Problem with Crossworks

Started by Xtian Xultz January 19, 2006
Hello guys

I am trying to work with Crossworks under Linux and Windows. It runs fine, but
when I try to access my Wiggler attached at the parallel port, it says (under
Linux and Windows give me the same message) "The port is already in use by
another program", but nobody is using it (under Linux I can check this with
the fuser command, under Windows I dont know).
Somebody knows ehat kind of problem can this be? (I asked about that in the
support site from Rowley but I didnt get any answer in one week).

Thanx in advance for any help

With best regards

Hi Xtian,

I can't find your request on our support site - here's an extract from
our linux faq.

Regards
Michael

Failure to connect to parallel port target interfaces may be caused by
the following problems:

* The user does not have read permission for the parallel port
device driver (e.g. /dev/parport0). Linux typically does not grant
all users access to the parallel port device drivers by default.
To permit a user to access to the parallel port device drivers the
user can either be added to the *lp* group, or alternatively the
read permissions of the parallel port device driver can be changed
to allow all users to have read access to it. Either of these
actions require super user level permissions.
* Another application or device driver already has exclusive control
of the parallel port device driver. >Hello guys

Tive um problema desse com um programa que sfuncionava quando eu fechava o
processo spoolsv.exe (no winXP). N sei se foi com o Crossworks, mas vale
tentar.
Abras,
Maia

FWIW, I've never had that problem. I'm using WinXP, is that what you are
using?

Hi,

Try setting the "Parallel Port Sharing" target property to be "Yes".
