compiler cannot resolve the network resource or shared file when linked via a
UNC path (as an example):

\\Server\Volume\File

drive letter so that it can be recognized by the NetLinx compiler.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------- Discontinued V3.X Features -----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following features will no longer be supported with NetLinx Studio V4.0:

* File Transfers for G3 Panels (TPD files).
* File Transfers for Mio Keypads (KPD Files).
* File Transfers to Axcent Masters (TOK Files).
* The Axcess Compiler will be not be installed.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------- V3.4 vs V4.X APW Items -----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
With the V4.0 release of NetLinx Studio, the program will now handle the USB
connections and IPv6 protocols that are available with the new NX-x200 series
masters, along with the new file transfer capabilities. The APW that is saved by
NetLinx Studio V4.x has been adjusted to handle these new settings.

All V3.x transport settings will be read in and “preserved” in a V4.x APW file.
Any USB/IPv6 transport settings saved in V4.x will NOT be seen if you open the
APW file in V3.x of NetLinx Studio, but you will see your original V3.x settings.

Consequently, reading a V4.x APW file with a NetLinx Studio V3.x application will
have some side-effects. Any Master Directory settings specified for your
Non-System file transfers will be lost if you saved the V4.x APW file back to
a V3.x APW file.

Since NetLinx Studio V4.x has discontinued support for Axcent Masters along with
KPD, TPD, and TOK file transfers, the V4.x APW will NOT attempt to keep this
items within your APW file. The user will be warned about what is being removed
and will have the option of canceling the opening of the V3.x APW file.

It is recommended that the user should do a “Save As Workspace…” when they have
read in a V3.x APW to preserve a copy in the event of any problems.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------- Known Issues with the USB Gadget Driver Installation --------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you can connect to the front USB port of the new NX-x200 series master
controllers to use as the "program port", the USB driver may not load properly.
Therefore, the master may not show up in the USB tab of the Communication Settings
dialog.

Please read the USBGadgetDriverInstallationNotes.docx file located in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AMX Control Disc\NetLinx Studio 4\USBGadgetDriver

for additional information on installing the USB driver required to communicate
with the NX-x200 Series Controllers via the USB Program Port.
