CPS R05.17 Error Message

Postby bundy125 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 7:48 pm

Hello all,

I've recently bought and installed the R05.17 CPS and when I try to open it, I get the error message "unable to open the controller". The computer is a Dell E6510 laptop with Windows 7 OS. Has anyone had this problem or might be able to point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Plug your programming cable into the PC before you fire up the CPS.
