer and it is true. If you would like to install an older version of MCEDesigner you MUST uninstall MCEWizard v2.3 first. I will update this post once this issue has been solved
