I'm new to Campbell Scientific so bear with me if this is a newbie question.
I'm trying to connect a Sierra Wireless RV55 to a CR300 datalogger. My understanding that to do so you need to run a program from Campbell Scientific (CS) called ACE Manager.
Supposedly, it will have a method for installing a similar model LTE modem. However, when I attempt to install the CS ACE Manager software it says its _OPTIONAL_ to install a .NET package. If I instruct the install program to download and install the .NET package it fails. It says the package can not be located. If I restart the install process and skip the install of the .NET package it fails and says .NET package is required.
Its been a long time since I worked with dos, but I seem to remember that they use a control panel applet called "Uninstall or change a program". If I run that applet, I don't see .NET listed. Possibly .NET is installed via the new app store and that is maintained seprately. Don't know.
If I go to this URL, https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download I see there are two .NET versions. If I rerun the AceManger it says "AceManager optionally uses the Microsoft .NET 1.1 Framework." Sadly the URL above has version 5 and 3. Any idea how to install 1.1 version?
The modern Sierra Wireless modems do not use the old Ace Manager desktop software. The modem has a web browser based Ace Manager software built in.
Refer to the quick start guide for the RV50. The instructions will likely work for a RV55.
LOL. JDavis? I'm JDavis. Small world.
Yes, I will try your technique. FWIW, I spoke with support via phone and spoke with Jeff. He pointed out that the comport is a SDI12 Comm Port and not the comm port for the USB cable.
I was able to get the login to the RV55. I also loaded the template file from CS. I did not have a null modem DB9 M/F cable so I could not proceed further. I'll resume later today when the cable arrives.
Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.
