ISY Driver
« on: January 17, 2013, 05:32:12 pm »
Anyone else trying to use this on Windows 7? After install, no drivers show up, and there is nothing in the log about it after firing up Elve.

No drivers period show up or just the ISY driver? I am using WHS 2011 and Win 7 without any issues. You may verify that the correct version of the ISY driver was installed... version 0.26. After that you may try restarting the Elve services.
I always wanted to be somebody. In retrospect, I think I should have been more specific.

I just tried installing on Win7 64 and it installed fine, well at least it shows up in the c:\users\All Users\Application Data\Codecore Technologies\Elve\DeviceDrivers\Compiled directory like it's supposed to.  The Elve 2.0.0.6 beta says it's expired so I can't try to install or start it.

I did do the installation using the Administrator account.  That might make a difference.

I got it. Something must have been hosed on install. Uninstall/reinstall and we're good.

How does the lighting driver handle X10 and Preset Dim? Trying to implement control of my RCS t-stat.

It doesn't, not directly.  It is a driver that interfaces to the ISY controller and the devices exposed by the ISY, using the ISY's command and status API's.  How do you control the t-stat from the ISY?  If the t-stat is configured on the ISY as a standard lighting device, then standard lighting controls will be exposed to the driver.

I know the ISY has the ability to interface with X10 devices on a limited basis, but I've only tried controlling an X10 light switch (which is out of range of the PLM on the ISY so it never works).

The ISY driver currently only supports a sub-set of the ISY capabilities.   Either what I thought were the most useful capabilities or those that were very easy to implement in Elve.

I don't yet. ;) There are Preset Dim messages in the ISY log, so, it seems to support it.

This is a temperature-change report...
