I am still struggling with the Giant LED Message Display.
I have built two boards both work well in Moving Message Mode.
The problem I am having is in the ANIMATE and STATIC Mode.

The error is always the same run-time-error 8002 invalid port number.

I have downloaded the Interface for PIC’S this will not run on both my Windows XP machines.

I have changed the History file to meet my Directory Settings this would appear to be ok as the Moving mode works ok..

I have also read all the information on the Message Board, But it still will not work..

Perhaps I should be satisfied that the Project works well in the Moving Mode, But I would love to get the whole thing working.

I am running Windows XP Pro on both machines.

Many thanks Peter

Peter, I designed that cct. But I've never heard of Error 8002. What does it say it is? Use XP's Help File if you can to find out.

I believe that is the error code for an invalid COM port number. I've had it a few times when playing around with the Microchip virtual COM port from Visual Basic.

Hi Thanks every one for the advice.

I have renamed MSCOMM32.OCX to mscomm32.old and ran the Programme again.

An error message appeared (Failed to load EPEserial from EPEserialIO.OCX Your version may be out off date Etc Etc.

Is it true to say that the only reason the Programme to be part working was due to the MSCOMM32 belonging to Autocad being in the System32 Folder.

At this point I am LOST.

Thanks again Peter

Peter - MSCOMM32.OCX is not required to load EPEserialIO.OCX. As I discovered recently, the EPE... file is a replacement for MS...

It's function is to allow access from Visual Basic, or similar, to serial communications.

The commands used for each of these is broadly similar but still different (I believe the originator of EPE...OCX, Joe Farr, is a professional developer who based his OCX on MSCOMM... legitimately).

I would suggest you reinstall EPESerialIO.OCX (believe downloadable on its own) and try it again. Leave MSCOMM32 where it is for the moment. With any luck that will solve your problem.
