USB PIM question...

Postby Near76 » Thu Jan 01, 2009 10:20 pm

How do I tell the UPB driver that my PIM is a USB version...it will only let me select COM ports to select to...what am I missing? Thanks!

The USB port likely maps to a comport (serial). Check Device Manager for which Com it is associated to. There may be a selection of comports in the USB driver.

Tried that, I do not see any new com ports mapped in device manager...I also tried connecting to all of the comm ports listed. Upstart works fine, but the port it shows is "USB"

This post explains it...looks like I need a Serial SimplyAutomated PIM...they have their own propritary USB format. Can you recommend the USB PIM that you know works with MLS, thanks!

Matt,

We did all of our development with the Simply Automated Serial UPB Pim.

Thanks, Mario. I am up and running with the Serial SA PIM. One more question. How can I make a keypad button fire off an MLS event? I can't seem to find a wiki topic specific to UPB for this.

I have a keypad button for example that will activate a link when pressed, how do I see that in MLS?
