Can someone help me? When I run the Control builder to load the DTM program the Engineering program crashes and I can not do anything else. I am using windows 7 and Freelance 2016.
Suggested to check the device DTM you are trying to integrate is compatible with Freelance 2016. You can check @ http://new.abb.com/control-systems/essential-automation/freelance/fieldbus/devi
ce-integration-center list of devices for communication protocol used.
In majority cases It's issue of compatibility between Engineering Frame, FDT/DTM base and shared component, device DTM type/version.
So verify through above mentioned document that your Freelance 2016 software installed with required latest microsoft updates , Device DTM is compatible to installed FDT/DTM base and shared component, and devie DTM is integrated and tested by DIC team...
From the image you have attached seems, FDT base and share container issue. check compatibity for that or if any microsoft update is missing... also seems device description file is missing ... so get device DTM setup file from authentic sources...or make sure device dtm is installed correctly...
From image looks like some ac 800f demo project... but if it is related to some customer facing project get connect with DIC people at email@example.com if unresolved...
I agree with Sumit. Looks like an installation problem.
Do a repair installation of Freelance. Just start the setup again. It will ask to stop the emulator service. Agree to that and it should present you with the 3 maintenance options Modify, Repair and Remove. Select Modify first and check if the FDT components have been checked. Should look like this
If not, check the boxes and continue with a modify installation. If the boxes are checked already, go back and Select the Repair version.
!! Boot the PC after the installation is finished.
Try if it works.
If you still get the crashes uninstall all the DTM's except the S800 and S900 DTM's that also where part of the repair install. After uninstalling all other DTM's reboot your PC!
Try again. This time it should not crash. If it still does, repeat the repair install. Could be that the uninstall of the DTM's has corrupted some shared components.
Now it should definitely work.
Then piece for piece install your DTM's and after each install start the Freelance engineering. This way you should find the DTM that is responsible for the crash.
According to your screenshot the crash already happens, when Freelance engineering is browsing the PC for DTM's and then tries to initialize them.
